Power Salads: Fact or Fiction?

We’ve all been told to eat our veggies. We’ve all been told raw veggies are better than cooked veggies. Let’s take a look at the salad and see if it really Alternative Health is a power food.
 
With raw vegetables being so much higher in nutrients than cooked veggies, it’s no wonder eating a large salad a day has been encouraged for many decades now. In just one sitting, you are able to receive approximately 5 servings of your daily intake. That is half of your recommended intake in just one meal. I’d say that’s a power food!

And there are ways you can make it even more powerful:

To add more substance and nutrients to your salads, nuts and fruits are a great idea – you add more nutrients and spice things up! My personal favorites are pine nuts, almonds, cranberries, mandarins and pears.

For those meat lovers out there, adding some grilled Chicken is a great addition to your healthy salad.

Salad Dressing Stumper!

With all the hype about the importance of eating healthy salads, why is it so hard to find a salad dressing without sugar? I don’t know about you, but every time I look for a ready made salad dressing, sugar seems to be one of the top 4 ingredients. I would have to say, out of 10, I only found one. To top it off, I did not even enjoy it.

I do love my basic oil and vinegar salads, but I was in need of change.

It just so happened that my sister-in-law introduced my husband and I to a great salad dressing. But the catch, it required sugar. So I decided to replace the sugar with Xylitol, a natural sweetener that even diabetics can enjoy. Let me tell you, it turned out GREAT! Both my husband and I couldn’t tell the difference.

So without any further delay, I’m going to share the recipe with you…….

3 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
1 Tsp Mustard
1 Tsp Grey Sea Salt
1 Tsp Xylitol

Just mix all ingredients very well and presto, a great healthy dressing. I’m actually planning to try this dressing on Chicken and Fish as well.

This will make enough for a large single serving. Double up the dressing to share your incredible salad with others.

Who said healthy has no flavor!
