Homemade Jalapeno Pizza

What’s not to love about Pizza. I could live on pizza if I could. It is seriously one of my most favorite food. Unfortunately, it’s not one of the healthiest food. With all the dough and cheese and everything else that makes up a delicious pizza, it is definitely not something that should regularly be part of a healthy lifestyle. I have made it my personal mission to try to find healthy alternatives to food that I love so I can still indulge in them without feeling guilty about it and I am happy to inform you that I have managed to come up with a healthier version of Pizza and more importantly, it is still delicious.

Kale and Pecan Salad

As I continue on my quest to make everyone that’s reading this article a Kale- lover, I am very excited to share a fourth Kale recipe with you. I hope you have all tried the last three recipes and loved them as much as I do. Kale is so good for us that by not trying it and incorporating it into your diet, you are truly missing out on some really bad-ass nutritional value. I also share with you the perfect salad dressing that goes with each salad recipe and complements it nicely.

Today’s recipe is a Kale and Pecan Salad. I used Pecan pieces for an extra nutty crunch. Pecans are a healthy nut, they are a good source of magnesium, zinc and iron and are also full of antioxidants, contribute to heart health and for us ladies pecans allegedly reduces symptoms of PMS so grab a handful the next time that time of the month rears its ugly head.

Yes this recipe includes Avocado even though the salad dressing has Avocado in it but I love Avocado and in my opinion there’s no such thing as too much but you can definitely omit it in the salad if you’re not as obsessed as I am.

Cilantro, Jalapeno and Avocado Salad Dressing

Well here we are, the last week in April. Time flies doesn’t it? It’ll be Christmas before we know it. I hope you have tried out and liked the recipes I have shared with you this month. The last three and the one I will be sharing today are my favorite salad dressings so it was a pleasure to share them with you. Three out of the four recipes have been creamy dressings and this is because I love creamy salad dressings. For a while, before I started making my own, I would only use oil and vinegar to dress my salads because I was scared of the calories in the creamy dressings and all the other dressings for that matter and they always has some ingredient or the other that I didn’t want to include with my meal.

The salad dressing for this week is a spicy one but you can omit the jalapeno altogether and either substitute black pepper or not use any pepper at all. You know me and hot food so I always manage to sneak pepper in where possible. You can also use just half of one jalapeno if you want to have a bit of the jalapeno taste.
