Why not start the new year off healthier. Not necessarily to just be fit and in shape, but to be healthier! People make fun of my style of eating…but my family is healthy and I had an awesome health rating come back from work on some tests we did on how healthy we were in regards to eating style, working out, lifestyle, and blood work. This doesn’t just equal being thin. It means I’ll live longer, I have less risk for cancer and other diseases…and I’m passing these same healthy habits along to my kids…who will also be less at risk for the common diseases now in America. So…make fun of me all you want! I’ll be running, swimming, camping and fishing while the crappy eaters are either dead or in the hospital! Join me on the journey! Just sayin! This recipe is awesome! Great for winter, and it freezes well!
