Betsy's Favorite Holiday Recipes
Updated: May 30
I’ve been making small adjustments to my diet to help me manage my blood glucose levels as well as my weight. Cutting back on refined carbs has been the goal all along, but I needed some new foods that would help me shift my diet and keep me fueled for workouts. These two recipes have been game changers and regulars in my new eating plan.
