Testimony of the Day

“I started to follow Maria last March 2013, my before picture that in portuguese says “Antes” it looks like I was pregnant but I wasn’t, my baby had almost 1 year old at that time, I was a type 2 diabetic, and I`m not anymore, I have hypothyroidism, and I was always anxious, nervous, tired. I used to have migraines and trouble to sleep, not anymore! I have 3 kids under 5, and now I have the energy that I need to take care of them and play with them, I just love to be on my own skin now, my “Hoje” pic shows how I look today with 50lb down, I fell like my real me again, life is great! thanks Maria for everything, I can’t thank you enough!” – Cynthia

    ooh, made a version of this tonight (didn’t have all the ingredients but had the main ones) and YUM! next time I might let my bacon crisp a bit longer. DH loved it too! I was so impressed!! This one goes on my “to make again” list!! Thanks!!

  • Natalie says:

    This recipe is really good. I didn’t have the smoked paprika and my mustard powder was disturbingly expired. In their place I used regular paprika and squeezed half a lemon over it to give it that extra something–and it turned out impressively tasty anyway–yay!
