Food Makeover: Health Levels and Flavor Anchors

I've been dying to write this one!!! LEVELS! Not everyone is able to live off of vitamins, proteinshakes, with lettuce in between. Ugh!

Most people love them or the McDonald's mcmuffin. Breakfast makeover time!!! Start with the muffin. Do a sprouted english muffin. Now the cheese, instead of American singles do sharp cheddar. If you... Read More

Hello! Today I had a craving for chips, cookies, and everything in between. Stressful day at work.....Don't wanna talk about it...
