April Food for Thought

April 23, 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 April’s Food for Thought Recipe

April is a good month to start enjoying the change in weather and trying new things. How about something light and refreshing for this month’s recipe of the month?
