Life Questions {Q&A}

I was recently given the honor of participating in a project for a friend and coworker. He sent me a list of questions that several individuals will also be answering.

On Connecting With Those Around Us

Sometimes I wonder how may…

Clutch Zucchini Banana Bread {High Protein}

The avocado serves as a stand in for the butter/oil that most traditional quick breads call for. The baking mix is high protein. It is also sweetened with stevia, and along with…
