Count Colors

Hi Ladies,

Don't forget that in your journals for this week I would like for you to count how many colors you are getting in and total that number on the bottom right hand side of the page. Focus on getting in a variety of colors everyday. Eat the rainbow.
Ex. carrots- orange
celery- green
apple- red
total - 3

I love to do enough prep work, so it is easy and already ready, but not so much that my produce is going to go bad faster. I like to put a variety of cut up vegetables in a quart size bag and then each day take some for my smaller zip lock bag to have with my hummus.
I like to add celery, carrots, radish, jicaima, cucumber, daikon radish, and zucchini.

100 calorie pack of hummus from Costco- so good!

Smoked Salmon Scramble
Recipe of the week
I like the combination the the green onions and the smoked salmon for something different.
I was surprised by how many packages of the smoked salmon had added sugar. I only found one that did not. I also check the sodium as well to find the lowest.

I really like my salad shaker from Target to pack my salad in.

I feel so energized juicing in the morning. I also had Greens powder to my juice. Does not look that good, but it tastes great.

I do either one or two green apples, carrots, celery, kale, & spinach. It is so good because the nutrients goes right into your system, so it is not lost in the digestion process.

I got a BBQ!!!! I'm so excited about this. I've been wanting one for a long time.

Dan was at work, so I was a little intimidated BBQing for the first time by myself. I've never used one before since my dad, husband, or brother have always been in charge of the grilling.

I cooked salmon, mahi mahi, zucchini, and asparagus.
It turned out great. I love it! I made a lot to have for the next few days.

Lunch- I feel like I accomplished something. I love trying new things.
I put the salmon and veggies over a salad.

I added some quinoa 1/2 way through, since it was still cooking. I made it with chicken broth to add more flavor.
