A Healthy Meal by Alicia Coleman

Good Morning!

I’m still keeping my promise to stay healthy and loose weight; but I went on a binge during a very stressful month and gained about ten pounds.

Now I’m on the right track again. In addition, I’m walking to combat stress and keep toned.

Here’s a nice low calorie salad I tried last week that has two of my favorite foods: mangoes and cashews.  Enjoy!
