Eat– for Good Health

Some of you who visit here are on the GOLD STANDARD OF THIN diet– the Kindle eBook sells for ninety-nine cents on Amazon. Gold Standard of Thin $0.99. Eating right helps us take care of ourselves.  Tonight is tennis night for my husband, and he likes to eat light before running around on the court.  I’m making Cashew Chicken and Broccoli Salad.  In my post yesterday, I mentioned how I’ve cut back on chicken somewhat and have added more fish.  Case in point,the Cod Cakes I made last night from yesterday’s post.
