Free Whole Foods salad!


O.K. I lied. Uh. Sorry.

But it feels like it is for free. Did you know that Whole Foods Market has a collection of it’s recipes online? Did you know that the recipes are actually really good? My salad feels like it was for free because it is full of ingredients I already have in my refrigerator, my pantry and my garden. Click here to view the recipe for Brown Rice Al Fresco Salad. It is a crispy, tangy rice salad, perfect with turkey sandwiches. The only thing I did differently was to substitute half lime juice for the lemon juice since I was short a couple of lemons and I used a little less mint since my herb garden is a little sleepy at this time of the year.

It’s January. A new year. But do yourself a favor. Instead of making resolutions for your health that you’ll never keep, just look around. A healthy lifestyle is as close as adding a new recipe to your arsenal. Look for recipes that feature whole grains, lean meats, low-fat dairy and lots and lots of fruits and veggies. Enjoy!

    Mimi- this looks so tasty…. mouth watering infact and I can almost smell the summer (even though I am looking out over a frozen ocean and my hair is frozen)

    Mimi, I LOVE Whole Foods recipes and have been using them for a while now. A family favourite is their white turkey chili which I’ve also made as a stew with cut up chicken breasts. Try it sometime! xoxo

      Thanks Natasha! I’ll have to check it out. I love chili and making a chili with chicken chunks sounds wonderful!
