It is my opinion that when you are trying to adopt a healthier eating lifestyle to lose weight or to control your cholesterol and/or your blood sugar, the only thing that makes sense is to change the menu for EVERYONE.  Trying to prepare one type of food for your family and a different type for yourself is, in my opinion a waste of time and money!  Plus, if eating unhealthy foods wasn’t good for you, why would you want to continue to give those same unhealthy foods to your family?

I sure hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do and would love to hear what you think about it, so don’t be shy, let me know in the comments!
