White Chicken Chili with Salsa Verde

Since Christmas, I have had a hard time following my new meal plan.  Between parties and abnormal schedules, my eating has been a bit off.  I have especially had a hard time giving up wheat.  It is an incredibly hard to make a change like that, especially while being surrounded by so many tempting foods. …

Chicken Marengo

And so it has come.  The end of the year has arrived, and I don’t really know how that came to be.  Another year has passed, but this one feels almost like it didn’t happen.  It feels like I was just frozen in place while time passed around me. Sure, I had some good things…

Health Journey 2.0
