Dont jiggle just giggle ;)

Well this is part 1 of my 8 week challenge... first off my goal is to lose 20 lbs ;) so far
 ( I cheated and sort of started a diet 1 weeks ago) I've lost 2 lbs YAY!!! 20 down and 18 to go... Im hoping that even when the challenge is done I can keep my healthy lifestyle and not gain again... the yo-yo diets tend to like me for some reason jeje... I also started going to the gym yesterday! Its so hard to start up again after not having gone in a while, but im happy i finally took the plunge...

my dieting life :(

So Ive decided to share a little recipe with you guys of what I've been eating for lunch. Im trying to eat less meat and more veggies :) so this is a vegetarian meal jeje

Its a delicious wild salad with sauteed mushrooms and onions, and as a little dessert you can have a little bowl of fruit! Im so sorry i didnt take any pictures but i shall do my best at explaining jejeje

So first off you will need:

some lettuce
1/4 cup of spinach
1/2 sliced roma tomato ( you can use any kind you have, roma's are my faves though jeje)
sliced carrots
diced cucumbers
and any other delicious extras you prefer like radishes, purple lettuce, olives... ect ;)

Toss up all those ingredients and you get a wonderful * and colorful * wild salad.

For the sauteed mushrooms and onions topping you will need:

1/2 cup of chopped mushrooms, (shitake mushrooms are awesome for this)
1/4 cup sliced white onions

In a frying pan you will want to put about a tablespoon of pure olive oil to saute with instead of butter. :) Next add in both the mushrooms and onions, put the heat on medium and let it simmer for about 3 minutes... then add some salt and pepper to taste and continue to saute for 3 minutes on a low temperature... Your going for soft well cooked veggies, Then wallah your finished, just place your veggies on top of your salad and add a light dressing of your choice and enjoy :)

This has become the highlight of my day jejeje :) I dont know why but sauteed onions and mushrooms are sooooo delicious on a salad <3

Well im sure by now your bored of reading my silly recipie jejeje im not the best at writing a recipes down so if you have any questions feel free to ask <3

Well ill be back soon to update on some things about sunny Florida ;) Toodles for now lovey's <3

  1. Sounds delicious, I'll definitely have to try that one! Congrats on the 2 pounds, lifestyle changes usually aren't easy, so know that I'm cheering you on! :)

  2. How awesome for you! And aren't mushrooms and onions great? I love them both! I know a lot of people automatically react to mushrooms with an "EEWW!", but I tend to think they're delicious. ;)

  3. I LOVVVVE mushroom and onions! I used to throw them on a steak, but I dont do that anymore. Now I thrown them in a pan to sautee with other vege's, (kind of everything but the kitchen sink) when the vege's are done I toss in a few tomato wedges, sliced about 1/4" on the bottom, not thin, not to thick, stir, then when put on the dinner plate, shred some fresh Reggalio(SP) Parmesan Cheese, and enjoy.
    I dont know why I am talking food, heck I just ate. It wouldt be fair to tell you what I a having for desert, being that your on a diet. I need to go on one too! Not working, sitting on my rear at home, not to cool when I try to button my jeans!
    The only advice I have for you is DONT WEAR SWEATS! They end up stretching, and then well, so do you :)

  4. Congrats on the 2 lbs!! You're off to a great start :)
    I'll have to try this recipe... I have and love all the ingredients!
    Can't wait to hear more about Florida!

  5. Yayy!! Only 18 to go! You'll be able to do this, no problem! And imagine how great you'll feel when you're done! :D

  6. AWWWWW you all are so amazing! i couldnt do this without you all :) :) :) :) <3
