  1. Liz, I totally agree with you. It is smart choices what we make matters a lot. Simple boiled potatoes topped with dash of salt and pepper and a dallop of home made yogurt is a heaven for me.

    1. I agree with you. Last night I had plain boiled potatoes with salt and pepper and some lean steak and lots of veggies on the side. So fulfilling!
