Glad to be home.
Well, I made it through the road trip. I did pretty well with sticking to the plan of healthy eating with very few slips. One slip however involved soda pop. I make it a general policy not to drink it. Reasons being that diet pop has the artificial sweeteners which I know hare harmful to my health and regular pop is not good with all the sugar and empty calories. I will admit though I did slip and have a pop while visiting my “homeland”. My road trip took me back to Michigan where I was born and I could just not resist the good ole Vernors.
I am back on the road to recovery and have increased my walking and commitment to eat healthy. One dish I did make this past week was a wonderful salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, avocado, and cilantro. It was very tasty and I am looking forward to making it again very soon. It will be even better when the vegetables are straight from my garden.
If you are not a fan of cilantro you could skip it but I love it and added a little extra to mine. So enjoy and let me know if you give it try.
