Savory Breakfast

That's right Flatbread and Pancake Mix transformed into a delicous breakfast event.  I added flax seeds and garlic parsley seasoning, heated up last nights left over vegetable melody. I used a raspberry vingerette dressing. It was so delectible that I had to capture it with my phone camera.

Breakfast on the day the read 200.0

I washed it down with some Xtra with Aloe Gold. Yummy in the tummy. I need to find a reward for a poundage milestone. Miki says a new flipper isn't enough. Maybe I look for three new kitchen utensils.
Have a great week's end; health and happiness surround all.

Flowers of My Life

Hi, Sunday's # 202lbs and 40 inches around the belly button.  That's 21.5 lbs and twenty some odd years of weight gone and 7 years off the middle. I really want to say a  huge, enormous "Thank you, my dear friend Marni Good!" for sharing a mini bottle of Xtra last year. Miki and my lives are about real positive changes since we found Univera.

Mimosa Flower, Teresa's Yard,  Portland, August 2011

Sometimes I need a little motivation to step away for the computer.Gratitude and photos of flowers out of the archive to lift the spirit.  Last week was pretty demanding physically as an entrepreneur with several streams of income it can be challenging. Looking forward to the day when I will be a Univera full time Associate. I love sharing and helping others.

Not Your Mother's Cola.

Good day its an excellent day to celebrate being in love with your life. Last week ended with 3"gone and a new weigh of 206 lbs, and busier then a bee hanging out at Longwood Gardens. A little something for you Easties, love you. There's a lot of mental processing that goes along with changing how one views food. But alas that's a song for another day.
Let's talk Peach Mango Drink for breakfast, I added an ounce of Aloe Gold, down right yummy! The Prime is in the picture as an added element. Funny while editing the photo guess who hadn't taken any yet today and its all of 7:11 in the morning. Got that out of the way. It's time to walk, hop gently, stand and talk to everyone how live is filled with vitality.

Broccoli, Zuchini, Celery Lettuce Wrap

      Ice Cycle                                              Blue Berry Ice

Lunch is over but it was yummy, delicious.
Broccoli, Zucchini, Celery Wrap
Here's the how, Chop 3 garlic cloves and 2 green onions, saute in olive oil, find the paprika and some a half teaspoon to the oil. Don't burnt them it is bad for you and steals the flavor away. While this is going on cut up two and half cups of broccoli, the zucchini I used a cup and and some celery. Sorry the order is backwards to how you are going to use it, start with the celery while you slaving away with the other vegetables and the celery. The zucchini goes in next, a little more paprika if you please. I like to add a sprinkle of garlic powder. Push this over to one half of your 12 inch non stick frying pan place the broccoli on the other half and 2oz of water to the broccoli and cover. I steam-saute the broccoli until al dente. I washed and prepared the lettuce set aside. I then mix it all together saute a briefly. Have your half of lemon standing by squeeze that over your vegetables if you want  salt be stingy.  The paprika just needs a hint to bring out its flavor. I served this on lettuce wraps. I munched through four or five of them before I could take a break to grab the photo.. I could have shared the last one but I ate it. This may have taken me longer to write the it did to prepare.

Serenity Snow Day

In a blog a hundred years ago, I have a painting or photo of a flower with the title of Serenity. I was feeling pretty serene as I finished up yoga in the office this morning then I decided to snap a photo of my space. The conclusion ia an enormous amount of peace can be found in so much chaos.  Have a great day surround yourselves in the peace, celebrate your loves with others and have a some robust jazziness fun.

 209 lbs, this morning.  What's interesting is that I've only done cardio for 20 mins in the last week in a half and no weight lifting.  My rewad for the 210 lbs milestone is a new yoga mat.

Breakfast of Delight

Hi, yep two days in a row, well its snowing here. I'll probably chase some snow flakes outside in a bit. Before lunch here something deletable for breakfast. I grabbed this recipe idea of the Matol Diet Facebook page, thank you.!/UniveraHealthyWeight 

Coco Nutmeg Pancakes (3)
Put the Pancakes in a bowl a 1/4 of teaspoon of unsweetened chocolate, I think if you put in too much it will get messy. I like nutmeg so a good dash of it. I use a whisk to mix and add in the water, tried two ounces it all just clumped up inside added almost two more. So it let go of the death grip on the whisk and could be spatula out into three clumps. I was a little concerned that they wouldn't dry when they went on the non stick griddle. They bubbled up spread out it was pretty interesting to watch.  After a couple of minutes, they were loose but able to flip'm. They took about the same amount of time on that side.  Delicious light crepe with all the benefits of protein, no sugar and O to little carbs. I may have added some, calories with the chocolate but darn few.

Snow not a lot. But, had to share a little with some of my dear family who is visiting Costa Rica this week. See what you are missing? Washington not only does it rain a lot when you not here but occasionally we get snow.

Elegant Dining Experience

Here's a Matol Flatbread, I like to spice it up for Miki.  This one has a good teaspoon of  curry, about a half teaspoon of pepper and garlic salt with a pinch of flax seeds thrown in.  This went along with salad.

Her salad was pretty standard fare, today it included a half of avocado and tomato.  She likes to keep it pretty simple

Miki's Spinach Salad. It's okay but a little tiny for my taste

This one has my name on it.  A cup of  Brussels sprouts cut in half steamed, then some olive oil drizzled on with curry and garlic seasoning and cup of mixed chop celery, califlower and baby bak choi sauteed beside them sprouts and combined together with a touch of lemon covered to stay warm.  It needed a bed of baby Arugula for a base, veggies with a  6oz can of tuna with some sugar free thousand island dressing

That's what we call an elegant dining experience.

Matol Omlet and Salad

I'm not sure if the yoga or these photos of the Matol Cheddar Cheese and Fine Herb Omlet made me consider putting a little fuel in the tank. It is really yummy. The omlet was has green onions mixed in, alpha sprouts put on top and wrap in. We're out  of sprouts for now.

Here's a little salad from earlier in the week. The weight is coming off this morning number was from late 90s, wahoo !

It's Really Close.

I realize that goals take focus, work and the one has to believe that it is possible. This morning I stepped on the scale and it 214.5 lbs.It seems better to believe the goal is really close. My determination to loose 30lbs is becoming a reality only 21lbs to go, it is really close. The Univera products and Matol Vibrant U Plan  are helping me greatly.
Here's a mountain, one climbs it one step at time but believing you are close to the top helps. Having a wife who is positive (Miki) and friends and family who surround you is pretty sweet, Thanks.
