Follower’s Sunday: Thank You My Neighborhood Friends

By Anthony J. Sepe

As a way to say “thank you” to my followers’, I designate Sunday, as “Follower Day.” I provide a Healthy Recipe to you each Sunday as my way of saying, “Thank you for following my blog: “From a Dietitian’s Perspective.” As a Dietetics Practitioner and a person, this is one way, which I can “give back.”

Here is today’s recipe:
