Zone Diet

I started the Zone Diet last month in an effort to increase my performance during workouts and to lose weight. It's working! I lost 4 lbs in the first week! Every meal and snack is weighed and measured to the ounce, so it's a little time consuming but worth the effort. This recipe is a Zone recipe, but so yummy!

1/2 cup Carrots
1/2 cup Celery
