Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day 
or a Recipe of the Day

Repurposing leftovers is a healthy diet habit to adopt, because it discourages grabbing fast food or processed food products. Who wants to eat at McDonalds, when you could quickly whip up a meal at home that you love, and costs little time, energy, or money to prepare?

Creative meal planning and repurposing leftovers will give you a second meal idea that does not look anything like the original meal! No leftover complaints here!

Tips on Repurposing Leftovers from Healthy Diet Habits

Your goal should be to plan and repurpose foods into new and healthy recipes that can be shared together. This new meal might not resemble the original meal at all!

Find lots of tips on repurposing leftovers from Kerry's Healthy Diet Habits website!
