Baked Lemon Shrimp and Zucchini

I did it! I changed up my hair. I wanted to go darker, so I went to Sally’s Beauty and picked out what I thought was a nice brown, with a subtle hint of red. I do have a natural red tone to my hair, I thought it would look good. Plus I really liked the swatch, held up to my face and it popped on me. My GBF (gay best friend, hey, every woman needs a male GBF) told me I should ditch box color and just get it at Sally’s. So I did, I got a bottle the color and the developer, and went about redoing my hair. When I washed it out, I was taken back, my hair was really red. Redder than I wanted. I immediately started thinking, maybe I get some highlights to tone it down. As my hair was drying, the coloring started to soften, I really started to like it. I think it was the initial shock of seeing that red.  It was redder than I wanted, but I did want a change and I actually like the final results.

Change can be a wonderful thing, that old saying there are no mistakes, well the mistake here being the coloring was more red than brown, ended up being a good mistake.So maybe there is no such thing as a mistake could be true. Now had it come out looking like Ronald McDonald I most likely be singing another tune.
With my changes, I talked about having a healthier lifestyle and losing weight. Knowing this I was asked to review Total Nutrition from Immortal Herbs. What is Total Nutrition?

Overall I liked it, and I would give this a thumbs up. I felt like I got natural energy from this drink mix. It really helped me I think in my quest for a healthy lifestyle and in my never ending battle of losing weight. You can check them out and learn more about Immortal Herbs by following them on Facebook.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

 

Changes, that is my new attitude, I decided I want changes and go back to having that healthy lifestyle. Don’t get me wrong I like a cheesecake as much as the next person, but I like healthy tasty food. I know others out there like it too. After all the diet industry is one the biggest money makers out there if you look at book sales, diet programs, and supplements. To live a healthy lifestyle you need to eat healthy dishes. I love shrimp, which is healthy, and I really love lemon. Lemon and shrimp are a match made in heaven. I got a few zucchinis from someone whose garden really over produced. I decided to make this dish and incorporate all this into a great tasting healthy dish.
