Cream Cheese & Smoked Salmon Toast
On my never-ending journey to better health, I try all kinds of things. I’m the girl who puts apple cider vinegar in her morning water and drinks the new Starbucks Almond Protein drink – even when the barista warns me that it’s really not drinkable – and likes it! I think once I turned 40 last year, I really realized just how important it is to be healthy and strong and I really work hard to get to that place.
I talked about my weight loss here, but honestly, I gained a few pounds back. Ok, more like 20. I have NO IDEA why. The only thing I can think is that I got a little lax here and there, but not really. It may be my exercise – which wasn’t that much. I’ve really bumped it up and started going to Orange Theory Fitness 3-4 times a week with a goal of going 5 times a week soon! I’ve REALLY noticed how strong I am getting and I’m even running on the treadmill for long distances. It’s insane! And, I’m eating better. I’m fueling my body with real food that is good for me – and this recipe is just that!
You have to follow my Instagram account and listen to The All Things Podcast to learn more about that. But for now…on to the toast!
