#MacroFriendlyMondays — Green Bean Fries—Two ways!

No Boring Veggies! {How To Roast And Season Veggies}

Anybody ever had some poorly cooked and very sad broccoli that wasn’t worth eating? Yup. Me too. But it’s still one of my favorite veggies! Sometimes it’s not actually the food itself we don’t like.

If you follow me on Instagram, it’s no secret that I have been enjoying a nightly #JellOYogurtBowl (#YJPBowl). My personal preference for them is to also add some sugar-free Jell-O pudding. I use either almond milk or cashew milk rather than regular milk which shaves off some calories and carbs. You could really use any…
