Healthy Weight Loss and Fitness Tips

Scroll down for Luna's Challenge! 
There's lots of sound advice out there to help ourselves to healthier nutrition but, IMHO, Dr. Joel Fuhrman ranks among the top 5 advisors....  I learned so much from his PBS presentations, on-line video clips and perrusing his websites. 

An easy tip to remember is.... 

"Make Salad the Meal"

Dr. Fuhrman gives us another one, to remember putting a combination of top micronutrients into the same bowl and the results are quick, easy to remember, satisfying and super healthy -- the "GOMBS" salad -

I was so impressed with this one, I created a visual, above...  To go with these salads, my favorite, ingredients-always-in-pantry-go-to dressing consists of 1/2C organic, unpasteurized, apple cider vinegar with 2T "Vegenaise", white worchestershire, dash of "Cholula" and hot sauce -- that will easily lightly dress about 6 salads.... 

and follows is a link for more info -

Side note to Dr. F:  I apologize for skimping on the "B's" in the title - I doubled the use, combining berries with beans....  ;-)
