Every recipe has a story! Becky shared hers with us: “This year has been a life changing time for me. I have been morbidly obese for a majority of my life, and I have decided to change that. I am a Texas/southern girl, so it’s in my blood to love food. The problem was, I never ate the right food. Since deciding to lose weight, I have been on a mission to have everything that goes in my body be COMPLETELY natural, cleanly cooked, and functional. And by functional, I mean that every bite of food that goes into my body goes to work in making it healthier. Eating the way I do, I have lost almost 40 pounds in 6 months so far, and my energy has gone through the roof!” –Becky
