Yes-it is so easy it isn't even funny :

3 Tbsp prepared mustard (they say yellow-I use whatever I have-now it's Dijon)
3 Tbsp agave nectar
2 Tbsp vinegar (they say rice v., I use Apple Cider as it's healthier)
1 Tbsp oil (they say olive, I use Flax)

we use this all of the time and still have yet to get tired of it! I'm sure one could do it different ways, but this works for us.

we get bored too. It is taken from Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's (The) Vegan Table-pg 100. Since we use it all of the time, I made the slightly healthier substitutes and it tastes fine and dandy.

You wanna know something funny? Yesterday I just received 3 new cookbooks from Amazon....after I posted my comment on your dressing I sat down with Vegan Table and noticed it right away. :)

Anything else from that book you would recommend? Lots of stuff looks yummy.

moves

core synergistics---there is something wrong with my right shoulder for the past 4 days now. At first it was hurting and my arm felt a little numb. My arm feels alright but
the shoulder still hurts and it feels a bit week. I still tried my best with this workout. I didn't push quite as hard with the pushups and used a little less weight on things like the
x squat shoulder presses. Hopefully it will pass.

<><><><><><><><>

meals

fruit salaaaaad~ (same as yesterday)
big mug black org. coffee, 1 square dark chocolate
yummy veggie pizza-4 thin slices
2 dates
1 banana
(6:00 workout)
(out to a Irish Pub)roasted veggie sandwich, small mixed green salad, 1 pint Irish Cider, 1 glass Cabernet
small bowl of my granola, unsw almond milk, agave
apple, 2 square dark chocolate
