When it comes to fish most people are skeptical about making it at home, but it’s really simple. I don’t need to provide you with a recipe because it really is that easy.

Dear Subway: We love you Subway because you allow me to eat fresh on the go! You’re our go-to meal when we travel the roads because we still need to be healthy when we’re away from my home. Subway has been a huge part of our weight loss success and we will own up to that. We may not be Jared, but we have our own weight loss story which Subway helped us along the way too.
