Spring Greens with Smoked Lox is my delightful twist on the traditional Lox and Bagels…but served as a salad. Yes, I love lox and bagels on occasion, but not now — now it’s all about the New Healthy! So here’s a healthier version without all the fattening stuff! Honestly, I didn’t miss the cream cheese. LOL!
Who are you and want do you want out of your life? I ask myself this question every morning which keeps me focused on my goals and aspirations. At the moment, I’m listening to Beyonce’s new album and am mesmerized by her videos. Wow! Just when I thought she had nothing else to tantalize the world with she drops it like it’s hot! Blazing hot! Another woman’s anthem of powerful independence and sexuality with no excuses. Brings me back to the saying “I can bring home the bacon and fry it up in the pan!” Yeap! If we want it all, then damn right, we deserve to have it all! But on our own personal terms! So…What are your terms?
My terms include being happy, healthy, successful, defying age and having lots of fun doing it all! And most important, not walking in anyone else’s footsteps!
Welcome to the New Healthy! Being healthy mind, body and soul!
