Better late than never eh?

Ok so in anticipation of having (getting) to don a bikini in about T minus 10 weeks or so I thought I'd get down to business of trimming the extra layer the summer patio season was so helpful with. Seeing as how Australia is enjoying summer at the moment, I will not be needing the extra warmth and so with that in mind I have decided to try to eat more healthily. (Is that a word?) My first challenge: Incorporate more veggies into my diet which is currently mostly dairy and carbs. So here was my first attempt. Baked salmon on a bed of sauteed eggplant, shallots, zucchini and mushrooms served over a bed of steamed kale and collard greens. It was mostly delish except for the greens which were very bitter. Not a bad start if I do say so myself!


  1. I like a little garlic and lemon juice to cut the bitterness of the greens---just sautee the garlic in olive oil before adding the chopped greens, then sprinkle the lemon juice at the very end.

    Alternatively this is where turkey bacon comes in handy.

    P.S. Tag! See my blog for details...

  2. Good idea! I will give the garlic/ lemon juice idea a try. Thanks for the tag! I am at work right now so I will write my 7 things tonight.
