Strawberry Spinach Salad with Pecans, Goat Feta and Poppy Seed Salad Dressing

Strawberry Spinach with Pecans, Feta and Poppy Seed Salad Dressing is quick, easy and healthy.  Made with just 5 ingredients, it comes together in minutes.

Why Dr. Hoody endorses this recipe:

Now, this is a true summer delight. Strawberries and spinach are a classic together.  Spinach is low in carbs and a nutrient-rich vegetable and contains potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, folic acid and vitamins A, C and K1. It can decrease your blood sugar, blood pressure, and inhibit cancer and is a potent anti-inflammatory. Strawberries are also high in vitamins C and potassium, and can help prevent heart disease and can lower blood sugar. Pecans are the necessary crunchy element and that no good salad should be without.  Pecans are also a good of calcium, magnesium, potassium and contain protein and the healthy monounsaturated fats which can lower blood pressure.  Not into pecans?  Try swapping them out with slivered almonds or chopped walnuts. And goat feta cheese is low-fat. And if you use Cathy’s Gluten Free Poppy Seed Dressing, its Free from refined sugars.  Healthy, beautiful and always a crowd pleaser!

Poppy Seed Salad Dressing

Why Dr. Hoody endorses this recipe:

Poppy Seed Salad Dressing is a lovely sweet and tangy topping for fresh greens and fruit, like our Strawberry Spinach Salad.  Free from refined sugars, this dressing recipe makes a healthful addition to your salad.

Honey, especially raw honey, contains thousands more nutrients, including enzymes, than refined (clear) honey.  One easy way to know if it’s real raw honey – it should be cloudy and often contains gritty pieces.  And, real raw honey is always a bit more expensive.  But, we should be using a smaller amount anyway.

Cherry Balsamic Pork Tenderloin

Why Dr. Hoody endorses this recipe:

Cherries have fiber, potassium and many vitamins. They also contain anthocyanins which are bio active compounds that provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and pro cardiovascular. Cherries stabilize blood sugar due to their low glycemic index. They contain quercetin which protects your DNA and helps breast, prostate and fights lung cancer. And they can ease joint pain and also help you recovery from exercise.

GRILLED BALSAMIC GLAZED SALMON WITH ASPARAGUS

Why Dr. Hoody endorses this recipe:

Asparagus may have plenty of health and nutritional benefits but when you paired it up with salmon that is particularly high in omega-3 fatty acids, you have a Super Uber Nutritious dinner in 12 minutes. Salmon, rich in Omega 3s have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. And the balsamic glaze has just enough sweetness to cause your taste buds to increase the secretion of enzymes. That will ensure better digestion. Is your mouth watering yet?

Grilled Balsamic Glazed Salmon—the ultimate quick and healthy anytime meal. This meal requires only 4 ingredients.  The key to this salmon recipe—use good ingredients and let them speak for themselves.
