Even on the go can be healthy and filling. During my Black Friday Shopping Weekend I fueled my morning with Oatmeal and berries. More sugar than I am used to but I avoided sugar pretty much the rest of the day. Definitely did not go over my limit. With food or my shopping budget 😜

So I got my feet assessed today. This gave me a better understanding of what shoe would be best for me. I was surprised to learn that I am pretty balanced and that I could you a small insert in the sole of my left shoe for more comfort but may ultimately not need it seeing as I also have a left bum hip. So once I finish therapy for that Ill be good to go.
The perfect meal to end a great day. Grilled jalapeño jelly salmon with grilled cauliflour, broccoli and mushrooms
Great option when eating out. Ribeye steak salad with added grilled mushrooms. Dressing on the side.
