intuitive eating

If you’re interested in intuitive eating, I am betting that you already understand why dieting doesn’t work.

Quick Stovetop Glazed Carrots

Glazed carrots

These glazed carrots are a quick side dish I threw together on Christmas day this year, and they were a huge hit!  I tend to always make either green beans or asparagus when we do Christmas day beef tenderloin, and wanted to try something different.  It came together with under ten minutes of hands-on time, and…
