Last night we had some friends over that are, sadly, fleeing the Cleve for sunnier skies. Their move is especially sad for this Healthy Girl because they are friends that I felt unusually comfortable trying new healthy recipes out on. Why? Because my friend is the (soon to be former) director of the Lifestyle 180 program at the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute, headed up by Dr. Michael Roizen himself http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Roizen . So I could always count on them to understand my healthy ways in the kitchen and not turn their nose up!
If you are wondering what the heck the Lifestyle 180 program is, check out these links:
And, dinner was just as I suspected! My guests were willing and appreciative. I will sorely miss them!
