I am working on cutting back on my desserts and I found this recipe on Spark People and prepared it. The author is AMBERNEZZIE. I made ˝ of the mixture with lemon and lime juice, the other ˝ of the recipe with dark chocolate powder and I substituted splendor for sugar. I was very satisfied with one cheesecake. I, like the others that have tried this recipe, gave it 5 stars. I hope you will try it—especially if you are battling the sugar monster, like me.

I love salmon and salmon is my fish of choice for my no meat days of the week; however there is a challenge to find new recipes to keep my taste buds peaked. This is a new recipe for me that I found on theprocessofhealing.com and it is so delicious. The sweetness of the Agave Nectar and the kosher salt give it the tasty crust that I love and roasting the salmon in the oven keeps the salmon moist.
You will need:
• salmon, skin removed (I used about 3 oz. fillets)
• 2 tsp.Agave Nectar
• 1 tsp coarse salt/Kosher salt,
• 1 tsp pepper
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and prepare a baking pan (I line it with foil and spray it with cooking spray to make for easy clean-up).
Heat a non-stick skillet over Med-High heat (you are just searing the salmon) and spray with cooking spray or olive oil. Meanwhile, remove the skin of the salmon.
Spread Agave Nectar on the side facing up and season with salt and pepper.
Once the skillet is hot, place the salmon seasoned side down. Do not touch the salmon for about 2 minutes and this will create a crust.
Meanwhile, season the side of the salmon facing up the same way as the other side.
Flip the salmon over once that side has a nice brown crust and cook on the other side for another minute.
After 1 minute, move the salmon to the prepared baking pan and bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes (for well-done).
Sit down with your healthy sides and prepare to have"your socks knocked off".Enjoy
Today, my old favorite place to get a chocolate shake with extra chocolate syrup was having a ˝ price sale on any of their shakes for the whole day. Not today, I said to myself, I will have a delicious strawberry pineapple smoothie that does not have all of the calories or fat as my old favorite. I really love my smoothie; it is made with Greek yogurt, strawberries, pineapples and almond milk. Yum, Yum. Today, I chose to eat healthier and I love it.
Spark Members, I think we can all agree that some days are better than others. Tuesday was a very challenging day for me because everywhere I turned there were so many unhealthy dishes to take my mind off of my journey, but so many of you came to my rescue and you did not even know that you touched me with your conversations and saved my Tuesday. We need each other. Thanks Spark Friend and keep on encouraging others with your many conversations as you journey through the valleys and as you reach your mountain top. “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11 NIV
