Optimum Nutrition - 100% Whey Gold Standard - Protein Shake

My go to for a before workout breakfast is definitely this Whey Protein from Optimum Nutrition!  It mixes well and isn't really thick so it goes down easy and keeps me feeling full and satisfied which prevents my over snacking on unhealthy foods because I am starving.  I am sure you know what I am talking about :)   It's not fun once it gets to that point because there goes all your hard work right out the window! 

I buy it in bulk because my husband uses it too :)  I am including a link to  the actual product on Amazon.   I find the more I study and read the more focused I stay on healthy weight loss and just eating healthy in general.  So I Follow Optimum Nutrition on Facebook.  Along with a few others, I will be mentioning in my next couple of posts.  Don't forget to "Like" Skinny Jeans Amy on Facebook! 

Healthy Yummy Low Carb Recipe - Asparagus Salad

This Yummy Asparagus Salad was actually brought over by my neighbor.  She is so sweet!!  And who doesn't love a neighbor that brings you Healthy Food :)  This Salad looks super easy to make and is one that when it sets it gets better and better. 

What you need for this Recipe:
  • 1 bunch of Asparagus
  • a handful of Roma Tomatoes, not too many if going for low carb
  • Kalamata Olives
  • Red Onion sliced really thin, this was pretty light in the salad I'd say maybe two slices cut small
  • Crumbled Feta Cheese
  • Balsamic Vinegar
Combine all ingredients, the feta was crumbled all over the top, I did mix it in before eating it though, and didn't think to take the picture until I had mixed it in.  Measurements don't have to be exact which makes this such a nice recipe.  Perfect for a hot summer day!
