This is Beth showing her Ta Da of Everyday Dishes. She got all the center of it put together. It's so beautiful. Of course, Nedra finished her's years ago. You'll have to ask her to show it to you on her blog because it is lovely and inspiring!

Nedra and Ruth did a little photo shoot with me on our trip and it was so fun. If you're even the tiniest bit like me, you can't stand to have your picture taken! However, they both tag teamed me and started taking pictures so fast I couldn't get all weird about it. Anyway, I added the one Nedra took as my new photo on my blog and then here's one that Ruth took. It's so hard to get a photo that you actually approve of that it feels exciting to have two!!

Almost everyday of my entire life, I get a phone call from a neighbor, friend, client, etc. asking me, "What's for Dinner"? People are always struggling with how to eat well and to feel good and not have to 'think' about it all the time. I personally have changed my diet and repented of all the bread and treats I was eating in the summer and have lost 9 lbs the last 3 weeks! I just might not have to change all the clothes in my closet to a bigger size. (currently, there are about 15 pairs of pants in there that don't fit!!) In any case, this is what we had for dinner last night and I eat something more or less similar every night...but would like to do a little more coaching in how to eat healthy as part of my blog. Also, I have been having great success with Nature's Sunshine weight loss program...you can use the entire kit or just buy the parts you like or need. I think it mostly depends on your ability to discipline yourself...you may need a lot of help or only enough to get you motivated. I can help you with that, if there are questions. This is a favorite salad and super easy. Almost everyday because the tomatoes and cucumbers are in abundance, I dice them and then add fresh basil out of the garden and a little olive oil or Italian dressing if you like. This time, I stuffed it in an avocado half and added a spout mix that is a favorite. I grow a mix called "pro vita mix" sprouts, you can buy them at Whole Foods or in bulk out of Hyrum, Utah and they are organic and super easy to grow and they taste awesome. They add lots of protein to a salad and are delightful.
Fresh peaches were for dessert. Jared likes his with Agave (a natural sweetener from cactus plants) and whipping cream. I eat mine straight. Jared and his girlfriend, Kim went fishing Saturday night and caught lots of fresh trout, so we had that on the barbque and it was delicious. I'm not much of a meat eater, but he caught it for me, so I ate it and accepted the 'love' he was delivering! Enjoy and Live Well!
