A “super-food” snack

Strawberries are high in vitamin C, they are immune system boosting, inflammation reducing, antioxidant filled delicious fruits! Avocado are filled with good fats! They help to maintain a healthy heart, lower cholesterol, control blood pressure, and more! So together they make a very healthy and delicious snack, and as I’ve said before Dr. Oz recommends you eat a half of avocado a day and had a whole segment on the benefits of strawberries, so need I say more? I cut these up and made a quick dressing for them with organic honey, apple cider vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, and a little bit of fresh lemon juice. Yum!

Fish dinner

Fish dinner

Tonight for dinner we had fish because we ate meat on friday and my mother thought we should pretend today was a friday to make up for it. (even though I already ate chicken today) We had tilapia grilled with garlic, parsley, and black pepper with baked sweet potato (or regular potato for my dad who does not want to diet with us or like sweet potatoes). The potatoes were cut almost all the way through and drizzled with olive oil and pepper before being baked. On the side we had some corn and there was also peas but I HATE frozen peas! Yuck the texture is awful, any suggestions on how I can make them better? Anyway, dinner was great! Fish is so good for you and sweet potatoes are a healthy carb to incorporate into your diet! I just would have like green beans and/or a salad rather than just the corn and yucky frozen peas.
