Do the Lifestyle Diet Reset Day #6 –
Good news. I felt like stepping on the scale yesterday, and I lost four pounds! Remember, don’t weigh yourself every day. That can be self-defeating. Do it once or twice per week.
Sometimes, you have to motivate yourself to take a walk. It feels like a waste of time, but the recharge is important to reset your brain. Get away from the news and the stress and just the overall BS. And, if you wear a mask while you are walking, I will come find you! Don’t tempt me!
People think this way of eating is too fruit-heavy. Well, let me tell you, no one wants a kale and spinach shake after the indulgent holiday season. It’s just not realistic. Don’t worry, we are slowly adding veggies and more protein back into the diet. But sometimes, your body needs a break. These suggestions are all easy on your system.
Yesterday, I found an unopened box of French macarons. I tried one since they are pretty low in calories, and it was too sweet! When you eat fruit and naturally sweetened foods, regular sugar is almost overwhelming. The same is true for all the sodium in processed foods. This means we are making progress!

baked wild-caught pistachio-crusted salmon
Method – fish
Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Add pistachios to food processor and pulse until they are well-broken up. Brush salmon with Dijon. Put the pistachios on a plate and dip the Dijon part of each filet in the pistachios. Place on a baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes to desired doneness. (I like mine medium.)
quinoa blend ( I like the Seeds of Change packets, because they are organic, wholesome and quick.)

If you are in the mood, pair with this perfect organic, biodynamic Chardonnay
1 can of pears (no sugar added) drained
2 TB of Nocciolata organic cocoa hazelnut spread
2 spoons of living probiotic

I am currently reading Bourdain: The Definitive Oral Biography.
My thoughtful son bought it for me as a Christmas present.
Right now, I’m reserving comment on it. I have a few clips about Bourdain here on the site.
Until next time, cheers! Heads up. We are making progress!
