Feeding Yourself Well = Self Care

This year I have really tried to focus on feeding myself well at lunch time.  If I treat myself to a healthy and delicious lunch I feel much more satisfied and I never feel guilty for eating something junky.  Fast food = feeling sluggish + feeling guilty.

Lunch In Minutes

The other day I cooked up a big skillet of this southwest turkey burrito mix and I have enjoyed the heck out of it all week for lunch.  I use the La Tortilla Factory whole wheat high fiber tortillas and sprinkle a little cheese on top and this baby is golden.
