Labor Day Catch Up Blog
Yesterday was BUSY! Went to early church with my mom, followed by breakfast at Cracker Barrel. I love going there because they're very accommodating with special requests and they don't charge extras for healthier options (like egg beaters, turk... Read more

Veggies for Breakfast!
Today's SparkCoach program talked about the importance of getting 5-9 servings of fresh fruit & vegetables into our daily plan. I'm a veggie lover, but admittedly, some days I do fall short of the upper end of the goal. I chased this breakfast ... Read more
