  1. Holly, I used to always be trying to diet and I would lose weight but it wasn’t as easy to lose as it was to gain back. Once I had to go off gluten and sugar all that changed. Without bread, pasta and sugar the weight kind of just disappeared. I’ve always been thin but I was carrying an extra 15-20 pounds I could never get rid of.

    I eat a lot of fruit and veggies. I’ve always been extremely picky and grew up thinking I hated those things because I had never experienced fresh fruit and vegetables. Now that I have I love them, especially raw. I find that my body craves them at times.

    I know they say that too much protein can be a bad thing but in my case I eat a lot of it because I get cold easy and there’s some thinking about getting enough iron. Plus I struggle with a lack of energy and extra protein gives me a boost.

    And I love sweet and spicy together too 😉

    Wendy it does get away from you at times but it’s also addicting.

  2. I am officially on a diet… Ugh : ( I’m trying to get in swimsuit shape for me and my hubbys anniversary vacay! This pico de gallo definitley can fit into my eating plan! Sounds delicious! I love how you use pineapple in it. YUM : )

  3. LOL Sorry Wendy. I scheduled all my topics at the beginning of the challenge but I haven’t gotten to this one yet. I’ll be posting the recipe here shortly. Geez am I embarrassed. LOL
