Jody's Honey Curry Salad

Description:
This recipe is packed with flavour...a great way to get your family addicted to salads! The kids will love the blueberries plus they have such great health benefits for all the family. Blueberries are rich in Vitamins A, C, E and beta-carotene as well as rich in the minerals potassium, manganese, magnesium. They are very high in fiber and low in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium. But this is just the tip of the nutritional iceberg, for recent studies tell us that of all fresh fruits and vegetables, blueberries provide the most health-protecting antioxidants, those valuable elements which prevent cancer-causing cell damage and may limit the changes wrought by age related diseases. The properties of blueberries cross the blood brain barrier to effect these benefits. Antioxidants help to stop the production of free radicals. Free radicals are groups of atoms that impair the cells and the immune system which leads to disease. Anti-oxidants bind the the free electrons in free radicals.

Ingredients:
½ onions chopped
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp curry powder
½ tsp mustard powder

½ tsp turmeric
½ tsp celery seed
½ tsp salt
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
½ cup honey
1 cup safflower oil

Salad:
1 bag spinach leaves
½ cup toasted almonds
½ red onion – diced
1 ½ cups blueberries

Optional:
Feta crumbles



Directions:
In a blender combine 1st set of ingredients, plus turmeric, celery seed and salt. Blend well, then add vinegar and honey until creamy. In a steady stream slowly add oil.
Toss salad with enough dressing to coat greens.
You will have dressing left over to make further salad.
Top with grilled chicken or salmon for a meal, or serve as a side.

Note: Best if dressing made the day before.

Store remainder of dressing in glass container with lid and refrigerate.


Notes: Agave can be substituted for honey if blood sugars are a concern.

Recipe
Toasted Pumpkin Seeds
Category: Snacks
Description: Pumpkin seeds, also known as pepitas, are flat, dark green seeds.

Subtly sweet and nutty with a malleable, chewy texture, the roasted seeds from inside your Halloween pumpkin are one of the most nutritious and flavorful seeds around. While pumpkin seeds are available year round, they are the freshest in the fall when pumpkins are in season.

Pumpkin Seeds May Promote Prostate Health

Benign prostatic hypertrophy, or BPH, is a condition that commonly affects men 50 years and older. BPH involves enlargement of the prostate gland. One of the factors that contributes to BPH is overstimulation of the prostate cells by testosterone and its conversion product, DHT (dihydrotestosterone). Components in pumpkin seed oil appear able to interrupt this triggering of prostate cell multiplication by testosterone and DHT, although the exact mechanism for this effect is still a matter of discussion. Equally open for discussion is the relationship between pumpkin seed oil extracts (which could be purchased in the form of a dietary supplement) and pumpkin seeds themselves.

Either way, they are a great healthy snack.
