Cooking With Tea Week: Fat-Blasting Salad
I don’t know about you…
…But if I have to order one more nutrition-less iceberg lettuce “salad” in a restaurant with a single tomato and cucumber on- it I think I’m going to scream!
Thankfully when cooking at home you can pack clean, organic nutrition as well as fat-burning superfoods like in the salad below.
Enter Course 2 of our 4-Course Fat-burning feast week.
It’s a fat-blasting weight loss salad made with Wu-Long poached pears.
You’re going to LOOK like an expert chef…
… But the recipe is actually really, really simple!
Why Wu-Long Poached Pears Salad?
This salad is made for nutrient density, flavor, and fat-burning!
Pears are packed with fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, & Copper
They are touted as the second highest source of flavonols among ALL fruits and veggies!
Plus, they offer incredible antioxidant and anti-inflammatory support.
Arugula is a great substitution to other salad greens, as a peppery garnish on meats, or to add zest in your soups.
Arugula has a crisp, lemony, peppery flavor so a little bit goes a long way.
I like to keep salads made with arugula very simple so that I can taste this delicious green leaf.
It’s a rich source of phytochemicals that fight cancer, as well as a great source of Vitamins A, C, K, and folic acid.
Arugula is great in hot weather because it cools your body.
And speaking of your body… arugula is also an aphrodisiac, a fact that was discovered by the Romans centuries ago when they combined arugula with other herbs to create a sort of sexual enhancement potion…
So if YOU want to create a four-course fat-blasting feast with somebody you love… that way… arugula salad is going to… err… increase the chemistry!
I love walnuts and put them on almost everything.
I crunch them up as a crust in baking, swirl them into yogurt, sprinkle them on salads, and I especially love to crack them open raw for maximum health benefits.
Read more about walnuts in this sweet little picture I took of one the other day with a list of my favorite walnut benefits:
If you would have asked me a few months ago – I would have been VERY hard-pressed to find a way to add fat-blasting Wu-Long to salads.
But alas, last month my husband and I discovered poached pears as a breakfast food and now we’re poaching them in Wu-Long for everything – especially dessert!!!
Wu-Long is one of nature’s oldest and purest fat-loss drinks.
It makes you slimmer, healthier… and studies show it even makes you HAPPIER!
