Crawling Down Struggle Street

Day 12? Only day 12?! Are you kidding! ….So I guess you could say that I am a bit of a sugar addict, probably more so a chocolate lover. It’s been 12 days and it feels like I am crawling on hands and knees down Struggle Street. The first week was quite easy because there […]

Customising Your Salad

  Now, we’ve all heard that people can either be salad lovers or haters. I believe anyone can be a salad lover, if they customise the ingredients based on their own personal tastes.
