Gluttonous. That’s what last week was. Family gatherings. Parties. Date nights. Fun. Yes, I lived my life with intention last week, and it was intentionally awesome. This week, I plan to live intentionally lower-calorie.
Yeah, last week sounds like more fun, doesn’t it? 🙂 Don’t worry. You know me. Healthy, lighter foods will never mean boring food in this house! Not. at. all.
Check out these recipes chocked full of healthy ingredients and awesome-sauce, and feel good about what you’re bringing to your family dinner table this week. Yes. I just said awesome-sauce. I’m feeling a little silly this morning.
