Hi All! Sorry about not posting yesterday. I dropped my phone and shattered the screen, and I wasn’t near my computer all day. This is what I’m working with until I have time to get it fixed.
Not only is it annoying, I’m also worried about cutting myself on the glass, while trying to send a text or email. I should have it fixed by tomorrow.
Today is all about healthy recipes. I’ve been slacking on recipe sharing, and a few of you emailed me expressing your disappointment. I heard you loud and clear, enjoy….
I purchased a new cookbook and I’m already obsessed with it.
” The New ABs Diet Cookbook is different. It says yes to food, and shows you exactly what to eat to burn fat and build lean muscle. The backbone of this revolutionary diet is the Abs Diet Power 12, the healthiest, most satisfying foods on the planet. The New Abs Diet Cookbook uses these key food groups to put you in control of your nutrition, by cooking your own meals you’ll consume fewer calories, drop pounds in just days and revamp your healthy – all without counting calories or fat grams.”
You know I’m always looking for new ways to improve my diet and persuade my abdominals to come out of hiding. This is the first recipe I tried and it didn’t disappoint.
