DOWN 6 pounds!!!

Really?? Can it be true??
Down 6 POUNDS!!!
Yup.  It's true. I stepped on the scale this morning to discover I'm down 6 pounds.  I stepped on the scale 3 times to make sure it was true.  Down 6 pounds.  226.  I'll take it.

I stopped yesterday at Truckee Meadow Herbs and picked up GSE (Grapefruit Seed Extract).  We'll start taking it once a day and with in 2 weeks be taking it twice a day.  GSE helps ridding the body of candida.  It's a great anti-fungal. 


Here's a picture of our daily Super Green drink.

After a week of drinking it daily I can tell you that it's not the best tasting drink in the world.  Think of the flavor of algae meets grass off a lawnmower blade. My friend Nancy said that she adds a drop of peppermint oil to hers.  

But here's the deal.  I LOVE how I feel after I drink it.  It's a clean feeling.  

It gives me energy for hours.  

Today's Recipe

Baked salmon over brown rice pasta with goat yogurt sauce

Not the prettiest picture but it was a great meal!

1.  In a baking dish put salmon & add some lemon juice & dill.

Bake until done.

2.  Make brown rice pasta according to package directions.

3.  Goat yogurt sauce:
In a mini food processor:
1/4 peeled cucumber
salt & pepper to taste
1-2 garlic cloves
1/2 tsp dill 
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp coriander
tiny pinch of cayenne pepper
2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 c goat yogurt

Blend until smooth.

Pour over cooked pasta & let sit in pasta pan for a minute or 2 so that the sauce melds with the pasta.

Put in bowl & top with salmon.
