As I enjoy a 1/2 cup of lowfat vanilla ice cream, with one tablespoon Hershey's lite Chocolate Syrup, and 7 walnut halves broken over the top, I'm so glad I have given up my glass of wine with supper. It frees up these extra calories so i can en... Read more

I had a great time this past weekend with my husband. We enjoy visiting the coast of Maine. It was so last minute though that I did not pre-plan for how I was going to navigate through my eating. The first day we left before breakfast, so a... Read more
