Welcome to 2009!

Ah, a new year has arrived. We don't know about you, but we are on that ubiquitous DIET!

Everyone here at GG is slimming down and shaping up for the new year. And how you might ask? In addition to all the yoga, swimming, and running one can do, we're changing our (sometimes bad) eating habits as well! Here is a great recipe to inspire you - a very yummy, low calorie, low fat dinner that's just about easy as pie (mmm, pie.)

Seared Chili Rubbed Salmon over Refried Black Beans with Mango Salsa
Dust 6 oz of salmon with your favorite cajun spice (preferably one without sugar!) Sear it in the pan until it is just done... about 12 minutes or so. Meanwhile, saute a clove of garlic in a tsp of olive oil (no, we don't say EVOO, ala Ms. Ray) and add one can of organic black beans. Mash with a wooden spoon until it reaches desired texture (we like ours nice and lumpy). For the mango salsa, simply chop up a mango and add some finely diced red pepper, a bit of grated garlic, red onion, tomato if you want, cucumber, maybe some jalapeno if you're feeling spicy.
Dress with lime juice and olive oil, and a few leaves of cilantro, salt and pepper to taste.

Voila! Healthy, easy dinner. Enjoy!
