FOLLOWER SUNDAY: Thank You Readership! Guest-Chef and Mother of 2, finds time for others!

By Anthony J Sepe

Each Sunday, I thank my readership for their loyalty and dedication to my blog, by providing to them, a healthy recipe.  To those that know, this is a healthy repeat, but for those that are unaware, this is my way of “giving back.”  It is also a way to “Pay it Forward.”  Each Sunday, not only will you have a healthy recipe, but you will have an expert in the field of dietetics, food and nutrition, provide the healthy recipe to you. 

Finding time for others, is very difficult for many people to do in today’s fast-paced society, but not for our featured Guest-Chef, Ilene.  She has a very busy work schedule, (like the rest of us), is a wife and mother of 2 small children and manages time for her patients with care.  Yet, she does this, without the blink of an eye—and, that’s remarkable!  With that said, let me introduce Ilene Mack, and her healthy Chicken served over rice recipe for you.
