Is it really almost the end of November? I know I say this all the time, but where in the heck has 2015 gone? I swear I was just standing in Fountain Square yelling “Happy New Year!”
With Thanksgiving over and done with, may it rest in peace, I am ready to get back on schedule and start eating a clean diet again. Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed my stuffing and pumpkin pie right along side everyone else in the US of A, but I want no more breads, sauces or sugar.
I want fruits and veggies. I ate an apple yesterday and it was AMAZING! Eating clean makes you feel so much better and knocks down the inflammation in your body.
