Chicken and Spinach

Today, I have a long meeting scheduled at 10 am.  I probably won’t get to eat lunch until 2 or 3.  In the old days, I would have loaded up on carbs like a bagel and creamcheese or a zuchini walnut muffin from Starbucks (my idea of healthy back then).  Now, I know I get … Continue reading
