Green Salad with Pecans and Pears Recipe Ingredients:
Pears the star ingredient in this cake has more nutrients per calorie than calories per nutrient (surprising since they are so sweet). They are what I call a Smart Carb. and are a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin C, copper & vitamin K. They are often considered a hypoallergenic fruit that is less likely to produce an adverse response than other fruits by healthcare practitioners making them a great first fruit fed to infants as a safe way to start.
Pecans are gourmet nuts with a delicious buttery taste and not just in a pecan pie. Also, pecans have an abundance of health benefits. They are heart-healthy, help lower cholesterol, and are high in antioxidants making them a great superfood addition to the green salad with pecans and pears!
Tart little cranberries are a powerful fruit packed with surprising health benefits. You may have heard cranberries are helpful in urinary tract infections but they also have many other health benefits. They are one of the special superfoods that are good for the heart and teeth and help protect you from cancers.
Lemons’ health benefits are immense. To begin they are acidic to the taste but are alkaline-forming in the body. In fact, they are one of the most alkaline-forming superfoods; this makes them great for balancing a highly acidic condition in the body. Also, they are full of many health benefits.
Olive oil was referred to as “Liquid Gold” by the famous Greek poet Homer. If you are what you eat, what would happen if you consumed “Liquid Gold” daily? Extra-virgin olive oil (cold-pressed) is the best fat to use as a salad dressing. Do not use it for cooking. It has a low smoke point and heat makes it susceptible to oxidative damage. Olive oil has so many health benefits I include some every day when I eat my salad. Make sure you are using real olive oil. Have you heard of the olive oil fraud? Find out Which Olive Oil to Buy.
