I love the fact that we have a company culture that cares not only on improving ourselves but also others. Wellness and health are things that I have neglected for many many years. However, I am starting to make positive and long lasting changes for a better future.  So in the spirit of wellness and  health I wanted to share with you a recipe I recently tried that was both flavorful and delicious.
