Tasty Tuesdays

Tasty Tuesday

One of the many things I’ve learned about myself since losing 75 pounds and continuing a lifetime of managing my weight, is that I actually ENJOY the challenge of making healthy eating TASTY & SIMPLE. If a recipe or food idea isn’t efficient and quick to organize then I’m probably not interested! I love sharing my finds and when I did, folks would always asking me if I had it written down somewhere. A-HA! The birth of Tasty Tuesdays! As you will see quickly, most are not recipes but rather clever tips and tricks for healthy food ideas. They have really helped many busy people keep from getting bored while still eating healthy and in control. Hope you find enjoy them as much as we do!
