Awhile back I supported a Kickstarter for The UpStanding Desk and received one of the first desks off the production line for it this week! I’ve been curious about trying a standing desk for awhile after reading about all the benefits on LifeHacker, but not thrilled about the idea of buying a pricey desk to replace my existing desk. The UpStanding desk seemed like a stylish solution to convert my existing desk to a standing desk while not being insanely pricey and easy to change if it does not work. Hubby sweetly set it up for me today and it looks great!
Basically it’s a wood add-on stand for existing sitting desks and it’s added storage space to my current desk.
It will take a little getting used to and I need to find a good anti-fatigue mat for the floor, but I’m determined to try it for the next month and report back on how the adjustment is going. And not feeling guilty for sitting at my computer for too long researching and writing recipes!
I can’t feel guilty about this summer themed creamy dill salad dressing, it’s a great way to add a creamy summery flavor to a salad using the good fats in avocado and with a bright and fun dilly flavor.
Summer Dill Dressing
- 1 avocado, seeded and scooped
- 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1 tbsp. dill weed
- 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1 tsp. vegan Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp. onion powder
- 1/2 cup water, as needed
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend to a smooth and creamy texture. Serve as a salad dressing, dip or spread. Makes 2-4 servings.
The thick and creamy texture of the dressing was perfect for coating a loaded romaine salad.
And topping with shelled hemp seeds and more nutritional yeast, yum.
The flavor has a bright, tangy, and slightly kicky dill flavor, great paired with a refreshing and cool summer salad or using as a dip for veggie sticks.
