    Just made this. Wouldn’t be able to tell it was canned chicken. Used a 12oz can to have leftovers but didn’t change anything else. Still solid

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget.
