Thanks to Courtnye Heidleburg of the Chicago Examiner, my Grilled Fish with Roasted Red Pepper Aioli was featured in the article, Better Health and Well Being for Plus Size Living. In addition to spiritual and mental well being, Heidleburg explains that diet and exercise are important to help the body “rejuvenate itself and replenish strength.”
