The Engine 2 Diet 28-day Challenge: Just say ‘no’ to oil
Monday, January 26th
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Plano, FREE!

Fats are important for the assimilation of some vitamins and minerals. Fats from whole sources like avocados, nuts and seeds have nutrients that just plain oil does not have. Every tablespoon of oil, no matter the type, means 120 calories of pure fat and very little else. Over the course of a day, items sautéed in oils, salad dressings, and processed foods containing unnecessary fats add up. What if you could cut that calorie dense product out of the mix? Laurie Atchison, Healthy Eating Specialist, will have solutions! Class size is limited! Reserve your spot HERE!
