I always reason a healthy lifestyle is too time-consuming and expensive, but feeling sluggish and low-energy means I spend a disproportionate amount of the day glued to the couch- not exactly time-efficient!
I had been feeling like making some healthy changes so my moods and energy levels would be lifted. But the real source of inspiration came via a more urgent request... A friend asked me if I would help out with a prostate cancer awareness campaign he's organising. This guy is the nicest out, and is about to lose his dad to cancer. I couldn't say no.
The catch? He wants me to stand in the middle of uni. With a moustache. IN A BIKINI.
Needless to say, I am now a member of the gym! My boyfriend taught my clueless ass how to do bench presses and leg curls and all that gym jazz and it was actually kind of fun- to my absolute surprise!
To celebrate, we cooked a healthy meal. Teriyaki salmon and pesto spinach salad.
|Our culinary efforts- YUM?!|
It was totally delicious and totally easy.
2 skinless salmon fillets
1 onion, sliced
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
- Place salmon in middle of the al-foil and cover with onions & garlic
- Put sides of foil up to make a dish
- Gently pour teriyaki sauce over the salmon
- Fold foil so it is sealed
- Marinate in fridge for 1/2 hr
- Cook in oven - preheated to 18O degree C- for 1/2 hr
For the salad, combine baby spinach, avocado, cherry tomatoes and pesto.
& to satiate my sweet tooth, I opted for a ripe mango- as yummy as any lolly.
