I did lunges...that's gotta count for something.

Starting the new year is always a good excuse to get healthier and/or work out more. Theoretically, anyway. I actually used the excuse that the gym would be too crowded with resolutioners for me to go this evening. Sad, but true.

So, with my Cooking Light cookbook (a gift from the Parallel) to give me ideas, I'm getting back on track this week. Baby steps. Gym tomorrow...I swear. Also tomorrow...Veggie Pizza. I'm hoping it'll be as colorful as tonight's dinner. With green beans and baked sweet potato fries, we had vitamins A, C & K-plus up to 10g fiber-all in one tasty little number.

Orange Salmon
Two 6oz salmon fillets
1.5 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp salt
large pinch pepper
zest from one orange
juice from the orange
Olive oil spray for grill

Mix together the spices (sugar through pepper) and the orange rind (it should smell and look yummy).

Rub onto salmon. Pour half of the juice over fish. Grill for about 6 minutes a side or until it flakes easily. Pour remaining juice over cooked fish, serve immediately.
Per fillet, about 300 cals, 6 carbs, .5g fiber, 36g protein

  1. 1. That sounds really good.
    2. LOL at the gym excuse. I walked by my building's gym (has windows to the street) and actually said out loud "Posers!" to all the never-before-seen faces in there. Then I went up to my place and did no exercise whatsoever. Oh well.
