Dips, Salads and Bell Peppers

No bread? no problem. When having a tuna, chicken or egg salad, skipping the bread is not a problem. Take a small red bell pepper (yellow, orange or green) and stuff the pepper with your salad mix. A great way to get a veggie in.

Drinking Water

I never knew that water really could be desirable! After giving up soda, it took me about a week to adjust.
