“Well Ducklings, it is almost the new year, and this little piggy has decided it’s time for a change.  Sure being buxom has worked out well for me in the past, but I’m just tired of being over weight.  Not to mention the health risks associated with some of the foods I allow to pass for “diet” food!  So it’s time for a little revamp! “

“The shopping list for these breakfasts/lunches can be found in this blog too!  I usually start the morning with a brisk walk/jog and some yoga.   If you’re like me, and you find it hard to run after a good Breakfast, try eating only half of your breakfast before your walk/jog, and the other half when you get back. It has worked wonders for me.”
