Romaine Lettuce Salad Boats

Healthy eating should be fun, right? And salads should be filling and hit the spot without leaving you feel hungry an hour later. I love using tahini (sesame seed butter) for salad dressings, because it adds a creamy satisfying texture that also helps create satiety due to the healthy fats it contains.

Sesame seeds are a nutritional power house, and you can add them to your diet by using tahini in smoothies, gluten-free toast and dips like hummus.

HERE ARE SOME NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS OF SESAME SEEDS:

  • Sesame seeds contain two unique substances: sesamin and sesamolin, both of which have been shown to have a cholesterol-lowering effect and help prevent high blood pressure
  • Sesamin has also been found to protect the liver from oxidative damage
  • A quarter-cup of sesame seeds supplies 74.0% of the daily value for copper, 31.6% of the DV for magnesium, and 35.1% of the DV for calcium
  • Good source of both dietary fiber and monounsaturated fats

Here is one of my favourite recipes with a super delish tahini dressing.
