Healthy Broccoli Salad 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Cruciferous vegetables are known to have protective effects against cancer. DIM is destroyed by cooking – so getting some raw seems like a good idea. Diindolylmethane (DIM) is being studied at UC Berkeley for its role in cancer therapy. DIM is found in raw cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, cauliflower and kale. There is the popular broccoli salad with mayonnaise, sugar and bacon, but I wanted a healthier version. Here is what I came up with. I love it when healthy habits taste so great.



Ingredients:
1 head broccoli, chopped (including at least some of the stems)
¼ red onion, chopped
1 cup radicchio, chopped (or use cabbage or any other veggie)
1 carrot, grated
1 cup Mandarin oranges
¼ cup parsley, chopped
¼ cup cashews, chopped (or walnuts or almonds)
2 tablespoons dried cranberries
Juice of 1/2 lemon or lime
Balsamic/Olive oil vinaigrette

Options:
Add some feta cheese or bocconcini cheese
Sprinkle of hemp heart or flax seeds
1 cup of cooked couscous or cooked Quinoa




Directions:
Mix all ingredients, using just enough salad dressing to moisten. I think this is even better if it sits for a little while, allowing the dressing to soften the vegetables.

This is just a starting place! You could use any combination of vegetables, fruits and nuts.

Eat well!

Wellness Tip
Binge Eating Disorder
Binge eating disorder or BED has recently been named the most common eating disorder in this country. Symptoms include out of control eating, eating when not hungry, being embarrassed about the amount of food consumed, and feeling depressed after eating. Many who suffer with BED feel extremely uncomfortable approaching others about it. However, BED can lead to serious health problems when left untreated. A growing number of health professionals are able to help or appropriately refer those with BED.

The “Lucky You” Factor
The “lucky you” factor can be explained by understanding synchronicity. Synchronicity and co-creation are part of the systems of benevolent design that are available to all of us. Synchronicity guides you to meet the people you are supposed to meet, and have the situations unfold that you potentially could have. The result is that your life moves faster, and there is more balance because of it.

Braised Chicken Slow Cooker/Crock Pot Recipe
Category: Slow Cooker!
Description: This slow cooker chicken recipe is great to make the night before or in the morning and it will be already for you at the end of the day. You may add some extra vegetable to this dish or cook separately.
Chicken is rated as a very good source of protein, providing 67.6% of the daily value for protein in 4 ounces. The structure of humans and animals is built on protein. We derive our amino acids from animal and plant sources of protein, then rearrange the nitrogen to make the pattern of amino acids we require.
People who are meat eaters, but are looking for ways to reduce the amount of fat in their meals, can try eating more chicken. The leanest part of the chicken is the chicken breast, which has less than half the fat of a trimmed Choice grade T-bone steak. The fat in chicken is also less saturated than beef fat. However, eating the chicken with the skin doubles the amount of fat and saturated fat in the food. For this reason, chicken is best skinned before cooking.
