Shrimp and Avocado Salad

Shrimp and Avocado Salad

This is one of my favorite Summertime meals! It’s quick and easy to make, doesn’t take any heat, and it actually stores well in the refrigerator despite the avocado. My family loves it with Coconut rice. 16oz Frozen Medium Cooked Shrimp, thawed 100 grams (3.5oz) Avocado 1/2 Red Onion 1 Roma Tomato 1 Jalapeño Pepper-Raw, Fresh Cilantro 3 TBSP Fresh Lime Juice 1 tsp Olive oil Slice Shrimp, Avocado, Onion, Tomato, and Jalapeño, into desired size and put in a bowl.

FREE DAY! What is it?

FREE DAY!  What is it?

If you have seen any of my videos, you know that I believe that in order to have long term success in your health and fitness goals, you can’t cut out complete food groups.

In all honesty it’s been a while since I have actually had what I call a free day, 6 months to be exact. In today’s video I will tell you what it is for me and how I do it. Here are a few of the guidelines I have for myself. 1. Free day, is exactly that. 1 Day, not a day and a half, not two days, not a weekend, but 1 day. If it runs over, you can actually do yourself more harm than good. 2. It’s not a […]

A Few of My Favorite Veggies.

A Few of My Favorite Veggies.

Since posting my video the other day where I talked about turning on your fat burning potential by adding more fibrous veggies to you diet, I’ve been asked by several people what I eat, so here’s a few ideas. My favorite right now is Asparagus. I will eat anywhere from 1 to 3 servings in a single meal. In fact yesterday I had 300 grams (10.5oz) for lunch. It was only 60 calories and filled the entire plate. Here’s how I do it: 1. Trim the asparagus by snapping off the ends. 2. Heat a large frying pan coated with non-stick spray over medium-high heat. 3. Add the trimmed asparagus to the pan. Cover it and cook, shaking the pan occasionally, until the asparagus is tender, 5 to 10 minutes. 4. Sprinkle with salt and/or lemon juice or zest to taste. Serve hot or warm. TIPS: Don’t leave the lid […]
