This salad will be very satisfying with a green salad with a few raw vegies and perhaps a little feta cheese and light dressing. Red Potato salads are delicious especially during the summer and there is an endless variety of tastes when you try different herbs and vegetables.
Red potatoes are perfectly healthy, as long as you don't spoil them by adding unhealthy condiments, such as sour cream. Did you know that red potatoes are lower glycemic because it has resistant starch. Red potatoes are higher in nutrients than other potatoes. Resistant starch occurs when some complex carbohydrates, like rice and potatoes are cooked and then chilled. It is starch that "resists" digestion enough to make it slow burning so it keeps your blood sugar level. Your appetite suppressing hormone rises and you stay fuller longer which makes it a great midday meal or part of a main meal.
•8 small red potatoes
•1 red onion, finely chopped
•1/2 cup finely chopped flat leaf parsley
•2 chopped red peppers
•2 T. red wine vinegar
•1/3 cup low-fat mayonnaise
•1 T. flaxseed oil
•1/4 teaspoon salt
•1/4 teaspoon pepper
Put the last 5 ingredients in a jar and shake well.
Wash the potatoes well but do not peel. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the potatoes until firm but not too soft - about 10 15 minutes depending on the size of the potatoes.
Test with a fork. Remove with a slotted spoon and allow them to cool at room temperature before you put the dressing so it doesn't separate.
Cut into quarters when they are cool enough.
Add the rest of the ingredients and the dressing and mix well.
Potatoes are a good source of vitamin B6, C, fibre, potassium and minerals.
Notes: When choosing your potatoes consider that they absorb not only nutrients from the ground but also chemicals that are sprayed on them. So buy organic or from a farmer that does not use chemical sprays.

|Experiencing The Different Vibrational Energy of Ireland|
|I am still in vibrational awe of all that I was able to experience on our Celtic Angel Tour in Ireland. I would like to share some of my personal favourites and some shifts of energy for me. First I would like to state that my vibrational energy is changed. It would be impossible, I belief, to keep my energy the same after visiting some of the Sacred Sights & historical ruins in Ireland. I am in gratitude to have witnessed how other people on the tour experienced different sights we visited. Regardless of experience in working with energy, everyone at some point shared their own AWE. |
