I haven't figured out why my comments section under each post is not working! People have been sending me questions via texts, emails, and Facebook messages instead. For everyone to benefit from these terrific questions, here are some recent ones:
1.) Can I use natural crunchy peanut butter for the healthy and easy Peanut Butter Cookie recipe (posted last week)? YES
2.) When people ask me to bring a salad over for holidays or dinner parties, I usually bring my Adventure Salad. On Friday, I was asked how I created such a delicious and healthy salad.
Here is my secret healthy tip. I use finely diced walnuts (I have tried hammering walnuts into tiny bits before and it was not pretty). I like Diamond's Finely Diced Walnuts, which I buy at Target in the baking aisle.
|These walnuts are perfect for baking, cooking, and salads.|
Adventure Salad Recipe
4 big handfuls of mixed greens
2 broccoli bunches- chopped
1 red pepper- chopped
½ cup grape or cherry tomatoes- use what is in season
3 long carrots- chopped
1 cucumber- peeled and chopped
¼ cup walnuts- finely diced
4 tbsp dried cherries- Target's brand Archer Farms sells delicious and good priced dried cherries ($2.99)
3 tbsp goddess dressing
Combine all ingredients in a large serving bowl and toss. I let my kids throw all the ingredients in and toss away! Get messy! Have fun! And eat healthy!
