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
Dressing for Outdoor Winter Exercise
Dress appropriately and comfortably for cold weather exercise. Multiple layers will initially keep you warm and you can easily remove them, one at a time, as your body heats up. Likewise, a hat prevents substantial heat loss through the head and can also be easily removed.

Recipe
Dark Chocolate Zucchini (or summer squash) Cake
Category: Desserts
Description: Dark chocolate the bitter sweet treat! It's more than wishful thinking - chocolate can be good for you. Studies show that eating chocolate, primarily dark chocolate, may contribute to improved cardiovascular health. Packed with natural antioxidants, dark chocolate and cocoa sit in the same good-for-you category as green tea and blueberries. That's because chocolate comes from cacao beans (or cocoa beans), which grow on the cacao tree and are full of natural plant nutrients. Most of the studies to date highlight dark chocolate's health values because it has the highest percentage of cocoa solids, therefore more antioxidants.
*Health Fact! 40g of cocoa powder a day for 4 weeks has been proven to increase HDL (good) cholesterol by 5% while decreasing LDL (bad cholesterol by 14%!
As a part of the summer squash family, zucchini not only offers delightful taste and texture to many dishes, but also carries with it many health bene?ts.
