How much did you eat over the Holidays? If you are like most people, then you may have let yourself go this season with one too many slices of dessert, an extra helping of stuffing and a few less trips to the gym. Last year has come and gone and the New Year is upon us. It is time to get yourself back on track with my Mar Y Tierra Kabobs (In English we say, ‘land and sea’) topped with an Avocado dipping sauce. Lose the weight – not the flavor – with the hearty and healthy goodness of these kabobs. It will be sure to jump start positive eating habits in 2017.
Enjoyed best after a winter jog through your neighborhood!
Towards a healthy and happy new year. J
