Nutrition Discussion

We had a great time even though the weather was a little dreary on Wednesday. We calculated our daily needs for fat, carbs, and proteins, and shared secrets on meal planning, self control around sweets, and improve our knowledge on shopping and reading nutrition labels.

I handed out a sample of what I eat for the week and I will try to post it on here every week to give you ideas about variety, planning, shopping and cooking.

Feel free to post your favorite tips and secrets too!!
