My allergies might be out of control...or I have a continual respiratory infection (but I've done the antibiotic run) - so after this weekend it's back to hard core diet stuff.
There are many facets to health and fitness, some are spiritual. Is Christ honored in my body? Keep that in the front of my mind...
This recipe wins out as a favorite - easy, healthy and (except for the rice) pretty paleo. (This is a photo I took myself, no staging, etc. So this is what "my version" looked like.)
