The internet is full of “healthy” or “skinny” recipes.

This year is about getting fit for so many. My health plans for the new year do not include “dieting”, but more of a healthy lifestyle change. More fruits and vegetables. Smarter grains, smaller portions, and less sugar.

Hot Cocoa

Less sugar does NOT mean NO sugar.

Sometimes you just have got to have a sweet treat.

This  single serving hot cocoa is quick, easy, and takes a BIG bite out of that sweet tooth.
