Snack Time!

By Jennifer Pittman I love to snack! Who doesn’t, right? Living a fat loss lifestyle does not mean that you have to forego snacking; it’s actually the opposite.

Easy Weeknight Dinner – Mesquite Chicken Thighs and Summer Tomato Salad

By Jennifer Pittman   When it comes to weeknight meals, I’m all about simple, quick and easy. Oftentimes, my husband and I don’t get home on weeknights until 6:30 or 7:00; leaving a small amount of time for supper prep. This recipe is my favorite weeknight “go-to” because it’s yummy, fat-loss friendly, cost effective for feeding a family and literally only takes about 15 minutes of true prep ...[Read More]
