and exercising for at least 30 min per day, (oh if I knew then what I know now). I was battling depression and anxiety, and they were winning, I cried every day. My thyroid got sick of the soy and aspartame I was feeding my body and quit. My cortisol worked overtime to make up for it, and threw my female hormones askew; I suffered from adrenal fatigue. Serious self loathing and an inability to cut myself a break sealed the coffin on any reasonable physical health.

A steamy chocolate chip banana bread muffin. What’s better than a cozy loaf of warm banana bread. Nobody wants to wear their food, and sweet bread crumbs and chocolate chips just love to make their mark on clothing
