Baby Spinach Salad with Apple and Roasted Walnuts

Spinach salad is a lunchtime classic. It looks and tastes great, and gives you lots of vegetable nutrition. Spinach is an excellent source of carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin, important nutrients for maintaining healthy vision.

3 Cups Baby Spinach
1 Hardboiled Egg
1 Medium Apple, Peeled and Sliced
8 Walnut Halves
Pinch of Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Timesaving Tip: You can usually find a bag of washed baby spinach in the grocery store. The leaves are tender and the perfect size for salad.

Spread walnuts on a baking pan and bake at 350° for 4-5 minute, or until lightly browned. Remove walnuts from oven and let cool.
In a bowl or take away container, spread apple and walnuts over spinach. Cut the egg in half and place on top. Season with salt and black pepper. The dressing can wait until you are ready to eat so the salad stays crisp. Serves One.

Look at the success our readers have experienced from
The Fat Resistance Diet:

1) I have lost 30 plus pounds since starting The Fat Resistance Diet.
I feel and look great. My husband, who has also lost 30 pounds,
and I follow the meal plans together. I have shared it with many of my friends. It works for us!”  - Joan Pillsbury

2) Dr. Galland's book was recommended to me by a friend and I decided to give it a try because I was at my wits end with all the diets out there. I had tried Weight Watchers, South Beach...etc, and always lost a few pounds but gained them back and then some.

After following Dr. Galland's diet for 10 days, I had lost 11 pounds. My skin actually felt smoother and my energy levels went sky high! 2 months later I am down 20 pounds and have no intention of stopping.

The recipes are easy, the foods are delicious and my cravings for refined sugar and flour are completely gone. I now look forward to snacking on fresh fruits and vegetables and I can even go out to restaurants and choose healthy, delicious foods. I don't look at it as a diet any more, I look at it as a lifestyle change. This will be the last diet book you will ever buy. Trust me, if I could do it, anyone can!

3) This is the lifestyle change I have been searching for that gives me delicious food to eat while enabling me to lose weight that I have been carrying and unable to lose for years. Six weeks into Stage One (I haven't felt the need to move on to Stage Two), and I've lost 21 lbs. and feel great!

I have consistently lost 3-1/2 lbs. a week, and it's not the false water-loss weight loss that diets like Atkins give you. The recipes are truly delicious and after the first two weeks of getting used to shopping and preparing the food, it gets much easier.

Here's the unbelievable part....In the past 6 weeks, not only have I not eaten ANY bread or processed sugar (and I have NEVER been able to do that before), but one of the reasons I started this lifestyle was because my blood pressure had started to rise and was over 135/90 before I started. Four weeks into the diet, it is now 114/75!! I couldn't be happier, and I encourage anyone who despairs of ever finding a food plan that enables them to eat well and healthily to give this one a try. Happy eating!

4) I have been overweight my entire adult life (I just turned 50); I uppose I'm Dr. Galland's poster child for "the weight goes on and never comes off, no matter what you do." I have teadfastly refused to "go on a diet" - I don't want some temporary program that I do or a while and quit, I need a way to change my lifestyle, and this book is showing me the way to do exactly that. I lost 30 lbs. in the first month alone (and 45 in two months); I'm looking for a total loss of over 100 lbs., and for the first time in my life, I actually have hope that it will happen.

Without getting too deep into technical detail, the diet amounts to a kind of biochemical healing from the effects of years of bad eating habits. I have more energy, my general mood is better, even my fingernails are healthier. My doctor is getting ready to take me off blood-pressure and cholesterol medications. The beauty of it is that I'm not walking around hungry all the time. In fact, I had to ask my wife to make some of the salads a little smaller because they left me feeling stuffed. The recipes are, for the most part, delicious, and we're already finding some creative ways to adapt the principles in ways we prefer.

The three-stage approach is helpful - a brief, fairly radical Stage 1 to "flush out the system" and retrain the taste buds, as well as get some quick early results to boost morale. Stage 2 is geared to more moderate, sustainable weight loss (adding in more grains and more variety than Stage 1), and Stage 3 is for long-term lifestyle maintenance. We were so encouraged that we did Stage 1 twice through before moving into Stage 2. The thing I like best is that this shows me a way that I can live the  rest of my life - true principles that really work, that I can simply live by and not worry about.

A brief postscript (October 2006) - I have now been eating this way for eight+ months, and I am down 90 lb. from when I began. I am off all my blood-pressure and cholesterol medications; my BP is 110/60 (was 140/90), my cholesterol is 150 (was 230), my rest pulse is 54 (was 78).  This stuff really works!
