Keep Calm and Eat Healthy

"Let food be thy medicine, and let thy medicine be food." Hippocrates

Today's lunch was spectacular so I had to share it with you!  Most health conscious people eat salads quite often.  Romaine lettuce, Boston, Green Leaf, Endive & Radicchio, etc. and that can get boring.  So today I put together a medley of Organic Baby Spinach, Shredded Green Cabbage, Chopped Broccoli, Diced Carrots, Red Cabbage, Jicama, Green Bell Peppers, Radish & Celery, topped off with mini pearl Grape Tomatoes!  It was really delicious and a great change from my usual Romaine mix.  

I never use any sort of bottled dressing.  I am strictly an Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Balsamic or Fresh squeezed Meyer Lemon (from my lemon tree), but today's dressing was a nice change. I dressed my salad today with Bragg's Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Bragg's Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, it complimented the shredded cabbage and other vegetables well.  If you don't already use Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar you should definitely try it.

 Apple Cider Vinegar has been highly regarded throughout history.  In 400 B.C. the great Hippocrates, Father of Medicine, used it for its amazing health qualities. 

Some Health benefits listed are:  It's Rich in Enzymes & Potassium, Supports a Healthy Immune System, Helps Control Weight, Promotes Digestion and PH Balance, Helps Soothe Dry Throats, Helps remove Body Sludge Toxins, Helps Maintain Healthy Skin, Helps promote Youthful Healthy Bodies, Soothes Irritated Skin, Relieves Muscle Pain from Exercise.

You can go directly to the website I linked here:  Bragg Live Foods for a host of amazing products I highly recommend and a company you can trust.  Bon Appétit!

This is awesome and very helpful. One thing I need some help with is that I never know what the proportions are for olive oil and vinegar. Do I add as much vinegar as I do olive oil?

Also, do you have an e-mail that you can be reached at?

Thanks for visiting Chris! Try around 1/4 cup vinegar to 1/2 cup Olive Oil in a shaker bottle. That should be a nice balance. My email is: reneedelano@mac.com
