All you need is:
Pam (cooking oil spray)
Veggies (bell peppers, onions, whatever you prefer)
Salt and pepper 

Spray the pan over with oil.
Now, scramble the eggs in the pan until half cooked, at this point, sprinkle in the chopped vegetables and let them finish steaming, along with the eggs
Also, sprinkle in salt and pepper 

In a separate pan, cover the bottom of the pan with water and let it come to boil.
Once boiling, drop in the cut potatoes and let them boil until tender.

When tender, spray the potatoes with canola oil and sprinkle them with garlic salt. 
Now, crisp the potatoes at your liking, allowing them to finish cooking as well.

On the side now, toast some wheat bread and smother it with fruit jelly.
And hello, you have a continental breakfast!

This meal is also great with a glass of orange juice and/or a cup of coffee.

Dumpling Salad

Howdy! Ever want oriental food, but do not want to spend time in a restaurant?

Well today, we are going to make yummy Dumpling Salad.

All you need is:

  •  1lb of Dumplings (from your local grocery store, Costco ones are good too)
  •  1 head of romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 ripe cucumber
  • 1/2 cup of red peppers
  • 1/2 cup of tomatoes
  • 1/2 head of broccoli
  • 1/2 cup of shredded carrots
First, warm up the dumplings in either a conventional oven, microwave, or on the stove. They should already be cooked from the store, but make sure to read the directions on the packaging.

Next, chop up the lettuce and vegetables into a "chop salad" form, which means cut the vegetables and leaves into 1 inch wide squares or strips.

Finally, mix all the ingredients in a bowl and enjoy!

I prefer raw vegetables because that way, they retain all of the nutrients inside. If you boil or steam them, along with cooking the, the vitamins will also evaporate.

Please refer to the photo for an idea of this yummy meal!

Cleansing drink

Howdy friends!
Tonight over tea I am going to give you a tip for a drink that is both refreshing and delicious!

It consists of:
20 oz of water
Sliced lemons, cucumbers, limes, oranges (mix and match as you please)
A cup 
Ice cubes, if desired

Now, throw the fresh fruit into the cup.
Press the fruit down with a wooden spoon, releasing the juices and flavors of the fruit.

Next, put ice if desired, and fill to 3/4 full, mix it around once more, and enjoy!

Putting lemons and limes in your water helps clean out your system in a gentle and natural way with the citric acids. 
Also, the water in the cucumbers helps keep your face and skin clear.

They say you are what you eat, so why not be a hydrating, inexpensive and yummy drink?! 

For more clarity on how to make this drink, refer to the photo.
