Health for Life Cooking in July

Cool Summer Salads and Wraps

Egg-less Salad Lettuce and/or Tortilla Wraps
This is a tofu based filling loaded with lots of veggies and dressed with my no-oil mayo, which I will also be demonstrating. These are quick and easy and are perfect for picnics or a cool summer supper when you don't want to cook. You can enjoy this salad in a sprouted wheat tortilla or in a fresh lettuce leaf. Or you can try it both ways. They are equally delicious!

Mediterranean Kale and Millet Salad
This dish has all the flavors of a pasta salad with no pasta. It's made with whole grain millet and accompanied by fresh and tender marinated kale, white beans, corn, red peppers, fresh from the garden tomatoes, red onion, and olives. This dish is amazingly fresh and so delicious!

Tomato and Cumber Salad
This is a pretty traditional summer time salad that I had never tried until my friend David gave me some tomatoes out of his garden and said "you have to try this salad" and proceeded to tell me how to make it. I love this salad! Talk about fresh!! Wow! With red ripe tomatoes, cool cucumbers, red onion and a sweet red wine vinegar dressing it's the perfect companion to sandwiches, your favorite veggie burger or you can enjoy it all by itself.

Red White and Blueberry Parfait
Perfect for your Independence Day celebration! This is a very lite dessert using fresh seasonal fruits. It's low calorie and has very little fat. There are no processed sugars or extracted oils used and free of dairy, gluten and soy. Contains a small amount of nuts.

And there you have it! Health for Life meals for the hot days of summer!
Class dates are Wednesday July 6 and Tuesday July 12. Hope to see you in class!
