Who says we have to suffer...to live a healthy happy vibrant life?

Red wine and dark chocolate... might seem decadent...but these guilty pleasures also might help us live longer...and healthier lives. Red wine and dark chocolate definitely improve an evening..but they also contain resveratrol..which lowers blood sugar. Red wine is a great source of catechins..which boost protective HDL cholesterol. Green tea? Protects your brain..helps you live longer..and soothes your spirit.

Food for Thought, the blog, is about living the good life...a life we create with our thoughts and our choices...and having fun the whole while!

I say lets make the thoughts good ones..and let the choices be healthy...exciting...and delicious! Bon Appetit!

What's Cooking?

Tuna Salad with Olives and Artichokes and Cranberries

  • 12 Ounces Chunk Light Tuna, flaked
  • 8 oz chopped canned artichoke hearts
  • 1/2 cup chopped black olives
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh oregano

Combine tuna, artichokes, olives, mayonnaise, lemon juice, lemon zest and oregano in a medium bowl.

Hint: I use chunk light tuna instead of white tuna because it comes from smaller fish and has significantly less mercury.
Red grapes cut in half are really good in this salad too. If you are trying to lighten up..serve it on lettuce leaves rather than slices bread.
