What a year, huh? 2016 has come and (almost) gone before my very eyes and I just can’t even believe it. For those of you who have followed along on my journey and partnership with Jen Widerstrom, thank you! We’ve had SO much fun creating quick, easy, and transformational recipes for you. What a fun challenge! I love to partner with other inspirational women who complement what I’m already doing here on the blog. Plus, Jen and I have way too much fun together.
Also, did you guys know that Jen recently wrote a book? Um, it’s amazing and it comes out February 7th so click HERE to pre-order your copy! It’s called Diet Right For Your Personality Type and it basically creates the perfect diet program based on your personality. It’s pretty genius and you might even see a few recipes in there from yours truly!
