Right Back At It!

October 8, 2014

I knew I had consumed too many points…calories….food…..beer, all of those, on Monday, so I wanted to have a great and successful Tuesday and keep the week on the right track.

I walked EIGHT miles with a friend……

……ate lots of fruits and veggies…..

……drank extra water and stayed focused! I was home all day, and sometimes that can be a challenge, but I did every ounce of laundry that needed to be done, and I cleaned house, keeping myself busy.

At the end of the day, I felt like I had conquered any food demons that were lingering in the back of my mind!

Here are yesterday’s eats!

    Tricia,

    I always love the questions! 🙂

    I do buy it fresh, and I always buy the wild, not farm raised. Watch for it to go on sale. The wild is supposed to be better for you, and I do think that it taste better! My cooking method is really simple. I put a little bit of Olive Oil (I have some flavored Olive Oil’s that are awesome! I have Lemon, Garlic and Butter. The salmon taste great cooked in any of those.) in a skillet, heat it up, and add my salmon. I season it with Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper. I add a little fresh lemon or lime juice if I have a lemon or lime, but it taste great without it too.

    The Sea Salt and the Cracked Black pepper are coarse. Cooking it in a little Olive Oil and using the coarse seasonings, give’s it just a little bit of a crusty outside, and that’s one of my favorite parts of eating it!

    Hope this helps you?

    I’d love to hear about it if it does.

  2. I’m always asking you specifics about your food! What kind of salmon do you use? Is it frozen or fresh and how do you cook it? Your food always looks so yummy and I mine always is so blah!
