So Fresh, so easy, so quick!! No reason no to try! Go to a farmers market with $15. Buy what looks good to you. Take it home and eat it! I mashed these red potatoes with a tablespoon of butter, sprinkle of Garlic, Sazon and adobo while I oven roasted the corn on the cobb for 35 minutes. I made a slice of bacon cut it up and added the green beans. I served it with raw red bell pepper and a small piece of salmon, wild caught. The corn was so sweet you didn’t need to add a thing to it! It was satisfying down to the bones! Try it! The blueberries were outa this world! I eat them in oatmeal everyday! Sometimes twice a day!!

Fresh & Tangy [Bean Salad] revisited

Here’s the Bean salad again. I missed eating it, so I went right out and bought the ingredients for just a few dollars.

It generates about 5 meals. Cheap, Easy, Fresh, Filling, Tasty & Tangy. Here goes…

I chopped ::

A Cucumber

A Tomato


An Apple (squeeze lemon over the apples)

A Red Pepper

Green Onion

White Onion


and Mixed them together with::












A can of White Beans



Italian Seasoning


Strawberry red wine vinegar

Plain Greek Yogurt

* Use whatever Bean you want. I used less celery than the recipe called for b/c I’m not a fan but actually when you chop it tiny it isn’t noticeable. I’ll add more next time. The Apple makes it all worth eating by the way. Try it.

*  YouTube’s TheThirdShift is a great channel and where I got this from.

The truth is making oatmeal takes 7 minutes.

Why not make your own?

Im not going to make a series of oatmeal posts so here’s some that I did last week…..

Some had bananas and Pumpkin spice, Nutmeg & Cinnamon and others had Blueberries, Honey and Cinnamon.

Whatever combo you like, use it.

Sweeten with honey or stevia and add a splash of almond or soy milk.

* Bananas used were Hard & Green, those are the best. Stay away from those soft Bananas.

Funny how your body starts craving very specific things.

Here’s what mine asked for today after a long day of shoveling snow…..

I have added a much needed boost to my cardio lately. Three 30 min runs or two 1hr  1/2 walks a week.

“Low to moderate intensity aerobic exercises that can be sustained for a long time (more than 20 minutes) use some glucose, BUT MORE FAT for fuel.” – Understanding nutrition by: Whitney/Rolfes

So walk on!

I need to see the fruits of my labour with my ab workouts and strength training.

And of course I need to get use out of my Nike Free’s!

And naturally I want to get out in the fresh air as much as possible in this beautiful sunny, breezy, humid weather!!!!

Here’s how we can do this…

So it’s easily accomplished by taking an hour and a half walk in sunny pleasant neighborhoods locally or driving into a neighborhood or suburb I enjoy. Places that have great gardens, huge homes or well landscaped lawns, somewhere shady.

I just park and wander a moderate pace. Sometimes I phone a friend and have a chat while I walk and other times I chat up women I see in their yards, admiring their work and asking for tips!

You can plan your route to your favorite little cafe and have a beverage or lunch or  pack your laptop in your backpack and walk to where there is WIFI and get some work done and walk back home. Easy.

Sometimes I go to the Zoo, it’s free, just park and walk, there’s plenty to keep you walking there for hours, just like the beach another fav of mine. Did I mention the free poor girl pedicure? Walking in the wet sand along the water has you coming home with feet softer than your baby’s bottom.

Well that what I now have. For 2 Weeks, Twice a week I have been riding a stationary bike. Muscles have been developing along the outside of my thigh. Thats right you CAN count. Its been 4 bike sessions and already I am noticing something happening. How happy am I???  I wonder what else is going to happen to me if I continue doing this?  Lets Find out.

I do Know>>

It’s  good for me and my ankle

Which is always a problem since I tore my ligament, low impact.

You can move along at a comfortable speed the entire workout/go for endurance/create hills no intimidation

It’s Cool

Some have fans so as you pedal your fanning yourself/ Keeps me going / dont forget to pedal backwards too!

I am going to begin doing intervals, 30 second bursts at a higher intensity.

My Bike routine is 45 min. twice a week.
