My Sweet Tooth Sherbet!

I was having a sweet tooth moment at work and instead of going for the candy jar I decided to use what I had in the freezer. I always have frozen bananas and strawberries for shakes. I took a half of a frozen banana and 3 frozen strawberries and stuck them in my magic bullet with a bit of water. I had to add more and more water to get the consistency right (very small amounts). It turned out awesome! I'm a girl who loves ice cream so this was a nice little treat and a healthy one! Plus it's under 100 calories.. :) 

1/2 Frozen Banana
3 Frozen Strawberries 
Water (adding in small increments) 

Stick it in a blender (I use a magic bullet) and pulse until it reaches an icy consistency. 

*Don't add too much water or it will ruin it- best to go in small amounts at a time to be safe- I added a bit about 3-4 times before I got the right consistency** 

Refreshing!! :)

Baked Salmon

I'm not a huge seafood fan but I know it is healthy and I have a feeling that if I just give it a shot I might like it. I tried Salmon the other night at blue sushi and I liked it so I decided to try cooking it at home. I got this recipe from a friend - it was so simple it was ridiculous.. 

3 Pounds of Salmon Fillets 
2 Tablespoons of Grass-Fed Butter
1/8 Cup Capers
1 Lemon Sliced 
Salt and Pepper to taste 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rinse the salmon under cool water and pat dry. Poor melted butter over the fillets on the baking dish/pan. Sprinkle them with capers and place lemon slices on top. Salt and pepper the fillets and bake the salmon for 15 minutes per pound. Serve with fresh greens... :)
