I became a marriage counsellor between my body and brain

There was a time I dreaded going out. I would do anything I could to come up with a reason to avoid it. Every time I went out I had to deal with the anxiety of not knowing how my guts would behave. It was a bad relationship I had with my body. I have […]

Carrot Oatmeal Cookies

I really enjoy good food, and healthy food is the one thing I do not compromise on.  After all, this body is a temple and not just anything goes in it. But I also do not believe in deprivation. If you tell yourself you cannot have something, you will simply want it more. It took […]
