Incredible! 5.0/5
(3 ratings)

Sweet salad that can be used at any meal, appetizer, lunch, dinner or dessert.
Uses healthy ingredients:
Sesame seeds - are a very good source of manganese and copper, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorous, vitamin B1, zinc and dietary fiber. In addition, sesame seeds contain two unique substances: sesamin and sesamolin. Both of these substances belong to a group of special beneficial fibers called lignans, and have been shown to have a cholesterol-lowering effect
Olive Oil - lowers cholesterol, blood pressure and reduces body fat.
Avocado - added to salads helps the body absorb the health-promoting carotenoids that vegetables provide and contain oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that may help to lower cholesterol..
Spinach - provides more nutrients than any other food and is an excellent source for vitamin K, A, manganese and folate, it also contains at least 13 different flavonoid compounds that function as antioxidants and as anti-cancer agents.
Pure Grade B Maple Syrup - contains many minerals including zinc and manganese important in energy production and antioxidant defenses if you are deficient in this mineral the level of HDL good cholesterol is decreased.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Stew
Very Good 4.7/5

I love this stew! It is so easy and leaves me feeling satisfied. I use 3/4 cup as a serving. If it is too spicy for you, substitute a can of diced tomatoes for one of the diced tomatoes w/chilies.

Very Good 4.0/5

With just a few ingredients, this is simple to make. Yet its versatile enough to adapt. As made, its low sodium and low fat, and high in protein and vitamins. I bought all of the ingredients at Trader Joe's, but I am sure you can find them at the regular grocery store.
