Jody's Honey Curry Salad 

Print Friendly 

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.

Wellness Tip
Definition of Light on a Food Label
According to the FDA, the term "light" or "lite" on a food label means that the food contains 1/3 fewer calories or 50% less fat or 50% less sodium than its original version. However, don't forget to check the serving size. A reduction in calories, fat, or sodium will be undone if we take a larger portion.

Windows are Deadly for Birds.
More birds die each year from crashing into windows than are killed by wind turbines and vehicles combined. Birds can't see glass. Help protect them: Move houseplants away from windows, hang old CDs or chimes, plant a shade tree and dim lights. And be sure any feeders and bird baths are at least half a metre away from glass surfaces.

Recipe
Hazelnut Fudge Delight
Category: Gluten-Free
Description: For those of you who love nuts and chocolate this is a fabulous treat. Since the cake is mostly nuts and eggs it is quite healthy and I use 72% or higher dark chocolate for the fudge so it is not overly sweet. Don’t be scared by the 3c of icing sugar. You need that much to offset the 8oz of dark chocolate. I have made this as a rolled cake but the cake is very dense and cracks easily. For your first try cut the cake into 4 equal rectangles and stack it with fudge between each layer and frost with remaining fudge all round.
