Have you seen the movie Julie and Julia? Or read the book? Julie Powell became an internet celebrity with her 2004 blog recording her yearlong adventure cooking every recipe in Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. I am taking on a similar challenge, only I am blogging my way through a very healthy cookbook! And I will learn to master the art of healthy cooking! The book is called Eat For Health by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, M.D. I will cook every recipe start to finish in four weeks just as they are laid out in the book. I will write about the recipes, show you pictures, and tell you how my SAD (Standard American Diet) eating, carnivorous husband likes them too. (See archives below.) He is behind me 100%!!

Eat to Live/ Day 2

Hello All,
I've read Eat to Live cover-to-cover at least 5 times. And so I've read this recipe (Apple Pie Salad) over and over again and while I always wanted to make it, I just never did!! And so FINALLY, I am taking action!! It feels really good!! And I must say that the Apple Pie Salad was just as tasty as I imagined all those years!! As you can see from the picture, I added a ton of cinnamon in the dressing--plus I added half spinach for the lettuce. It was sweet (but not too sweet), cinnamony, and I just felt like Superwoman when I was done eating!! I made the Black Forest Cream of Mushroom Soup (from Eat for Health) to go with it--and it was just a perfect supper. Haze gave the salad a B+/ I said A-
