6-Month Anniversary

By Anthony J Sepe

12454853822568z1 Today is a special day, which belongs to you—the reader! Ninety-four posts later and 6-months strong, “From A Dietitian’s Perspective” is celebrating its anniversary.  The New Lexicon Webster’s Dictionary describes an anniversary as this:  “the yearly return of the date of an event, or, the particular day on which such a return is celebrated.”  Over the past 6-months, how have you enjoyed: Blog: “From A Dietitian’s Perspective,” –share-- what has been meaningful to you.

In celebration of our 6-month anniversary, I’d like to share what I’m having for lunch today, with you:  In my opinion, this is The Best Veggie Burger in the World.
