I’d like to share a story with you all. For many years, I have been happy with my eating habits. While far from perfect, I have had a good balance of healthy foods and indulgences, and was able to eat in a way that makes me feel good.

A few months ago I told you about one of our new favorite snacks - these Fudgy Snack Balls - which continue to be a staple in our rotation.
