I think these days we all realize how important it is to tell our loved ones just how much we love them because there’s no such thing as too much love. But seeing as tomorrow is the national day of expressing love, I wanted to take a second and let you know how much I love you and how grateful I am for you. My community of supporters, clients, colleagues, family, teachers, every one of you means so much to me and as you read this, I hope you feel a huge virtual hug.
Learn: Many of you might remember when we were advised to buy into the “low-fat” craze that drove our nation into even more of a sugar epidemic. Many followed these recommendations, switching saturated fat for sugar, and as a result we only became sicker.
Rewriting my recipes I was raised on with healthier ingredients has allowed me to not skip out on these special times that revolve around food. I added a graphic in about some sweeteners you can be eating in moderation vs. the sweeteners that you should mostly avoid.
New and Noteworthy: Some things are just too good to be true but this one isn’t: chocolate can be good for you.
