    Resolutions, yes, I make some every year!  
I even have a “pin board” on Pinterest called “Shape Up 2013!”
Boy I hope it does its job!
  
This year, I’m trying to incorporate much more 
healthy food recipes into my life.  
Many, many more vegetables!  
Maybe every Monday on my blog will have to be 
“Healthy Recipe Monday!” 
My son Daniel and his sweet girlfriend Paige are vegetarians–
he and I have many food discussions!  
Stay tuned for maybe 2014–Daniel and I want to have a 
YouTube show that features my recipes and then 
him turning them into something healthy!  🙂 
They gave me two cookbooks for Christmas–
a Southern Pie cookbook and a Vegan one. 
Doubly blessed! 
This recipe is for you Paige!  
And for my Aunt Betty who keeps threatening me 
with her gym bill!  
This salad is really good–it’s very healthy and it’s 
 supposed to give you lots of energy.  
I really love the original “broccoli salad” but 
we Southern cooks ruin the healthiness of 
the broccoli with a lot of mayo and sugar.  
I really didn’t miss it in this salad. 
 
Well, here goes week one…
you know, they say, the best way 
to eat an elephant is one bite at a time…
Mmm...elephant…is that white or dark meat?? ;)

Healthy Veggie Salad
 
You’ll need these healthy ingredients:
  • 2 heads broccoli (1 bunch), stems removed
  • 1 head cauliflower, stems removed
  • 2.5 cups shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 4-6 TBSP fresh lemon juice, to taste
  • kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • 3-4 TBSP Pure maple syrup
In a food processor (or chop by hand) process 
the broccoli (no stems) until fine.
Now process the cauliflower (no stems) 
until fine and add into bowl. 
Do the same with the carrots.
Stir in the sunflower seeds, and  raisins. 
Add lemon juice and seasonings to taste.
Drizzle with maple syrup to taste–I added about 3-4 TBSP.
 
 
The healthy participants…
 
 
Take your broccoli…
 
And turn it into this…
 
 
Take your cauliflower…
 
And do the same thing..
 
Next, the carrots…
 
 
Add it all to a huge bowl…
 
 
Add the sunflower seeds
 
and the raisins…
I threw in regular raisins and golden…
just because I had both…
 
 
Lemon juice…
 
 
And the lovely maple syrup…
 
 
 
Beautiful and Yummy!
 
 
Enjoy!
