Hi there!! HAPPY Wednesday :D
How are you?! How's your week going so far?! Is it going FITastic?! :D I hope so!! My week has been both productive and healthy, except I strained my arm and it hurts like crazy...lol! And, the worst part, it's the arm that I use the most!! Laughing is better than crying, right?! If you ask my hubby tho, he'll tell you that I'm pretty good at doing both at the same time ;)
Today's post is a bread recipe :D Do you think quick bread is a quick path to holiday weight gain?! I did, until I found the recipe below!! The recipe is low in sugar and refined flours, with extra whole grain flavor! Now you can have your bread...and eat it too!! BRING IT ON!!!
