A Win-Win Recipe- Arugula & Strawberry Salad

I hear you’re loving these salad substitutes to tasteless greens, so here’s a salad that is anything but!

Strawberry, Arugula Walnut SaladMost people love the taste of strawberries. And we encourage everyone to eat what they love while giving their body what it needs.  That’s why we call it a win-win!

Want more good reasons to substitute strawberries for less healthy foods?

Strawberries are a good source of Folate, Potassium, Vitamin C, Manganese and Dietary Fiber.  They’re also low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium.

Arugula is a rich source of Iron and Vitamins A and C.

Balanced together with balsamic vinegar and walnuts, the result is divine!

1/2 cup chopped walnuts
4 cups baby arugula
2 cups sliced strawberries (approximately 10 ounces)
2 ounces Parmesan cheese, shaved or crumbled (1/2 cup)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons aged balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1. Toast walnuts in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring frequently until lightly browned, 3-5 minutes.  Transfer to a salad bowl and let cool for 5 minutes.
2. Add arugula, strawberries, Parmesan, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle in vinegar and oil. Toss gently and serve.

Serves: 4
Preparation time: 20 minutes

Remember: By eating what you love AND making small substitutions like this one, you’re on your way to creating your own long-lasting style to staying fit and feeling great.  And that’s what we do at Gourmet Fitness.

What People Are Saying. . .
I just completed Michele’s 90-day MORE program. As Michele will remind you, if you decide to study with her, things don’t happen to us; they happen for us. Michele happened for me just when I needed what she is committed to teaching. Commitment is the key word because she is always thinking of what she can do to help others live happy, successful lives filled with joy. She takes care to really understand what each of her students needs and instinctively suggests just the right message, yoga exercise, meditation, food, experience, etc., that will resonate with them to help them courageously live the life they want. Michele is a gift you deserve to give yourself when you’re finally ready to live your best, authentic life.

...I have suffered from emotional eating for 6 years, during which I have juggled and switched through different therapists and treatment options. I continued to feel "stuck" as the approaches focused on the past and why I acquired my disease. ...Michele's plan of remaining present- right here, right now- in addition to helping me choose love for myself, has allowed me to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually... Michele is a true gift from God.

The benefits have been significant. My reason for doing this yoga is to improve and maintain good health. Each morning class provides me with the motivation to get up and improve my physical and mental strength. I also think one of the greatest things about Michele’s 365 Yoga Course is I can join a class any day of the week, drop in at any time during the class and leave at a time that works for me and my schedule, from anywhere I am.
