The Ideal Living program offers oh-so much variety, we just don’t know where to begin. But let’s start with some summery-flavored shrimp, add a snack that’s great for any outing or gathering and complete things with a side dish that might fool your friends into thinking it’s not healthy (it is!)
Each of these recipes is available on its own easy-to-print sheet, so grab them all today and try them all this month – they’re awesome for upcoming holidays, too.
