SOBODY HEALTHY RECIPES

Apple 26

Forget the coleslaw! This simple salad is a fresh, crunchy delight: healthy, full of flavour, delicious, yet easy and quick to make. And there is no need for claggy mayonnaise either!

Apple 21

This salad combines the sweet tartness of green apple with fresh crunchy celery, carrots and sweet potato. (Yes you can eat it raw!). Walnuts and pumpkin seeds add extra crunch and nutritional value.

Apple 15

These ingredients are complimented with a gingery nutty tahini dressing. To make this dressing creamier and to boost its nutritional content you can add protein powder; plant-based ones work well (soy and pea), as does whey.

Apple 2 prep

This salad is super as a main dish or as an accompaniment. It also keeps well in the refrigerator for about 3-4 days too.

Apple 2Serves: 8 as a side dish, 4 as main dish

Preparation time: 15 mins

Ingredients:

Salad:

  • 2 Granny Smith apples, cut into matchsticks

Mango Ginger Iced Tea

The first in my series: Ultimate Guide to Nutrients is just hours away! The first installment will be all about water. All recipes this week will be “water based”. I’m starting with this delightful, delicious and nutritious tea.
I would recommend using green tea, or rooibos tea instead of black tea. Green and Rooibos are very high in anti-oxidants. Mango is VERY high in vitamin C, as well as vitamin A, potassium and vitamin B-6.

Here is a wonderful infographic showing the many health benefits of Ginger!

So, onto the recipe! The recipe is from My Yellow Apron. ENJOY!!

Mango Ginger Iced Tea Mango Ginger Iced Tea

I know we are just couple of days into spring yet it feels like summer here in Northern California. It gets very dry here during Summer and I’m not a fan of hot weather. I am a winter/fall girl- ANY DAY. I would rather be bundled up and drink non-stop hot coffee than dream about beaches in sandals. I have to admit one thing here, I am not a fan of cold tea or coffee either. I’m very strict (to the point of supremely annoying while sticking to my favorites). One of the blogging groups that I’m part of has a theme going – Mangoes. I just wrote a post on Green Mango Lentil Soup.., If you missed it here is the link –  Lentil Soup (Dal) with Green Mango and now I’m tasked with another mango recipe. I got a bag full of not-so-sweet ripe…

Strawberry Banana Mango Smoothie – happyhannahlove

6f5b33584d66fdd504d3189ab516c5df

Since it’s Meet N Greet weekend, I wanted to share one more fellow blogger posts. This one is a fruit smoothie from Happy Hanna Love…very tasty, and very healthy! One tip-I’d add a handful or 2 of spinach and a scoop of your favorite protein powder (unflavored or vanilla). It’ll bump up the protein , vitamin & mineral content (and turn it a bizzare color), but you won’t even taste the difference. The fruit is still the star of the show. For Hannah’s recipe, see the link below.
