Sunday Suppers: Lighten Up

We bet you all have resolved to eat lighter for at least a whole week. You don’t have to sacrifice flavor to eat healthy. Here are some options on the lighter side featuring ingredients you should be able to find in the middle of winter. We couldn’t resist slipping in one grilled recipe since our winters tend to be mild.

    I SHOULD resolve to eat lighter. But need to keep up the fat stores to resist the cold temps. This looks so refreshing, I’d better lay off the hearty stew.

    PS. Not much chance of snow in your parts, is there?
