Tasty Recipe To Share (Gluten Free)

By | Kids nutrition, Nutrition, Recipes, Uncategorized

I visited my childhood home in Elk River, MN. Nothing like some home cooked food and family time.  I asked our new resident chef at the Fit Moms Transformation Center to serve us up a healthy gluten free option for Thanksgiving.  Hallie is her name and you can learn more about her and her massive credentials and resume by clicking here.

Baby Greens with Cranberry Orange Dressing & Pumpkin Seeds1 a salad

The contrast of the bright mixed greens and blushing pink dressing in this salad makes it a quintessential holiday dish.

Serves 8

For the salad:

2 (5-ounce) packages mixed baby greens
¾ cup toasted pumpkin seeds
½ cup dried cranberries, preferably fruit juice sweetened

For the dressing:

½ cup homemade cranberry sauce
½ cup fresh orange juice
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon maple syrup, or to taste
1 tablespoon grainy gluten-free mustard
Pinch of sea salt

Toss all of the salad ingredients together in a large bowl. In a blender, combine all of the ingredients for the dressing. Blend until creamy and smooth. Taste and add more maple syrup for extra sweetness if desired.

Drizzle the dressing over the salad just before serving. Toss to coat. (You may not use all of the dressing. Store leftover dressing in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.)

This was week one of having my meals prepared and cooked for me.  Each of the recipes that you see below were awesome.  I especially loved the meat loaf, it was AMAZING.  The turkey roll-ups were something that I have never had before and were tasty little treats.  I am looking forward to expanding the amount and types of vegetables that I am eating on a regular basis.  I must say both of these vegetable dishes were awesome.  The bacon really added some nice flavor to the brussel sprouts.
