A healthy and delicious meal

Ah….spring is here!  And that means it’s time to start eating healthier.  Did you know that it’s scientifically proven that American’s prefer a little crunch with their lunch…that’s why we love potato chips.  I guess that’s why I also love adding carrot sticks and celery to my lunches.  Anyway, I can’t remember exactly where I read that…it was probably Cosmo or Facebook….so you know it’s a true fact. 😉
