Need consumer assistance aisle 9Share a breakfast photo this week! My Breakfast today - wheat-corn tortilla, scrambled egg with some sauteed Kale (2 Tbsp per 1 egg), black beans, Spinach leaves and 1 Turkey bacon. Had a great snack after my nature walk: fresh pineapple, blueberries and walnuts 😋😋Got me long nature walk in and saw about 20 deer and no humans ðŸ‘ we had a heavy fog this am w drizzle so that discouraged walkers I guess. But I want to show you this historical moment of being ahead of @FIT2FINISH because fame is fleeting - very fleeting when you're racing against her on Fitbit ðŸ¤£ðŸ¤£ðŸ¤£Today's workout is brought to you by the letter C and a bowl of Bone broth, chicken detox soup with mushrooms and garbanzo beanshad lunch, salad with chia seeds, zucchini, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, on 2 cups of mixed greensI used these on our trip last year for quickie meals that had protein. Really yummy but be aware they can be very high on calories. You can find them at Target, often on sale. If you wish to use milk, get the little shelf milks for kids lunches so you don't have to refrigerate them.

journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6562221Okay we had our Rambutan at lunch. The spiny looking out shell is not hard or prickly but soft. It peels off easily. A little harder to get the nut in the middle out (you aren't supposed to eat it). It looked slimy but wasn't, it actually had a great taste - very fruity and pleasant taste to it.
It's a tropical fruit popular in Asia. It's nutritional value lays mostly in Vitamin C and Manganese, and fiber.
ambutan/Very easy salad: diced cucumber with diced cherry tomatoes (I use about a 1 cup to 3 tomatoes), with diced bell pepper, diced red onion. Mix and eat with or without a vinaigrette. I also like a bit of cracked pepper on mine.
You could also serve it with just a squeeze of lemon and chopped mint leaves too for added flavor.Just had a huge salad and with my morning smoothie hit my 5 freggie target for the day. Grilled Salmon (leftover) over spring mix greens, with cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, bell pepper, carrots, and mushrooms. I did use salad dressing - sorry gang, I just love salad dressing too much! At least it was a vinaigrette Next time you grocery shop show the team your cart! 3 boxes of lettuce mix, bananas, pineapple, tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, broccoli sprouts, celery, blueberries, strawberries, salmon and cod.Snack to go: Tuna Pepper Poppers w cherriesFood prepping today: tuna fish made up for salads, strawberries cleaned and rinsed, now working on a chicken wild rice soup w a bone broth base.One of my favourite veggie products - butternut squash risotto 70 calories for 1/2 c, 4.5 g fat, 2 g protein, 6 g carb, 1 g dietary fiber, 390 mg sodiumLook at these stickers I found on Etsy.
