Easy Low-Calorie Menu Solution-Asian Inspired Cole Slaw & Lean Cuisine #FrozenFavorites

If I'm craving a nice salad or some fresh veggies, I have to get order out which can add up throughout the work-week. Luckily, I can pull out Continue Reading

Give the Gift of Health this Christmas Season- Kleenex Care Pack & Share Pack #KleenexSWS

The other day on my Facebook Page we were discussing Christmas gifts for teachers and others that we were wanting to give a small token of our appreciation this Christmas.
