Healthy Recipe #1

Palm Beach Athletic Wear recommends this recipe -a tried and true one for our staff and friends! We will post recipes that we find and love on a regular basis.  This one in particular is super healthy and was introduced to us by one of our friends and fitness instructor, Andrea. It comes from Tosca Reno’s book The Eat Clean Diet Recharged! It’s a great book for anyone who wants to improve their eating habits and is a great reference book to healthy eating.  I highly recommend it for your cookbook shelf.
