Hey girls! It’s that time again….step on those scales because it’s Think Thin Thursday!
I know that most of you are not actually from New Orleans, but I wanted to share with you that the Got Milk? Mustache Mobile Tour will be rolling into the French Quarter Festival on April 18th and 19th. The tour will be focusing on the wellness benefits of milk and each event will have a Wellness Beverage Center where people can sample local processor milk and lowfat smoothies. Families can also take a picture with Milk Mustaches!
Here is a great lowfat recipe using milk!
