Wow, It's been a week since I posted! Sorry :( Been so busy with work and Christmas Shopping.
The weather here is so amazing lately. Super cold..gets to about -3 at night but really sunny, clear and cold in the day. I love it. We've had so much rain lately, that this is a refreshing change.
So I had a few e mails asking how my adventures went with introducing bread back into my diet. I'm happy to say that it's been great! No problems at all. I think I might want to try a different bread next time though. If anyone has any suggestions, throw them my way!
I went to Costco with my mom on Monday evening and got a HUGE Maranatha Almond Butter (737 gram jar) for $5.99! and a giant tub of Sabra Roasted red pepper Hummus. Yum.
I also a scored a gigantic bag of this
It was only $20 for a Huge bag. My mom also bought me some salmon and a bag of avocados, and I ended up making this
Salmon and Avocado Salad.
1 pound wild Alaska salmon fillets or steaks, poached, grilled or broiled, cooled
1 ripe avocado, peeled and cubed
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons capers
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs, such as dill, basil, parsley, tarragon and/or chives
Sea salt and ground black pepper
Lemon wedges for garnish
Break cooked salmon into chunks in a bowl. Gently toss with remaining ingredients. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Serve with lemon wedges.
So easy and so good.
I was up super early this morning and went for a swim at the pool :)
I then did a bit of yoga when I came home and some weights.
Today is pretty much a chill day. Just relax and watch some movie maybe and FINALLY put up my Christmas Tree!!
I went to the mall with a few friends yesterday and I needed boots in a huge way and ended up buying boots that my friends all hate..Uggs.
Yup, those ones, in that exact color. I know a lot of people dislike them, but I love them. I had a black pair a few years back that I was in love with. So comfortable!
I'm about to make some oatmeal, then dig my Christmas tree out and start decorating!
I leave you with some random pics from this weekend! Enjoy your Sunday! And I promise to update more often! I also have some great reviews to do from some amazing stuff I received in the mail!!
