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!

I LOVE MRC!! My first month was January 2022. At 60 years old, I didn’t think I could lose the 50 pounds I wanted to lose. This program is a way to change your stinkin thinkin and start eating healthy again. Veggies, lean protein and fruits. It works!! My Coaches, Ruthie & Trish are both so amazing and helpful….they encourage you, they share ideas and make suggestions. They are both so positive. I enjoy weighing in. The 50 pounds is right around the corner. I’ve recommended this program to some friends and we are all losing the weight that we need to lose. I feel great. More energy and a zest for life. Thank you MRC.
