Food for the Warrior

Food for the Warrior

I grew up in northern Pennsylvania, where many of my high school friends went into the military. One of them, Tanya Kabes Lauro, was originally turned away by the Navy for being “overweight” by their standards. She took the Navy training program (with 4am wake up workouts) and lost 60 pounds.  Now a Navy veteran, Tanya is pursuing a career in health and fitness. She recently wrote a book called “Food for the Warrior: Mission to cook healthy.”   All proceeds from the digital book go to the Wounded Warrior project too!

I asked Tanya to share a healthy recipe from the book that you could have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. This is great for those without time to make breakfast in the morning, because you can prepare it Sunday night and eat it for the rest of the week’s breakfasts.  The secret to successful weight loss is being prepared.
