My Week in Food- Week #1

As a self-professed ‘Queen of Procrastination’, it should come as no surprise to any of you that this post is actually about 1 1/2 weeks late. What can I say?! Dieting is time-consuming! Be that as it may, I try to live by one of my favorite mantras ‘better late than never’ and I truly feel like as long as this gets posted sometime within the 365 days that make up the year 2013- well, then I’m doing pretty good!
