SAUERKRAUT SALAD

Why Dr. Hoody endorses this recipe:

 Sauerkraut is a special food that stems from its added benefits during fermentation. The Fermentation process gives it probiotic factors which can also boost the immune system. One serving has 16 cal, 1 g of protein, 3 g of carbohydrate, 0 g of fat and 2 g of fiber. It contains vitamin C, K, B6, iron, manganese, folate, copper and potassium.  It can help with weight loss due to its high fiber and low calories. Somehow sauerkraut has been known to reduce the fat around the belly. Sauerkraut has also been found to improve memory and decrease stress by increasing the absorption of mood regulating minerals including magnesium and zinc. It can also decrease cancer risk and increased heart health. 

COBB SALAD WITH BROWN DERBY DRESSING

Why Dr. Hoody endorses this recipe:

Cobb salad is one of my favorites. An ideal diet should contain a large amount of vegetables and also a good amount of healthy, natural protein. That’s Cobb salad! 

Greens, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, and lots of them, supply ample servings of vegetables for your daily needs. Then mix in your favorite proteins like feta cheese, avocado, chicken or turkey breast, and even a small amount of bacon to make it really tasty. And last, Garnish with your favorite spices and dress with olive oil, lemon and/ or vinegar.

GRILLED LEMON SALMON

Why Dr. Hoody endorses this dish:

Salmon is simply one of the better fish we have available. It is rich in omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, It is a great source of protein. It contains the antioxidant astaxanthin and can help reduce the risk of heart disease and can benefit weight control. 

Salmon is high in B vitamins, as well as potassium and selenium. Eating salmon two times per week is sufficient to reap its benefits.
