I wanted to share this with all my buddies working to lose weight in Grumpster Coffee Cup Competition
(Click on link [words “Coffee Cup Competition”] for rules or to sign up–it’s not too late July 27th is the deadline. Come on join in the fun!!)
I realize I should keep my secrets to myself, but I don’t know–I am goofy like that and wanna share good stuff when I find it! I have a link to their FaceBook page where I grabbed this great recipe from–just in case you wanna see what other healthy food ideas they have. I know I will be going back.
Yes, this is a sales job for “Wild Planet.” Why? Cuz they are great!! Seriously, I DO NOT like tuna as a rule. I eat this stuff straight from the can with a splash of lime and a sprinkle of salt. NO LIE! It is that good. You should try them. No. They aren’t paying me for this (Hint, Hint Wild Planet if you are reading this I am so totally game to work for you!) 😀
