Back on the healthy track {part 4}

Grilled Mahi Mahi (Black & Red Pepper with Lemon Juice), Mashed Cauliflower with chopped onions
and parsley, steamed veggie medley with lemon juice, pepper, and parsley.
I so appreciate and love getting emails/comments from readers who follow my "clean eating" posts! Eating healthy and developing a lifestyle that focuses on health (with occasional cheat meals) is such a great alternative and really does improve your physical and mental health. I truly feel like I'm back on track and I'm toning up the way I want to, so the clean eating twice a day will continue through the school year.

People have asked what my fitness routine is:
I do whatever my monthly fitness challenge is (planking, for August) and I do a 30 minute cardio or yoga workout at least 5 times a week. Since I am such a fan of "to-do" lists, I add "Fitness" to my planner and don't mark it off until I've done my workout for the day. And, I have the myfitnesspal app which tracks my daily calories and daily steps. If I haven't reached 10,000 steps before dinner time, I do some walking around my complex. This is what works for me, but you'll have to figure out what motivates you to be active daily!

And, be sure to drink lots of water! I drink 8+ cups a day and add in lemon juice or protein sometimes! I've also noticed my increase in water-drinking this summer has helped clear up my skin and grow my nails & hair. Read more here.

So this week, I incorporated cole slaw into just about every one of my clean meals. It's so great raw with some lemon juice and spices or sautéed with other vegetables. Check out some meals I made and ate this past week!

It doesn't look super pretty, but this is my new go-to. Spring mix, cole slaw, and veggie burger cooked together in a "stir-fry" fashion. Topped with lemon juice and honey, so delicious!

Veggie burgers with sautéed cole slaw and some fat free cheese. 

Here's what the cole slaw and spring mix look like before they're cooked, fyi!

Yum! These veggie burgers topped with sautéed cole slaw on top of spring mix was the perfect salad.

And another shot.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Some of the best meals don't photograph well haha! You're def an inspiration with your eating habits Vett!

  2. Cooked coleslaw! That's a brilliant idea. I love cooked cabbage but not coleslaw.
