Do you doubt your ability to kick sugar and ditch processed carbs?

Are you tired of failing diet after diet?

Take heart.

Today, I invite you to see it, feel it, enjoy it.

Note from Connie: Today it’s my pleasure to share another yummy recipe from my friend Angelika Ilina, who has created a healthy, low-carb, no-sugar version of a meal you can prepare for your honey and you.

Posted on

Note from Connie:  Since it’s winter, often cold in most parts of the world, and I’m home sick with pneumonia, my friend Angelika Ilina — founder of the Love On the Table blog for health-conscious foodies — was kind enough to share her tasty, easy, low-carb version of her Grandma’s Chicken Broth Recipe. As you’ll note, this recipe contains no gluten-filled noodles.
