Recipe of the Day or a
Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day

The Holidays and Observances Recipe of the Day for March 26, is a Spinach Salad in honor of Spinach Day on March 26!

Spinach is great for you! I'm chemical sensitive, so I pretty much live on mainly Organic Products.  Often I will just add a handful of spinach in with other types of lettuce for salads, but I have several types of Spinach Salads that I love.


The Holidays and Observances Recipe of the Day for March 26, is a Spinach Salad in honor of Spinach Day on March 26!

In the picture above, I added Spinach leaves, sliced tomatoes, sliced & cubed avocado, some edamame and a small handful of almonds for some protein, since I don't eat meat/chicken.  My salad dressing of choice these days is to make my own balsamic vinegar dressing by combining balsamic vinegar with a bit of extra virgin olive oil, which is a healthy fat.


The Holidays and Observances Recipe of the Day for March 26, is a Spinach Salad in honor of Spinach Day on March 26!

In the Spinach Salad above, I used spinach leaves, sliced up tomatoes, mandarin orange slices, and a handful of sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds, and my home made balsamic vinegar dressing.  I would have added avocado also, if I had some at the time!

The third Spinach Salad that I make, that is probably my favorite, is spinach leaves, sliced tomatoes and avocado, with some Light Jarlsberg Cheese cut up, and some chopped up pecans (which can be toasted), with a home made balsamic vinegar dressing. Mandarin Oranges and/or some Pomegranate seeds work well too!
