You all know how much of a health nut I am, and I truly believe taking care of the inside is just as important as taking care of the outside. I watch daily what I put in my mouth, And try to eat organic as much as I can.
I try to share one of my favorite recipes with all of you each month. These recipes are healthy and super delicious. One of the reasons I love this recipe so much is because it’s not only delicious, but loaded up with tons of vitamins and antioxidants. This is a favorite around our home, and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. This is a favorite of mine from Martha Stewart.
