Michelle Bridges means business. If you’ve ever tried her workouts and weight-management plans—or watched The Biggest Loser—you’ll know what I mean. As a personal trainer, she’s tough. But, she also knows how to get results and sustain them.
When it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, she knows that—for most people— food needs to be two things: tasty and easy. So, that’s what she’s focused on in her latest cookbook, Food For Life. The name says it all. It’s filled with delicious, easy to prepare, everyday meals, just like this one.
“This has got to be one of the easiest meals around. Plus it has peas, fresh seafood and three kinds of sprouts – your body will thank you,” says Michelle Bridges.
