I have to say, I’ve been really happy with some of the new recipes I’ve made in the past few months.  It’s really exciting to find things that are so delicious and filling, yet so healthy too.

Whoa!  Where’d that come from?  I NEVER cheat on my clean eating plan (wink, wink).  Everything in moderation, as my grandpa used to say.

You don’t have to eat heavy, fat-laden, unhealthy food just to enjoy eating.  And if you’re like me, and need a LOT of food to feel satisfied, eating clean and healthy allows you to eat more without gaining weight – a win-win in my opinion.  My hubby loves hearing me say, “Go ahead and have more”.  He is always asking me, “Really? I can eat ALL this?”.
