  2. My doc just told me that my cholesterol is elevated due to my thyroid condition. I've decided to have meatless Mondays and fish on Wednesdays and Fridays. This recipe I will have to try since I'm eliminating things out of my diet. Goodbye chicken wing recipe and I was going to make it tomorrow, LOL.

    1. You can always do the chicken recipe another day! This vegan version of Jambalaya was very tasty even without the vegan protein. Let me know how it turns out for you when you do it! I have a lentil burger recipe that I'll be sharing in the next few days too.

  4. Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get
    advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
