Quick & Easy Cabbage and Broccoli Slaw

We all have busy lives so when I found a way to make dinner a little easier and healthy I was so excited and wanted to share with you.  This easy and healthy slaw can be served with any dish or bring it to your next potluck.

I start off with a bag of cabbage and bag of broccoli slaw


In a medium size bowl add

1 Bag Cabbage 
1 Bag Broccoli slaw

In a small bowl whisk together the following:

1 cup greek yogurt
2-4 garlic cloves minced
1 green onion

2 tablespoons EVO
3 tablespoons Raw Apple Cider Vinegar 
1 lemon
Salt ( to taste )

( Salmon Recipe )







Easy Baked Salmon

The richest, fatty fish like mackerel, bluefish and wild salmon are vital sources of omega-3 fatty acids, nutrients that can support cardiovascular health. The American Heart Association recommends getting at least two servings of fatty fish a week//

Here is an easy oven baked recipe for you.



2 salmon fillets ( 5 o each ) skin removed
pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1-2 garlic cloves
1 lemon
Basil ( a few leaves )

Preheat the oven to 450. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drizzle the cooking fat over the paper and spread with a brush or your fingers to coat the paper.

place the salmon skin-side down on the parchment paper. Season the salmon evenly with the salt, pepper and garlic.

Bake salmon for 12-5 minutes and be sure that it is fully cooked, the thickest part of the fish should not loo raw, wet or feel spongy when you try to flake it. Server with lemon wedges and top with basil.  I served with Healthy Coleslaw

3 Weeks Free Yoga!

I was never a big fan of yoga, mainly because I would go to a class and see others with slim toned bodies. These people could twist and turn in ways I thought were impossible. From time to time, I would take a class and feel great but honestly, I just didn’t feel comfortable doing the pose as a beginner and no real instruction was provided by the class lead. I would only do the two poses I knew well; downward dog and cat/cow. When Beachbody said they were coming out with a 3 week yoga course, I was a bit skeptical and decided to give it a try. I am totally impressed! The program is only 21 days, 30 minutes per day. You start out with a foundation week where you will learn how to hold a pose correctly and it’s great for beginners. So why wouldn’t you want to enhance your performance? This is a great opportunity to add yoga to your training and help prevent injury. Yoga will help improve flexibility, core stabilization and strength while helping with recovery after workouts. And you ca…

Make ahead prepping Tips

Starting prep a little early. Meal plan for the week is complete and starting my prep by cutting up veggies for easy grab and go.
Time saving tips! Cut up onions and bell peppers put in freezer bag and store in your freezer and use them as needed.

Remove Kale from stems and put in airtight bag. Great to use with morning eggs . Juicing or afternoon salads.



Cut celery lengthwise and then in half to make celery sticks store them in a container with some water to keep fresh.. These are great as a snack with almond butter. Don't toss the ends store in bag and use for juice or soup.
