I recently heard from a listener of my podcast, Chew on This, who wrote in to ask a question about belly fat. Her name is Kellie Graham, and she also shared this recipe for the green smoothies she and her family are loving right now. This recipe would require a larger blender than a Nutri-Bullet, […]

Seriously, I just can’t get enough lettuce wraps. Why not? They are low carb, high protein and packed with satisfying flavor. Lettuce wraps are nearly the perfect meal – and if you can make them in the slow cooker, they are a super easy way to put dinner on the table at the end of […]
