Good morning! Hopefully you are doing better than I am right now. I am stressed. With a midterm today, personal issues, and a new puppy, I am not doing so well. If anyone has any advice on crate/potty training young puppies, I will gladly take it. She is also very scared. She cowers away from being pet or picked up. If you do manage to get her and lay with her, she will cuddle you for hours. Her name is Nina and she is adorable – but so much work. Now I understand why my mom never let me have a pet growing up….
This is a simple recipe but it is delicious. I find myself making it all the time when I don’t have a clue what I want, but I know I want it to taste good. It never disappoints.
Grilled chicken salad with lemon-tahini yogurt dressing
Recipe: Serves 1
The dressing –
1 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp greek yogurt
squeeze of lemon juice
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp mustard
1 tbsp avocado (optional – I just had it!)
1 tsp Apres vin garlic infused grape seed oil (optional, but awesome)
Directions – Mix it all other and toss with the salad (chopped romaine lettuce, avocado, tomato, grilled chicken, & cucumber).
Tahini * a good source of essential unsaturated fatty acids, copper, iron, calcium, fiber and B vitamins. Copper is good for treating some of the pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Magnesium can help lower blood pressure and help women going through menopause maintain normal sleeping patterns. Also, seseami seeds have the highest content of phytosterols of all nuts! Phytosterols look similar to cholesterol and are believed to lower cholesterol levels, aid in immunity and decrease the risk of some cancers!
Lemon * a great source of vitamin C. Lemons are also said to help balance the bodies PH and put it into a more alkaline state.
