“Anyone can become who they want to be right now! If you really believe this, then the world is open to you. However, if you don’t believe it, you will know it because your life won't change in the ways you want it to. All in all, we are made up of what we believe, what we think and what we do. Change any one of these conditions consistently and you will change who you are.” –Tad Inoue

Tad’s Happy Bubble: 

Today I am going to share a recipe from “The Diet Recipe Cookbook” 2nd edition. This is my cookbook written a few years ago by my ex-wife and myself. It is a collection of about 70 diet friendly Recipes. This is just one example I would like to share with you. They all are really delicious! You can find the complete book on my web store (https://tadthedietcoach.com/product-details.php?pid=3&cat_id=7  or link in my IG Bio @tadthedietcoach )
