Recipe Image: Dijon-glazed Green BeansIf you entertain for the holidays, then thoughts of what you might serve up this year are probably flickering across your mind. Just because you're trying to stay healthy doesn't mean you have to sacrifice flavor for you OR your guests! These green beans put a delicious pop of flavor and twist on traditional green beans that can be enjoyed by anyone at any time of the year!

Just wanted to update....this place is a godsend...im down nearly 100 lbs and off a few of my medications that I was on! This is not a crash diet or anything like that....they give you the tools to make better choices and don't beat you up if you mess up. I would recommend this place to anyone that has PCOS like me. It's hard to lose the weight and keep it off due to this syndrome. Last check up I had with my doctor and my PCOS is being managed very well. I have found a me that I never thought I could find! There is a support network unlike any other...you are not doing it alone; they actually help build you up and motivate you but hold you accountable. Ladies here are awesome, and I'm definitely glad I started my program...already lost 30lbs and food tastes really good!
