With all the driving and family meetings it was very hard to get steps in daily. Plus, I had the unfortunate accident of pulling my back out just before I left for home. This made for a long ride and also caused me to be laid up for the next day. I have since recovered but the lack of moving and being out of my normal routine did not play well into my weight-loss journey.
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.
Cucumber, Tomato, Avocado Salad
1 lb. Roma tomatoes chopped

Mix all together and before serving put 1 tsp sea salt and 1/8 tsp pepper.
