Helping You Help Yourself

Monthly Archives: November 2013

It’s that time of year to be thankful for all we have gained – family, friends, good health, and delicious food. But what we also may gain from the holidays is unwanted weight. Maybe this year try serving a healthier Thanksgiving menu and all your friends and family will be thankful.
