Ode to the Zing

With all of the detoxing going on around here I look forward just about anything with flavor these days. I am allowed to add some balsamic to my copious amounts of raw vegetables and I have been opting for just a little bit Zing!
Get this...we had a holiday party a while back and a couple of our guests reduce their own Balsamic and gave us a bottle as a holiday gift. Combined with a little olive oil, balsamic makes a lovely dressing, but after investing time in reducing it slowly, everything changes. The result pours like a thick velvety syrup and pairs beautifully with meats, salads, and even ice cream! Zing possesses many the qualities of the finest aged balsamic I've ever tried and frankly, has saved me from having a detox melt down!

Going very well! I feel a ton better than last week. We are able to relax the rules a little now, but still no refined carbs at all and no carbs of any kind at dinner. That being said we are totally going to cheat tonight because we are having a guest...black bean soup and a southwestern Monte Cristo...when you cheat you should cheat!!
