Happy Thursday! How is your week going? Are you excited for the weekend? Any fun plans? πŸ™‚ I am not quite sure what is on my agenda yet, but I am hoping something fun…or at least very relaxing!

I also wanted to take a quick moment and thank everyone for your wonderful comments yesterday about your experiences with the paleo diet and/or giving support to finding a meal plan that works for your body!! I am glad to know that I am not alone in how I felt. Also, I always say it is very important to listen to your body and I am so happy to hear that so many of you are doing just that!!! Amazing!! πŸ™‚ Keep up the awesome work! We are each our own person and like one of my beautiful FitFluential friends said yesterday, “There isn’t ONE meal plan that works for everyone!”

Today’s recipe is another one of those quick and easy dishes that I put together on a whim one day! I have been getting an incredible amount of feedback from these quick little dishes! It seems that you are really enjoying them because many of you are cooking only for yourselves or eat differently than your family. I am very glad to see such a great response ! I promise to keep them coming (unless everyone decides otherwise! ;))

I hope you enjoy!! πŸ™‚

        It was wonderfully delicious! There was more there than what I thought! I also love the one-serving recipes. Love squash!

            yeah, you burn off a bigger meal proably faster than I would;)) But nothing seems to go to wasted. I also experimented with the nut/dates combo for the "luna bars" that is WAY too addicting, the mix never got past the dated/nut stage. Anything with a sweet taste is a trigger-food for me.....may not attempt those again, but you know how hard a craving can be we shall see......... Maybe with Lenten season coming up, i may have to try and put those cravings in check:}} Hope you have a good week
