Healthy Red Potato Salad 

Print Friendly 

Description:
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.


Ingredients:
•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


Directions:
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.


Servings: 4

Wellness Tip
Do Not Workout in the Smog
Exercising outdoors when air quality is poor can be hard on your lungs and heart. Watch the air quality reports and avoid outdoor exercise when it's hazy. Instead, opt for indoor gyms, fitness centers or malls that properly maintain air temperature and air quality.

Lemon-herb Baked Rainbow Trout
Category: Fish
Description: A lovely delicate baked fish with lemon and french herbs makes a great light dinner or livens up some fresh salad greens.

Rainbow Trout are rich in fat and have particular, natural fatty acids - the main component of fat - not found in any other foods. These fatty acids are missing many hydrogen atoms so they are highly polyunsaturated, more so than other polyunsaturated fatty acids in food. Also, they are longer than most other fatty acids. These structural differences give fish oil fatty acids their unique health properties. They are called "omega-3" fatty acids because of the location of the first two missing hydrogens in their chemical structure. The two main omega-3 fatty acids in fish oils are called EPA* and DHA* for short. EPA and DHA occur naturally only in seafood, and are abundant only in fatty fish and marine animals.
