Chicken Tartine with Arugula & Tangerine Vinaigrette

That means fewer carbs and fewer calories and, if you’re on Weight Watchers like me, fewer points! This one utilizes that leftover chicken you might have, or simply bake up some chicken breasts with salt and pepper and slice it!

For lunch or for a light dinner, this is a delicious way to go! Continue reading

What Are We Even Supposed To Be Eating?

image_pdfimage_print

The hardest part of achieving a healthy diet is figuring out exactly what you’re supposed to be eating. There’s so much conflicting information from different sources. You know you’re supposed to get your vitamins and nutrients, but you might be a little confused as to where you’re supposed to get them from.
