Spinach Mango Salad

Spinach Mango Salad!

Today's Tidbit:    Mangoes!  I found Mangoes for $1 each this week so I grabbed a bunch; we love them!  They looked ripe enough today so I cut one up and threw some into my salad at lunch time - awesome addition.  Mangoes are loaded with Antioxidants, Vitamins, Fiber and may even lower blood pressure.  Oh, did I mention...they are delicious too!   Here is some more info as well as some other ideas of how to use them: The Healthy Mango!

And here is a quick 1 minute video showing how to cut one up if you haven't done it before: How to Cut a Mango!

The Story of What Amy Ate Today:
Last year I created the What Amy Ate Today blog to share my personal story of losing over 40 pounds by making simple healthy changes to the way I was eating.  I wanted to show the real life picture of what my daily food choices looked like by simply posting every single thing that I ate every single day; which I did for 9 straight months!   

It all started on May 1, 2012, check out a sample post here: 
One Day Last July...
 I wanted to show that it is possible to lose weight and be healthy without being on a diet and without starving or depriving yourself of anything.  I make healthy choices whenever I can, but I am a normal person living a real life and I want to enjoy it, so I indulge in special treats regularly too.   
It has been a great journey for me, further motivating me to seek out new foods, new recipes and new ways to prepare and eat more healthily and get more Vitamins and Nutrients (and Energy!)  into my day.   I look forward to continuing this journey by highlighting special recipes, new foods and/ or preparations that I discover or create, alongside any helpful Health information or news that I come across through the above "Today's Tidbit".  Thanks for joining me on my journey to better health and better living!
