Time To Take Control

Learning this week that once again we had to step back from live workouts back to virtual, I will admit I was sad and frustrated. But in life we always have theĀ  opprotunity to learn and grow in each situation. So, this time around I am taking control and creating an online platform for us to connect, share amd workout. I am really excited and hope you will join me. More details to come.

Italian Tuna Salad

This Italian Tuna Salad comes together really quick with some staples you most likely have on hand. Refreshing, light, perfect lunch or dinner for a warm summer day.

Salad:

50/50 mix (spinach and spring mix) arugula, cherry tomatoes quartered, black olives cut in half, 1 cucumber peeled and diced, optional: favorite Italian dressing (tip-drizzle along sides of the bowl, then mix it in)

Tuna:

1 can of tuna drained, 1 half avocado, 1Tbs Dijon mustard, 1Tbs capers, fresh black pepper. Mash avocado and mix all ingredients together.

Directions: make salad, then make the tuna mix, top the salad with the tuna. Optional: Sprinkle a tsp of Pesto over the top.

For a vegan option: drain, rinse and smash garbanzo beans in place of the tuna and use vegan pesto.

Work It Wednesday

Work it Wednesday! We always have a choice even when surrounded by chaos. We control our thoughts, our reactions and our mental attitude. We may only be able to create ripples but they can spread into waves. What ripples are you making in your life and community?
