Quick Salad

 This quick healthy salad is a lot more exciting than the word salad sounds. Its full of mega goodness and has my favourite super food avocado.
 This is a great salad to make as you can substitute various things depending what you have in your fridge. As well as tasting great  it looks so bright and shouts out  happy food. This will without exception provide a great boost to your low-carb lifestyle.

This photo is my version of it and is more or less to recipe.You can get the full recipe here.  Even though this salad is for two of us I have made the 4 serving recipe as we will take the rest for lunch in work tomorrow.

 We have become very good at minimising waste food and shopping wisely. One of the great benefits of a low-carb lifestyle which has surprised us is how much we have improved our carbon foot print. The amount of packaged waste has almost reduced to nothing, we have gone from three bags of rubbish to one a week and that has to be a big plus.

Fridge Graph

Here is my actual graph from Fridge Graph from when I started on this great low carb journey on the 1st March up until today.I hit my first target with some ease and on the 1st of June 2010. I started my second goal/challenge to end on the 1st September 2010.
As you can see from the graph I have not fully kept on target in the last few weeks, after losing 35lbs my weight is now becoming more difficult to lose. I had a leg injury that stopped me running for the last month but I have managed to maintain my weight by doing simple yoga and working on my abs.
Now that my leg is almost better and I am now running again I would expect my weight to start falling although I have to say that I have only 8lbs left to reach my final goal.

Fridge graph is a great way to boodt your weight loss by giving you a great visual tool to keep you motivated.
