February Food for Thought

February 26, 2019

 

 

Staying the course with nutrition is often the hardest part of a healthy lifestyle change. And with nearly 80% of weight loss success being tied into proper nutrition, it’s quite possibly the most important part of the equation. One thing that makes it incredibly difficult is a lack of knowledge when it comes to recipes and the thought that it just isn’t going to taste very good. That’s why we like to provide healthy, balanced recipes once a month to help you get new food into your rotation. Healthy can be delicious and these recipes will prove it!

 

Here is February’s Food for Thought Recipe

 

By lunchtime, your body will need a solid combination of protein, vegetables and carbohydrates to get over the mid-day hump and allow you to keep your energy up.  This month’s recipe is not only easy to make, but is perfectly balanced to get you through the day! Enjoy!
