Smoked Salmon on Multigrain Bagel

Smoked Salmon on Multigrain Bagel Today is my day off! No work-out, no cooking! This is what I had for supper, although it was a platter before it became the sandwich (well, what’s left of it…) that you see above. I can’t believe I actually got up in the middle of supper to grab my […]

Pineapple Chicken

Spinach, Cottage Cheese and Walnuts Savory Muffin Still experimenting with my protein bar replacement; this week-end, I decided to do things a little differently.
