Winter Salad with Yogurt Dressing

Radicchio, Lollo Rosso, Romaine and the likes are the classic winter salads. Right now you can buy them easily – whether at the farmer’s market, at the local health food store or in the supermarket. What is special about these winter salads is their high content of bitter substances, which are not only super healthy, but also fantastically counteract cravings for sweets. Good to eat them more often! They taste especially good with a yogurt dressing.

We Are What We Eat!

This means a healthy and balanced diet of healthy food helps the whole body – inside and out. The right foods allow us to feel great and look great with clear skin and healthy hair. 

If we take apples as an example, they contain so many valuable nutrients and trace elements that can bind and neutralize damaging substances in the body such as free radicals. This results in so many benefits such as strong and healthy connective tissue aka beautiful skin!

Try this easy recipe – for a different way to get your apple a day: apple and oat streusel with walnuts (this is a Phase 3 recipe)

Ingredients for 1 serving:
160 g of tart apple (for example Granny Smith)
30 g of rolled oats
15 g of butter (or ghee)
20 g of chopped walnuts
Spices: cinnamon, vanilla bean, lemon juice (optional), a pinch of salt

Preparation:
Peel the apple, cut into thin wedges, (drizzle with lemon juice) and place in a small greased ovenproof dish. Chop the nuts, add the oats and knead them together with the butter / ghee, salt, vanilla and cinnamon to form the streusel (crumble). Spread the streusel over the apple slices and bake at 150°C (300°F) for 20 to 30 minutes.

Re-Balance … what is that like?

The Metabolic Balance Team is already well into their plans after the New Year’s restart.  We’re feeling great and our metabolism is adjusting nicely. One of the wonderful changes we notice every year when we do our plans again and re-balance, is how quickly our sense of taste starts to change. Only a few weeks ago, we’re thinking pizza was tasty whereas now we don’t want it at all! Now we prefer a far better pizza alternative … fresh vegetables with cheese au gratin! Which changes have you noticed since you have been on your plan? We’d love to hear how you’re doing!
