Fresh papaya, in addition to tasting like a tropical dream, contains the digestive enzyme papain. This makes it a wonderful complement to richer dishes that contain legumes and animal proteins. It is also in season during our colder months, bringing a bit of sun to our shorter days up north. This stew also uses cheese and avocado in balanced amounts to add rich flavor and texture, as well as, nutrition (calcium from cheese and mono-unsaturated fat from avocado). In a consistent, long-term therapeutic lifestyle focuses on how to add favorites vs. restrict them.
I love turning ingredient labels into recipes so played with this one – adding edamame for more protein and came up with the following adaptation of this salad. The smell is absolutely intoxicating as you make this salad. I haven’t tried the store’s version of it to see how close I am to the original in taste, but I think that’s OK.
This is another take on the popular CARE Orange and Grape Chicken Salad. With this version, I want to show you how easy it is to create a completely new taste with just a few substitutions. In this case, I change out oranges to take advantage of now in-season blueberries. I also switch to a low-fat mayo allowing me to add extra nutrition and crunch with the addition of walnuts.
A nutrient-rich, convenient, throw-together-Sunday-night grab and go breakfast idea! This is how to make a therapeutic lifestyle doable.
