bye bye bananas, hello Faberge'
So this is the week that I bid a sad farewell to bananas. How I love them in a smoothie or for a take along snack. They pack a punch, with all that potassium, but, no more. I have the dreaded banana bloat.! Who knew? A banana a day is not the w... Read more

What a confidence builder! I l... Read more
