This is an easy lunch you can make, that transports well to the office.
Fillet Mignon, onions and a spinach salad with avocado, tomato and an evoo and balsamic vinaigrette.
Slice the fillet in small thin pieces. Slice a 1/4 of a sweet onion (they are in season now).
In butter saute the onions. Keep them on the firm side, the little bit of crunch will add to the texture of the salad. Next quickly cook the meat. I use some sea salt and fresh ground pepper to give it some extra flavor. Side note on sea salt. As long as your active (and sweat regularly) occasional sea salt is ok in my opinion. I think it is NOT ok if your sedentary. It will add to the myriad problems of being sedentary.
In a large bowl combine organic baby spinach, an avocado and a handful of grape tomatoes.
In a small dish combine 4 tbsps evoo with 1 tbs balsamic vinegar. Stir well, drizzle over the salad and toss together. You can find a large tub of organic baby spinach at Costco. I think I paid $4. for it. Also if you have a hard time finding organic fruit (especially berries), Costco has great great deals on blueberries, black berries and raspberries. They are grown in the here in the US and not overseas. Buy some extra blueberries and toss them in the freezer.
One more tree climbing picture. I go to the top of the tree, so by the time I come down, my limbs are tired. As you can see from the small grimace on my face, lol.
Climbing palm trees is a little different then climbing a big oak tree. If you haven't climbed a tree in a while, just like any exercise/play, start slow. But give it a shot, it's a wonderful workout and just makes you feel like a kid all over again.
Make it a great day!
