With the new year, I’ve made the goal to start buying more and more wholesome and fresh foods to help foster a healthier lifestyle for my family. Just yesterday I managed to shop only the perimeter of the store, loading my basket with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. My family on a whole is pretty good with vegetables, but I would really like to see us eat more fruit and less bread, crackers and pasta items.

My goal with our family dinners is to make at least 2 servings of vegetables in addition to the protein, and add fruit whenever possible. I also am making the goal for us to stay away from sandwiches and pizza at dinner time. I think carb loading earlier in the day is much better than right before bed.

For tonight’s dinner, I’ve prepared this fresh corn, tomato and avocado salsa to top a piece of fresh salmon that has been seasoned with salt, pepper, cumin and Mexican oregano. I’ll serve it over a bed of quinoa with side salad and sauteed zucchini and onion.

Since we live in Florida – it’s pretty easy to enjoy fresh produce because we have some great fresh, wholesome and local options available year round. In January, when everyone is in the country is suffering through snowstorms and freezing temperatures us Floridians are able to brag about fresh tomatoes, avocados and corn! Besides all the wonderfully fresh citrus, we have a tone of fresh fruits and vegetables in season too.
