I've been ignoring the urge to buy new jeans and flowy tops to hide the flabby belly I seem to have acquired over the last two months. And though we're not completely unhealthy, there are still some changes that need to be made. Our "Labour Day Resolution": Cut down carbs and eat healthier. More and more people are noticing our rounder bellies and bigger frames and true enough, if we keep eating the same way, it won't be long until we have to buy a new wardrobe. So, healthier eating, here we come!

My very own version of Asian Salmon and Tuna Salad =)
your choice of greens (ours had romaine, iceberg, red cabbage and carrots. for a more "Asian" feel, try some spinach =))
grape tomatoes
1 can of light tuna flakes
key ingredient: Litehouse Sesame Ginger Vinaigrette (only 35 calories for 2 tbsp!)

For the salmon:
half a lemon
a blend of your favorite spices (salt, pepper, basil, parsley, oregano, cumin, mustard, rosemary)
olive oil

Marinate the salmon in lemon extract, olive oil and a blend of your favorite spices. Cook the salmon in medium heat until golden brown. Set aside.
In a bowl, blend your favorite greens, grape tomatoes and cucumber. Sprinkle half a can of light tuna on top. Place the salmon on top of your salad and finish off with Litehouse Sesame Ginger Vinaigrette. Enjoy! =)

Spice up your rice!
Looking for a twist on your plain white rice? Try this: add a little bit of "I can't believe it's not butter" margarine, garlic salt and a sprinkle of basil. Bon appetit!
