    Mediterranean Pizza

    I love healthy pizza! We make it whenever we get a chance. Like when I made a roasted vegetable pizza with my girlfriends.

Choosing a new recipe once a week can be helpful. Mix it up. Try using beans as…

    Lifetime of Success

    Last week I spoke about ditching diets and just eating healthier. Changing your eating life style will lead to success. Here is another tip for a lifetime of success.

That’s all. I am not saying eat 1 slice of dry toast for breakfast, a salad with fat free dressing for lunch and a 1/2 cup of cottage cheese for dinner. I am talking real foods and real amounts. Eat until you feel full and satisfied, not…
