Health Kick is Back On

After eating like total crap the past week, my husband and I are back on a healthy kick. I think my husband lived off of fried food last week while in Biloxi and I hardly had time to eat. I went to the grocery store after work today and stocked up on fruit and vegetables.

Tonight I made salmon that I seasoned with a McCormick no salt lemon and pepper seasoning. I then sauteed it in a pan with a little olive oil over medium-high heat for about 4 minutes per side.

My side salad consisted of a spinach/romaine combination, blue cheese crumbles, tomato, craisans and a little balsamic vinaigrette. Toasted pecans or walnuts would make a great addition.

For dessert I think I'll make a fruit smoothie. I have been really into these lately and have tried a few different combinations. My favorite so far is to take about 1 cup frozen strawberries, 1 banana, 3 spoonfuls of vanilla yogurt, a little skim milk - maybe 1/2 cup, and a teaspoon of honey. Place in a blender and let 'er rip until desired consistency. No need for ice since the strawberries are frozen. The honey adds a little sweetness without having to use sugar. Sooo good. Great for breakfast or dessert.

And trust me, this is healthier than running to a smoothie joint. A lot of those smoothies are actually very high in calories, sugar and sometimes fat. I'll let you know of any other promising combinations I develop, and if you have any favorites, please feel free to share in the comments section.
