Sunday Afternoon.

Hello everyone! I’m recovering from a little cold, which sucks, but you gotta keep on truckin’ 🙂 Yesterday I watched the Pacquiao vs. Marquez fight (so sad Manny lost, but that knockout was intense lol). My younger cousin decided to google “hashtags” about Pacquiao and about an hour later (maybe even less) there were 48,000 memes and such comical things about the knockout. I’ve got to admit, some of them were pretty clever.

Anyhoo, I hope everyone is safe, healthy, & doing well! I know it’s the holidays and it’s hard to stick with working out and eating healthy (which is still kinda hard for me too!), but fit in a little daily activity like walking your dog, dancing like a maniac for 5 minutes (alone of course), or cleaning the house (desperate times call for desperate measures lol). Remember, “A healthy body leads to a healthy mind” 🙂

Lastly, I’m gunna leave you all with this awesome pasta sauce recipe that I happened to stumble upon: Creamy Avocado Pasta

I made this last night, and it was so delicious! I love avocado and this was such a great pasta sauce, it was creamy, zesty, and just flavorful. I used regular thin spaghetti, and for the amazing piece of salmon there, I heated up some extra virgin olive oil in a pan, placed the thawed filet of salmon in, seasoned it with a little garlic salt, lemon, and pepper. After its halfway cooked, I like to add fresh minced garlic (I don’t add it in the beginning because it ends up being super burned when the salmon is finished). I let the salmon sit with the fresh garlic so that all the flavors are absorbed (Mmm, I’m getting hungry just typing this lol). For additional flavor, you can make a tartar sauce or (what I personally love & prefer) caramelized onions (you can follow these steps: caramelized onions) I also like to add a little soy sauce and garlic to the onions for more flavor. Enjoy with a nice glass of wine & bon appétit!

I hope you all enjoy this awesome recipe! Stay safe & have a great day, Cheers!

phew!

Hello everyone! So it’s been a long week already! My computer charger broke (which explains my lack of updating), so luckily a friend let me borrow his for a little. I ordered a new one in the mail, and hopefully I get it by the end of today 🙂

My workout schedule hasn’t been quite what I’d like it to be, but since it’s finals this week and next.. I think I can slide with doing lighter workouts (so I don’t exhaust myself!) I’ve been extremely tired due to my lack of sleep and unawareness of the foods I’ve been grabbing on my spare time. But today is a good day so far because I started it off with quick workout & a delicious mixed berry/pomegranate smoothie.. I’m feeling extra energetic 🙂 

Anyhoo, my laptop is about to die 😦 but I hope everything is going well for all of you & that your day is amazing! Cheers!
