Citrus Sunrise

by Wai Lana

This recipe was my younger daughter’s solution to sour grapefruit, and it’s become a regular breakfast favorite in our home. Since it strengthens your tissues, arteries, gums, and teeth, this juice is especially helpful for maintaining oral hygiene.

Yield: 1 Juice
Cooking Time: 5 Minutes
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Ingredients: 
  • 2 pink grapefruit
  • 2 tangerines
  • 2 persimmons
Instructions: 

Blend ingredients

Notes: 

Benefits: This refreshing combination cools and replenishes fluids in the body, making it an ideal drink after your morning workout. It also helps relieve arthritis, acne, and varicose veins. Citrus fruits give a boost to your immune system and helps relieve coughs and sore throats. Persimmons help treat gingivitis and canker sores.

Tip: I’m happy to see persimmons, which are common in Asian markets, turning up more and more in regular grocery stores. Always make sure that your persimmons are ripe; otherwise you could be in for an unpleasant surprise! Persimmons are virtually inedible unripe because they’re highly astringent. But if unripe persimmons are all you have, you’ll be glad to know that they ripen quickly after being frozen briefly, then thawed.

Green Salad with Brown Butter Walnut Vinaigrette

This recipe was found on the Food Network, courtesy of Amy Thielen.
salad
Easy to Make     Only 15 Minutes Prep Time     Yields 8 Servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup walnut halves or pieces *Walnuts contain a lot of fat, and therefore, a lot of calories.  Although they have many health benefits, and have their place in a healthy diet, be cautious of your intake.
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil *Similarly to walnuts, olive oil is filled with healthy fat and is a high-caloric food. 
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, plus more for the salad
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 10 cups mixed garden greens
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon aged balsamic vinegar
  • 2 ounces crumbled aged blue cheese *You can also try feta of goat cheese

Directions:

  • Heat a small skillet over medium-low heat and add the walnuts, butter, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, the garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper. Cook very gently, stirring often, until the walnuts turn golden brown and the garlic has cooked, about 10 minutes. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil to the skillet to slow the cooking, and set aside.
  • When ready to serve, toss the greens with a little salt and pepper. Add the lemon juice and vinegar to the walnut mixture and spoon the nuts over the salad, adding as much of the dressing as needed to lightly coat the leaves. Add the blue cheese, and toss again.
