I have some exciting news!
Recently, I was quoted in The Food Lover’s Healthy Habits Cookbook by Janet Helm on how I incorporate Whole Grains into my diet as part of my balanced lifestyle.

Janet Helm and the folks at Cooking Light were generous enough to send me 2 copies of this book. Naturally, I kept the first copy for myself, and I decided to give the second copy to my bestie, Jhiane, who is my #2 fan, after my husband. Jhiane is a big supporter of my blog and comments often whenever she has a chance. More importantly, whenever I hit a blog milestone, she seems more excited about my accomplishment than I. And last but not least, I think my friend can really benefit from this healthy cookbook and learn to adopt an overall healthier lifestyle!
