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. They stabilize blood sugar due to their low glycemic index. They contain quercetin which protects your DNA and helps breast, prostate and fights lung cancer. Cherries can ease joint pain and also help you recovery from exercise.


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.

Barbecue Grilled Asparagus

Why Dr. Hoody endorses this recipe:

Asparagus is one of the most nutritionally balanced vegetables. It is reputed to be an aphrodisiac, and is especially high in folic acid and potassium. Combine that with salt, needed during the warm weather, and the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of olive oil, this is a wonderful summer dish. 

Looking for a low calorie healthy green, and a great source of nutrients, including fiber, folate and vitamins A, C and K to side to serve with dinner? Try asparagus! Eating asparagus has a number of potential health benefits, including weight loss, improved digestions and lowering blood pressure.


Why Dr. Hoody Endorses this recipe:

Bananas are high in fiber, naturally high in potassium and B6 and vitamin C. In this recipe, as only a small piece of banana is used, is also low in calories. The combination of the dark chocolate and the salt and with the whole package chilled, it is so enticing to the taste buds. That also makes it more digestible.

And remember, dark chocolate can help with brain function, improve the elasticity of your blood vessels, and allow you to elevate your mood. I cannot wait to try these again!
