so I often help people, especially those in my fitness challenge teams, with food options that are healthy. I post a picture and often will post a recipe. well, I had a request to post them on pinterest, but I would need some place to link them from, so I figure why not from here, where all my health and fitness happens!

OK, this is what’s for dinner tonight!
