    I have printed off your list and taken a hi-liter and hi-lited all the things I want to try and maybe incorporate in my diet. I’m not trying to be a super health freak overnight because I think I would set myself up for failure. I am looking to make healthy nutrition a lifestyle thing. Keep your great posts coming! I follow you through bloglovin.
