Why I Decided to Try Diet-to-Go
Being originally from the Ukraine, I really like to cook. From scratch. All those delicious meals like soups and stews, stuffed dumplings and piroghi and, of course, famous Borsch (beets and cabbage soup).
Besides cooking Ukrainian dishes I learnt how to make Asian, Italian and Mexican food. Don’t give me wrong – my husband is perfectly happy with that! But this is my biggest problem!
I come home from work quite late, make a delicious meal for my hubby and me. We eat a nice plate of mouthwatering super delicious and freshly made food, and then what?
We go and serve ourselves with second helping, because it’s soooo good! Guess what? A couple of hours later we go to bed stuffed like turkeys, which definitely isn’t good for our waistlines.
