WHAG-25 Live at Noon, Salads for your health

September 15, 2010

I will be on WHAG-25 at noon making two healthy fresh salads today. The first will be a steak and potato salad atop mixed baby greens, with sliced red onion, Wisconsin Smokey Blue cheese and a light Balsamic Honey Vinaigrette dressing. The second salad is a variation of a Greek salad with Wisconsin feta, kalamata olives, red onions, banana peppers, and the same balsamic Honey Vinaigrette dressing.

The dressing is very light and refreshing and even though there is steak and potato on the first salad it’s not a lot, just enough for some great flavor and to give you the feeling of eating a steak and potato dinner with a nice salad. Think of it as a deconstructed Steak dinner at Outback without all the fat of blooming onion but with loads of fresh flavor mirrored with crisp fresh greens.

Clean Eating

September 1, 2010

Clean eating is about more than just letting go of fast food and trying to remove processed food from your diet. It’s a change of life and eating so as to benefit your body and mind and to treat yourself to a better way of life. There is a clean eating magazine publication out there, but if you choose to go at it alone I suggest you remove the white’s in your life. No, not bleach and white vinegar, but white rice, white bread, white pasta, white grains and white sugar.

Substitute honey or brown sugar, or natural sugar, use brown rice instead of white rice and try some whole grain or whole wheat pasta, the flavors are intense and the mouth feel from fresh cooked wheat pasta is incredible. Once in a while it’s ok to slip back and try the whites, but if you want to continue moving forward then make a change in life and try something new.
