I wanted to create a healthy fresh quick meal and I did it for under twenty two dollars and I am SO proud.  This meal was a success and will be a repeat in my house.  I wanted to not  have to spend too much time in the kitchen so I bought store bought pesto, […]

I would like to start by saying I am feeling the best I have felt in two years.  I have had to really listen to myself and my body.  I advocate for my health.  We all need to be in charge of ourselves and the choices for our body.   I have chosen to cut […]
