Although I live in NYC, I have clients in CT and upstate NY, so I am fortunate to experience the magnificence of nature in New England during the fall. Here are two easy weight loss recipes that feature seasonal, fall vegetables which are easy to get this time of the year – broccoli and pumpkin.
Of course they are gluten free & they come from my all time favorite cookbook and they will help you feel good, get healthy and burn fat.
