Growing good food, Naturally![ Member listing ]

After the long holidays of eating rich foods and deserts I don't normally indulge in; I like to go back to eating healthy, natural foods. One of my favorites is a simple salad with fruit dressing. Mix lettuce with chopped veggies and add pineapple chunks, orange slices or any "soft" fruit. For the dressing, blend or puree 2 tablespoons of orange or cherry juice with 1 ripe banana till smooth. Pour over salad mix. This method works well with almost any fruit! Use blueberries or cranberries for a more tart dressing; raspberries or pear slices for sweeter version. With no added sugar or oil needed, this dressing light on fat and empty calories. A great little "pick me up" meal in winter!
