This season is so beautiful – sparkling lights, potluck parties, special concerts, exciting gifts, family time…
…but what about heavy traffic, crowded stores, decorating and wrapping to get done on time, extra cooking…those pressured things are not always quite so beautiful!
At Thropay Health Center, we’re here to help you streamline. Here’s an easy one – gift decisions! How about a gift card for a massage? It’s the perfect gift for Mom or Dad, friend or neighbor, gardener or mail carrier. As they say at Staples – “That was easy!” (Our gift cards may also be applied to chiropractic or nutrition services in our office.)
If you wonder what healthful food you could take to that potluck, here’s a quick and simple way to get vegetable goodness into an attractive and delicious dish that is always enjoyed:
5 small organic zucchini, washed but not peeled
1 small organic onion, diced fine
1 15-oz. can of Trader Joe’s organic tomato sauce (no sugar added)
about 2 tsp. Parsley Patch garlic and herb seasoning
about 2 oz. of grated or shaved raw milk Parmesan cheese (Trader Joe’s)
Slice washed zucchini in half lengthwise. Pour 1 cup of tomato sauce in a 9 x 13 glass baking dish. Spread evenly. Arrange zucchini cut side up, on top of sauce. Sprinkle evenly with diced onion, then with garlic and herb seasoning, to cover each half. Spoon remaining tomato sauce carefully over each half. Sprinkle with the cheese.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes, or until zucchini is tender and cheese is melted. Recipe can be doubled, of course.
This week- breathe deeply, pace yourself, and enjoy the season!
