    HAPPY NEW YEAR MY LOVES!! Thank you for making 2017 such a special year for me. I've made a promise to myself that this year I'm going to get back into shape and it all starts with what you put into your body. I'm so happy to be working with Walmart & Interac to bring you my first meal prep video (first of many). I'm thinking I want to make weekly or bi-monthly meal prep videos so we can all do this together, what do you think? Also, which recipe in this video was your fav and which one will you be trying out?!
