Tuesday Lunch
Green Beans & Vegetable Salad

I went to the beginners Pilates class this morning… and felt it wasn’t challenging enough. So I had a talk with the instructor to find my best fit. She suggested the intermediate class, which I did on Monday. That would be the best, based on how my back is feeling.

Today I realized I can bend down to my ankles without any pain…. yeah!!! But there’s still some throbbing going on and it bothers me. I really need to get an adjustment. It’s been months.

So anyway, when I got home I took my shower and decided to make something for lunch. I looked in the refrigerator and realized there were some foods in there that needed to be used before they went bad.

Like the Green Beans we bought at Costco several weeks ago. These Green Beans are a great way to get your greens for the day… even though they’re being blanched. And the recipe and prep time is less than 5 minutes. Sooo Good!

Green Bean Mix:

Ingredients:

1/2lb of Green Beans

2Tbls Olive Oil

1/4Tbls Garlic Powder

1/4Tbs Paprika

Handful of Almonds

Sea Salt

Directions:

Wash and cut the ends and blanched Green Beans in boiling water.  Then let it drain and mix with a nice Oil Dressing. Then chop up some Almonds and mixed them in too.

While the Green Beans were blanching, I cut up some Vegetables to make another Vegetable Salad, this time with an Oil & Vinegar Dressing. I love these Vegetable Salads I create with Veggies lying around. I think I like them so much because of two reasons. One it’s really good, and two it reminds me of my close friend Robin. She first made me a Vegetable Salad like this and I guess since I haven’t seen her in a while it makes me smile.

Vegetable Salad:

Ingredients:

1Tomato

1 Red Bell Pepper

4 Small Cucumbers

1Cup of Sweet Peas

1 Avocado

Oil & Vinegar Dressing:

2Tbls. Olive Oil

2Tbls. White Wine Vinegar

1/4Tbls. Paprika

4Tbls. Dried Onion Flakes

Sea Salt

Directions:

Chopped up Red Bell Pepper, Tomato, Small Cucumbers, Avocado, and remove Sweet Peas from shell. Mix with Oil & Vinegar Dressing.

In between, I drank a glass of Vedge Juice, snacked on some Almonds and also devoured a Dove Bar. I only ate the Dove Bar because I saw Mike eating one in front of me, and I had to have one. 😦

Later in the afternoon, I felt a little artistic and started to redecorate the living room. this little project put Mike on edge and left me little time to make dinner for us. So, Mike and his son had left over Kabobs, and I ate my left over Green Beans and Vegetable Salad.

Cucumber Delight

It was so nice to get up off the bed to make lunch…my back is still in pain, but I had to use the foods in the refrigerator.

I had the Lettuce, Green Beans, and Cucumbers that needed to be used or else!!!!

But first, Mike’s son was showing off his latest Christmas gift D.J. Hero… and after he figured out how to play it he let me play a game. I’ve always wanted to try the Guitar Hero. And since the same people make these games, I got my chance, and it was fun. A little crazy, but I guess that’s how it works. It challenges you to be very hand eye coordinated.!

I was really hungry, so before anything, I found the Berries and had some Blueberries and Raspberries.

Afterwards, I headed to the kitchen to look for the Green Beans. I blanched half of the bag and mixed it with Olive Oil, Paprika, Garlic Powder. I was going to cut some Almonds and sprinkle them on top… but didn’t get the chance.
Then I cut into the Cucumbers and scooped out the middle and made my Cucumber Delight. And realized, the Green Mix is getting old so I made another Green Garden Salad.

Green Beans:

1Tsp Olive Oil
Pinch of Paprika
Pinch of Garlic Powder

Cucumber Delight:
2 Cucumbers
1Cup Carrots
1Cup Celery
1/2Cup Sweet Peas
1Tbls Olive Oil
2Tbls Dill Weed
Salt

Green Garden Salad:
Baby Greens
Spinach
1 Orange Bell Pepper
1 Avocado
3 Green Onions
2 Carrots
2 Celery
1 Tomato
5 Mushrooms

I’ve been using a store bought Raspberry & Vinegar Dressing from Ken’s.
Now it’s back on the bed with the heating pad… my back is throbbing:(
