Tempeh Health Benefits
Tempeh is Full of Protein, and Many Other Wonderful Health Benefits

Tempeh truly is a nutritious superfood full of health benefits including good protein and vitamin B12.  For vegans, it can be challenging to get enough B12. Beans and lentils are full of good nutrition and have many health benefits but they do not have the essential vitamin B12.  Tempeh has the same protein quality as meat and is helpful in reducing cancer, is a powerful probiotic, helps with weight loss and more.

Here is the recipe for my Olive Oil Lemon Juice Salad Dressing.

It tastes great on the tempeh salad. This olive oil lemon juice salad dressing is always enjoyed by everyone who has it with one of my salads. This is why I created the exact recipe years ago.

I love to eat salads with a healthy salad dressing and always make my own salad dressings.  It is the salad dressing that makes it a healthy or unhealthy salad.   A healthy salad is often ruined by drenching it with a highly-processed salad dressing from the supermarket which is not healthy as it is filled with artificial flavorings, colorings, preservatives, sugar, and white distilled vinegar (which is hard on the digestive system).
