Are you one of those who wants to shed inches and pounds, yet you can’t quite get to making your food taste good so you salivate when finding “great tips” from weight loss experts such as the recipe below that tempts you in to escaping your senses?
Get REAL! This is hypnosis and illusion to pretend to change your habits and then drench the good foods in your old fat stimulating habits! So, what can you do? Get a grip. Get creative and whip up a fabulous spinach salad with slices of beet and chia seeds and hemp nuts as garnish–throw in some slices of golden peppers, maybe some sunflower sprouts? and pine nuts and strawberries and serve with a dash of oil mixed with fruit infused vinegar. Sounds yummy to my taste buds!
Have a chuckle with the recipe below.
