Help a sister out :)

Hey everyone!

With our upcoming move I am sure I’ll be without internet for several days at the end of this month and beginning of next month. If you are interested in writing a guest post for Prevention RD, please email me at PreventionRD@gmail.com. Topics can include recipes, healthy eating tips, exercise advice, personal stories of weight loss or body image…the sky is the limit! I would like to schedule these guests posts by the end of next week, the 25th and will accept the first 6-7 responses! Please include your name and blog, if you have one. Pictures are appreciated!

Thanks in advance! :-D

And a little summery garden cheer — fresh pico de gallo made 100% from home-grown tomatoes!

Garden Fresh Pico de Gallo

2 lbs fresh tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 bunch of cilantro, chopped
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 large green bell pepper, finely chopped
1 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

Directions:

Mix it all together and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Yield: 8 servings.

Nutrition Information (per serving): 78 calories; 5.4 g. fat; 125 mg. sodium; 7.3 g. carbohydrate; 2.3 g. fiber; 1.5 g. protein

Result: Everyone loved this! I substituted some heirloom tomatoes for Roma tomatoes or other red tomato variety. It was a wonderful flavor and was a huge hit with guests!

Mr. Prevention also helped prepare for our guests last night by contributing a fancy cheese tray:

Cute, huh? ;)

I also made Faux Fried Calamari which was a huge hit! No one had tried calamari before and they all loved it!! You should try it, too! ;)

Question: Do you enjoy entertaining?

    That looks so amazing and it just tastes so much better fresh from your own garden. Luna (my lab) general information ate my one ripe cherry tomato, right from the vine!!!! Can you believe the little monster. When she used to dig up one carrot a day to eat it was cute, responsible gambling but this was my only ripe tomato, I was just waiting one more day for it to be perfect :(

    That pico de gallo looks delish!

    I’m not at the point where I enjoy entertaining yet. We seriously have people over once every 6 months haha. I get overwhelmed with play poker online preparing food and making sure there is something for everyone. Your pico is a great, simple idea though. :)

    If I was not so darn busy, and was even able to keep up with my blog, I would love to. If you want a quick post about the island, I can probably whip something up on Portuguese food. I feel your pain, I am headed out of town slot machines online for a bit and I want to keep up with my mobile casino blog, but I do not think I will be able to until I get home.
