It’s a Great Time to Eat Healthy
I think summer is a good time to make changes in your eating practices because of the excellent quality and availability of fresh fruits and vegetables. A few weeks ago, I decided I needed to lose a few pounds and I picked a plan that uses "points.” I’m sure most people can guess what plan this is but I don’t want to give them free advertising. They already pay enough people to do that for them. Anyway, I thought that links to books and websites about cooking and healthy eating would help you fight the battle of the bulge and eat healthier this season.
