Fresh Fruit And Veggie Yogurt Salad

FRUIT AND VEGGIE SAVORY YOGURT 2

FRESH FRUIT AND VEGGIE YOGURT SALAD

Fresh corn with pineapple? Fresh apple with English cucumber? Kalamata olive and fresh basil? All marinated in dairy free yogurt with smoked paprika, coriander and brown sugar? Toss in some Himalayan salt? Super natural juice rush? That’s what I ate for breakfast for a week. I couldn’t stop myself. You’ll probably think it’s not that great, but for whatever reason I finished every last morsel and drop. Would I make it again? If I want to feel as good as I felt all this week, probably yes.

Makes about 8 cups

Posted in BREAKFAST, FAT-FREE FRIDAY, HOW I'M DOING

IT’S TIME…

It’s time to get serious. Not that I haven’t been serious in my flight around the globe feeling out the terrain of weight gain and what causes it, besides over-eating. It’s just that I haven’t been serious about me actually losing the excess weight on my bones. I could have just eaten plain steamed veggies a few nuts and a few fresh fruits everyday and that would have done it. But people aren’t prepared to make that taste bud and palate sacrifice, and neither am I.

So, what better time to get serious than at breakfast.

4-12-2018 SHAR'S WEIGHT NAKED (almost)

I weighed in at 164 pounds: 7 pounds heavier than my last documented weigh-in on 5 August 2017, which was 157. I’m shooting for the thirties. I’m already there in my mind; I just have to do a little catch up. No lower than 130 no higher than 139. That’s safe and healthy for my frame, muscle fat bone content, activity level, injuries and age. Now find yours. That’s my figure.

It is about the weight once you consider and factor in everything else.

My total body has locked itself into the thirties. That’s my lock-in weight. No changes allowed. It took me a while to find it, but I did. I gained some weight since August 2017. I also gained some muscle and lost some fat. I got stronger despite my serious injuries. So here I am going for the gold of me.

So what’s for breakfast on this FAT-FREE FRIDAY the 13th?

FRUIT SALAD WITH AF FAT-FREE ORANGE MAYO SAUCE 2

Fresh fruit tossed with FAT-FREE AF ORANGE MAYO SAUCE (aka MORNING FRUIT SALAD)

The fruits I chose were:

ruby grapefruit, the whole fruit, not just half, peeled and segment

1 sliced banana

1 red apple, cored and cut into 1/2 inch cubes

FAT-FREE AF ORANGE MAYO fresh grind black pepper

Toss it all together. Plate. Sprinkle with black pepper and eat.

Since this morning fruit salad contained 3 whole fruits, I spaced the consumption over a couple hours while I worked the computer, that way it functioned as breakfast and a mid-morning snack.

Now that’s a fruit salad to be savored!

Spicy Chocolate Cashew Shake plus new breakfast and lunch regime

SPICY CHOCOLATE CASHEW SHAKE

Rarely do I put ice into a smoothie. I don’t like the freeze on my throat and my blender doesn’t do ice well. So a shake it is. And a good one at that. I always did like milk shakes, till McDonald’s changed the landscape with their impossible to draw through a straw shakes that were more like soft-serve ice-cream in a drinking cup. How dare they!!

New breakfast and lunch regimen: After drinking a 12 oz. glass of filtered water taken with a capsule of red cayenne pepper for pain control upon rising (I think the capsaicin is helping to a degree so I keep on it) I make a milkshake. Today it is spicy so I’m thinking I’ll stick with this version for a period of time till it bores me, while subbing in various plant milks for variety. Give it a try; you might like it too.

Makes 2 servings
