Soy Citrus Scallops with Udon Noodles and Snow Peas


It has been a really long time since I’ve had a terrible, no good day.

I should go knock on some wood.

But, yesterday was a terribly, no good day.


I had blocked out my schedule to attend a diabetes conference in Kalamazoo and I was excited for a day away from the hospital and a day devoted to learning about diabetes –a topic I’m very passionate about.

I was actually NOT running late, but my GPS was having trouble finding the location. When it said I had arrived, there was definitely not a hospital campus in sight. I was sitting at a red light and leaned over to the passenger side floor to pick-up the printed page that contained the address of the conference. During my lean to retrieve the paper, my foot came off the brake and the car started rolling forward. I slammed on the brake, but unfortunately, my foot landed on the accelerator instead.

I went speeding ahead…straight into the Jeep in front of me.

Seriously? Seriously.

The young guy driving the Jeep pulled over and in my haze of stupidity for my careless action, I was totally shaken up, literally. “Are you okay?”….Are you sure you’re okay?” he kept asking as I was jotting down my insurance information.

A diabetes conference later and a quick visit to a body shop for a quite, I’m looking at $2-3k for my carelessness. UGGGGGGGGGGGH.


After my workout, Mr. Prevention suggested going out for dinner. And I happily obliged. Even though I had a very simple dinner planned, I jumped on the ease of dinner being made for me. I don’t think I could’ve handled a dinner as simple as this last night and that’s saying something because it doesn’t get much easier than this.

I’ve been anxious to post this recipe for over a week now — we were both wow-ed by this one. Simple, fresh, and delicious!


TGIF! We actually have a busy weekend planned….luckily, all fun stuff! :-D Happy weekend!

Be well,
