Creamy mango jalapeno dressing has just a little sweet from mango, some balanced heat from jalapeno, and some awesome zest from the lime juice + fish sauce.

Today is ALL about Paleo for performance and flavoring responsibly.

Foods designed to fuel your athletic performance have an ugly reputation for being either chock FULL of scary, non-food ingredients or they're bland, monotonous, uninspired, etc.

My sweet friend, Steph Gaudreau, who's the brainy beauty behind the popular blog Stupid Easy Paleo, just authored a new book that's aimed at providing simple, delicious recipes designed to properly fuel your performance. If you'd like to learn more about Steph and her perspectives on Paleo for performance, when to eat what, and even strength training for women, you should check out Episode 04 of the Fed+Fit Podcast!

Now, back to this scrumptious mango jalapeno dressing. This recipe is straight out of Steph's new book and I have to admit that while I knew it'd be delicious, I was totally surprised by HOW delicious it turned out. I was amazed and immediately started dunking everything in site in its golden goodness.

What can YOU eat it on? Well, it pairs pretty fantastically with my Paleo Jerk Chicken, but you could drizzle it over any salad! Steph's recipe for Crunchy Slaw with Chicken is another fantastic option – found on page 158 of her book, The Performance Paleo Cookbook.
