t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


Anti-Oxidant Packed Spinach Salad

I don't think any of us can get enough of dark green vegetables and the power punches they pack. (How's that for alliteration?) Blackberries are an excellent source of vitamins and walnuts are full of the fats our bodies love...not the kind which tends to accumulate around the middle...uck!

Anti-oxidant Packed Spinach Salad

Wild greens
Feta Cheese
Maple-candied Walnuts
Granny Smith Apple
Broccoli Florets
Balsamic Vinegar

Slice apple and broccoli into bite size pieces. Toss all ingredients together and enjoy as a meal or a complement to any meal.

Because the nuts and cheese add fat and calories, I just put plain balsamic vinegar on this salad and it is delicious. But if it is too strong just use any balsamic based dressing.
