I have just recently started eating shrimp.  I’ve never been a fan of shellfish, fish, crustaceans, or any other word for things that inhabit water.  But, I’m learning, because it really is a low-fat healthy way to get some good protein in you. I found this recipe in the January 2009 issue of Fitness Magazine. […]

I am so excited to write this Food Edition of Thursday Threes!

I found this idea in the July/August issue of Whole Living, Body + Soul. If you don’t have a subscription to this magazine, I highly recommend it!! Don’t sweat the rising temperatures.
