FOUR BEAN SALAD

Posted by Blogger in Uncategorized

This salad is a great dish to take along to a party.  It’s healthy and delicious: great for sharing but it’s also easy to build your meal around it if the rest of the meal is lacking healthy choices.

 

FOUR BEAN SALAD

1 pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 1 and 1/2 inch lengths

1/2 of a 16-oz box or bag frozen shelled edamame

3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1 Tablespoon Sucanat

1 and 1/2 teaspoons sea salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 (15 oz) can black soybeans, rinsed and drained.

1 (15 oz) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1 small red onion, finely diced

In a 12 inch skillet, heat 1/2 inch of water to boiling over high heat.  Add the green beans and cook 5 minutes or until crisp-tender.  Place the frozen edamame in a colander and drain the green beans over the soybeans.  Rinse with cold water until cool.  Drain well.

In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegars, Sucanat, sea salt, and pepper.  Add the green beans, both soybeans, kidney beans and onion and toss to combine.  Let stand 1 hour to allow the flavors to blend or refrigerate until ready to use.

GET THE PARTY STARTED

Posted by Blogger in Uncategorized

For a lot of people this weekend marks the beginning of the summer parties.  To get you started on the right foot we’re going to be posting recipes over the weekend.  These are all tried and true and recommended by Marilu to help you enjoy the fun without compromising on your health goals.  As Marilu says “Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels.”  But good whole foods DO taste REALLY good.  These recipes make it easy to learn to love the foods that love you.

 

SUGAR SNAP PEA AND CUCUMBER SALAD

1 pound organic sugar snap peas, trimmed

2 Tablespoons chopped toasted walnuts

1 Tablespoon vegetable broth

1 Tablespoon walnut oil

1 and 1/2 teaspoons white wine vinegar

1 Tablespoon chopped fresh organic dill weed

salt and pepper

1 English cucumber, halved lengthwise and cut crosswise into 1/4 inch thick slices

In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, cook the peas in salted water until tender and bright green, about 2 – 3 minutes.  Drain and transfer to a bowl of ice water.  When cold, drain well and pat dry.  Mash the walnuts to a paste with a mortar and pestle.  In a small bowl, whisk together the walnut paste, broth, oil, vinegar, and dill until blended.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  In a large bowl toss the walnut mixture with the peas and cucumber until the vegetables are coated and serve.

THE DIRTY DOZEN

Posted by Blogger in Uncategorized

This is a great weekend to hit your local Farmer’s Market or Roadside Stand.  Even if you don’t live in an area where you can do that you’re bound to be drawn to fresh produce as the weather warms up and the parties begin.  This article was recently featured on THE MARILU HENNER SHOW and it discusses which fruits and vegetables hold the most pesticides.  The more you learn the better equipped you are to make choices.

TAXI

Posted by Blogger in Memory

marilu and danny devito

 

One of the reasons TAXI was such a popular show is that the cast had such a great connection off-screen as well as on.  Those friendships continue to this day.  If you’re a listener of THE MARILU HENNER SHOW you know that Tuesday is the day for TAXI TMI.  When the Taxi theme plays Marilu reaches into her memory (her phenomenal memory) and shares a story about a cast member, something that happened during a taping or another interesting anecdote from her days on the Taxi set.  They range from hysterical to heartwarming and there are always a few surprises.

 

Remember……if you have a question you would like Marilu to answer you can call 267-MARILU1 .  She may play your question on the air.  The line is always open so call anytime!
