My Offspring do the Burpee

My girls have been witnessing my attempt to bring home Burpee gold and they wanted in on the action. They look much better on video doing these than I. Less jiggling and more giggling. ;)

Try This Citrus Dressing

This is a favorite new dressing of mine given to me by a sister-in-law. By making a few substitutions it becomes a reasonable dressing that doesn't load up the calories on your otherwise healthy salad.

- 1/2 tsp. Grated Orange Peel
- 1/3 cup Orange Juice (use the no-sugar added brands and keep in the pulp to get the fiber benefits)
- 1/4 cup Vegetable Oil (Use canola, peanut, or olive oil to get the "healthier" fats)
- 2 Tbs. Red Wine Vinegar
- 2 Tbs. Sugar (substitute low cal/no cal sweetener like Agave Nectar)
- 1 Tbs. Dry Italian Dressing

On my salad:
- Romaine Lettuce
- Pomegranates
- Gorgonzola cheese (by using a stronger cheese I only add a couple pinches vs. a handful of a milder one)
- Chicken TVP(I'm a texture girl and I like a little crunch. This stuff offers more protein/iron but less calories than bacon bits, croutons, or other salad toppers. I order it from Shelf Reliance.)

FYI - I did 33 burpees on my first attempt at the 2 min challenge. That was two days ago. My chest still hurts from the push-ups. I had to take a 10 second breather halfway through but I'm wondering if I drop down and do girl push-ups for that 10 seconds if I could get a few more. Not today though...ouch!
