    Great blog… I like the idea of having its “healthy nutrition facts” here…….. Thanks for the pingback…

  2. Thank you for the ping-back to my Easy Grilled Chicken on Salad. I think we literally eat it at least once a week. I’ll throw in some craisins and walnuts one day, mandarin orange slices and some shredded cheddar another. It’s all good! Best of luck on your weight loss journey and thanks for stopping by!
