DAILY HEALTH TIP
While some people make the mistake of thinking that whole grain breads and pasta are fattening, that's really not true. Unlike refined grains, whole grains take longer to chew and can make you feel full so that you stop eating before you eat too much.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ....
Chris B.!
