I love how all the vegetables in my salads and dishes just sparkle with bright, rich colors. The minute I sprinkle Olive Oil on the veggies, they just seem to come alive. And I know that once I eat them I will come alive with nutrition and healthy cell rejuvenation!!!!

So, this morning I started with a brisk hour-long walk in the neighborhood. It was a great feeling after the food I ate last night.. I’m still kinda getting straight from the Hibachi Meal.!!!

Then we let Mike’s son take a ride on Mike’s bike around the neighborhood, while Mike and I took a walk down to the clubhouse. There, we waited for his other kids to come over to have lunch.

We decided to grill some beef burgers, turkey burgers, and I made the token vegetable dishes. First on got crackin with the Grilled Vegetables:

Ingredients: Red & Yellow Bell Peppers

Zucchini

Asparagus

Mushrooms

Olive Oil

Dried Onion Flakes

Paprika

Cumin

Celtic Salt

Directions: I chopped up some zucchini, Bell Peppers Asparagus, and Mushrooms and put them into some Tin Foil paper and sprinkled some Olive Oil and Seasoning on the pile of vegetables and handed it off to Mike to put on the Grill. He kept it on the Grill shelf for about 15 minutes.

Then I chopped up Vegetables for another Fresh Vegetable Salad I’m saving for either tomorrow of later today!!

I also made a Cucumber & Tomato Salad and brought out all the stuff to eat on the patio. Before the meal, we were all munching on Hummus and Stacey’s Chips.

Now, we’re relaxing and watching some TV…. I think I may have had too much Hummus and Chips.  But, hopefully my afternoon juice will help wash things down!!!

Speaking of juicing…. I ran out of Carrots yesterday and made juice with Asparagus, Celery and Apples. It was really good… it tasted different but good!!!

Another lunch of Fresh Vegetable Salad and Asha Reshteh and then up to Jacksonville to pick up Mike’s son.

But before we hit the airport, we went to have dinner with Mike’s other son at Wasabi a Japanese Steakhouse. We had met up with him several weeks ago at the same restaurant.

Vegetable Hibache

And we had the same thing… Filet and Shrimp Hibache…. I of course had the vegetables, Zucchini, Squash, Carrots, Onions, and Broccoli. Before hand I asked for a Seaweed Salad and I had cold Sake.  I also asked the chef to make the Rice with no Egg. But I couldn’t say anything about all the butter he used… because there’s a table full of people waiting for him to cook for them.
