Well hello! Thanks for all your sweet comments about the new look of my blog. I have to admit, this weekend I would look up my blog just to take a peek!
I had another TV segment on MORE yesterday. Unfortunately, there was a mess up with my clip but I will hopefully have it for you by the next post.
My topic for yesterday was, Is Your Spouse Sabotaging Your Diet? Swanky boy helped me out a bit with ideas for props, and I think we did a great job. Here’s my little set up before going on air.
Any of you dietitian readers out there know that dietitians joke that they are considered more “type a.” Well, that definitely describes me.
I think I improved on this segment, but given the shorter notice and last minute switch of wording, came out the dreaded ‘um” word. Many of you don’t know me in person, but ‘um’ is a commonly used word in my vocabulary.
In the past, I’ve had my segments pretty much memorized but this time went a bit overboard on the ‘um.’ After stressing about how I didn’t do the segment as best I could, I realized that no one’s perfect and I don’t think I did all that bad being shorter notice and only my third segment.
After my segment, working on school, and grocery shopping, I looked at up the clock and realized it was already 5 pm. I bounced the idea of making dinner back and forth. After seeing what goodies we had leftover from Easter, I knew just how to make good use of Tony’s mother’s homemade salsa.
Btw, I know some of you had requested a recipe so I'll make sure to get it for you.
After perusing the grocery store, I thought simple taco salads would be easy and filling. It also may help to cancel all of the candy consumed on Sunday.
Vegetarian Taco Salads (serves 2)
- 1 bag of spinach ( 5 ounces)
- ½ can corn, rinsed
- ½ can black beans, rinsed
- 1 green pepper, diced
- 4 tablespoons salsa
- 2 tablespoons crushed tortilla chips
- 2 tablespoons fat-free Greek yogurt
- 1 avocado, sliced
If you are one that gets bored of salads easily, then this recipe is for you! I love that with salsa and a dollop of Greek yogurt, it doesn’t even need dressing.
