Food is the most important part of a healthy lifestyle. It is only fitting that we dedicate a whole day to learning about it, prepping and sharing. Every Friday we will be sharing food ideas, nutrition information or just a great recipe that you can try. We invite everyone to do the same with our BMM hashtag #BMM_Foodie. We all have traditions or ideas that can be shared. With the way the world is now, we can share ideas from around the globe. It’s amazing! So to kick it off Foodie Friday I wanted to start with something fresh and simple. Feel free to add more fun facts in the comments section below, spread the word and share! Thanks for stopping in;)
