Everyone seemed to have an opinion about my engagement. I was only twenty, not even old enough to drink legally, when my college boyfriend proposed. I strongly believe women should decide if and when they want to marry, but sadly, the same sentiment is not shared around the world. My friends teased me for being […]
Now that kids are back to school and life is in full force it’s totally time to get down to business with the meals. I try as hard as possible to keep my son healthy, especially since I grew up battling the bulge. It’s not always an easy task to get your kids to really and truly understand the value of health and eating well! And if your house is like mine, you’re always fighting the food fits. I’ve learned a few lessons along the way and would love to share my tips with you! Remember..I’m not a doctor or dietitian.
