This blog is geared toward all things healthy. Resulting from my New Years resolution to improve my health, I intend it as a place to share recipes, exercise tips, equipment ideas with my sisters and all my acquaintances both current and future.

Furhman salad dressing a hit
I had a salad tonight upon which I placed Furhman's balsamic almond dressing. It was really good and easy to make. I made it this morning in a jar using my immersion blender. His Lordship liked it too. Here is the recipe:
Whisk water, vinegar and almond butter together until
mixture is smooth and almond butter is evenly dispersed. Mix in remaining ingredients. I used real onion and garlic as the immersion blender will puree' anything.
We each had some and there is plenty leftover for another salad so way more than 1 serving. Definitely a recipe I will make again.
My curry was awesome too - I only used about 4 oz of meat cut very small as a condiment. To that I added lots of onions, garlic, mushrooms, canned tomatoes and spinach. I cooked it in a little spray coconut oil. In addition to the regular spices - cumin, turmeric, ginger, coriander, and hot pepper, I roasted two cardamom pods and ground them up. That added a lot of sweet! We ate it with small pieces of banana in lieu of mango chutney (which is full of sugar) over cauliflower rice. I found that caulifower organic at Costco and it was delicious steamed with the curry. So no salt or sugar and very little fat! You ladies should try curry - they are so forgiving and full of flavor! We each had a serving and I have some leftover for a lunch!
