A Taste of Spring

The weather was amazing yesterday! It was almost 60 degrees outside...a little break from the freezing cold winter was exactly what I needed. We even had our windows open for a little bit to get some fresh air in the house! Just loved it!

The warmer weather totally reminded me of spring so my husband and I got the grill out and had hamburgers and sweet potatoes...oh so good! For a treat later on, I made myself a protein shake with a teaspoon of cocoa and a half teaspoon of natural peanut butter. It tasted just like a Reese's Peanut Butter Blizzard...except this was way healthier so you can eat it without all the guilt!

Lovin' the outdoors!

My New Favorite Salad

Hey Everyone....thought I would share my new addiction with you. It's a super simple salad that I've eaten almost every day for the past couple of weeks.

Lots of mixed greens (mostly spinach)
1/2 cup of edamame
1-3 slices of grilled red, yellow or orange peppers
Grilled chicken breast

1/2 tsp olive oil
3/4 tsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp Splenda's so good and so healthy! You get your veggies, protein and good fats. What more could you ask for in a meal?!
