Gourmet cooking and the HCG Diet

This notion strengthens when you are on a strict dietary regime, like that pertaining to the HCG weight loss program. Hcg diet cooking

Fruity delight – Mix fresh pineapple cubes, slices of banana, a few strawberries and blueberries and serve with a sprig of mint. This one is sure to be the easiest of the HCG Diet Recipes! And it sure is yummy!
