I have a confession to make – I don’t eat enough whole fruit! GASP! And I’m not talking about 3 servings/day – I am talking about NO fruit. DOUBLE GASP! You see, I am a spring/summer fruit lover; cherries, peaches, plums, apricots, berries – can’t get enough of them! And it’s not that I don’t like apples and citrus (actually love oranges and grapefruits), I just seem to skimp on them during the winter months. And yes, I know I can eat berries in the winter, I tell my patients that all the time, but they just don’t taste as good! Probably could also whip together a smoothie and get all my fruit servings for the day. But nah, never been a HUGE smoothie person. But never mind all of that, starting TODAY I will try for at least a minimum of 2 servings per day. NO excuses. I suggest you do the same!

Keri’s Kitchen: Smoked Salmon Sandwich
If you are looking for a healthier version of “bagels and lox” I got you covered. Hey, if you know me by now, you know I am a huge bagel lover (scooped of course!). And I really do love a whole wheat bagel with tofu cream cheese and smoked salmon. BUT there are days when I like this version even better!
Here’s what I do:
- Toast 2 slices of 100% whole grain bread. Featured here is Ezekiel 4:9 bread.
- About a heaping TBSP of hummus on each slice.
- A quarter of an avocado divided between the 2 slices.
- One slice of smoked salmon on each slice.
- Topped with red onion, ground pepper and tomato (not in pic).
P.S. I always prefer to eat my sandwich open faced because it takes longer to eat and therefore keeps me fuller!
Why You Don’t Really Need To “Detox” Like Bella Hadid – Allure Magazine
If there’s one word that drives me crazy it’s “detox”. And what makes matters worse is when a celebrity is quoted that it really works for them. “When I eat badly for a while, I need to do a Monday-Wednesday cleanse to be able to flush everything out and detox.” OYYY! So glad to be able to give my two cents for this article; someone needs to be the voice of reason.
Allure Magazine was definitely on a roll last week. “Salt depletion” as a diet? You can’t make this stuff up! Honestly, if it wasn’t for all this craziness I probably wouldn’t have a job. So thank you David Gandy, model for Dolce & Gabbana, for being off your rocker!
