Shopping to Slim Your Waist and Wallet- June 2

After Memorial Day celebrations this past weekend with family, friends and fun, summer is officially here.  I don't know about you, but at my house, the grill is on stand by all summer long! Grilling is a fabulous and healthy way to cook anything from lean meats to veggies.  One of my favorite foods to frequent the pit is chicken breast.  Here's an idea- you’re already grilling the chicken, so why not throw some pineapple slices on there too? Tickle your palate with a taste of the tropics!  The caramelized pineapple has a subtle flavor and unique texture packed with vitamin C and is perfect paired with chicken.
