For Life

Hello, and welcome back!

Are you eating well these days? If not, it may help to know that we all think with our stomachs on occasion. At such times, it's probably best to enjoy the indulgence with a clean conscience and vow to do better tomorrow. Otherwise too much guilt and remorse might just set you searching through the cupboards for more comfort food!

This week, we look at food as vice! Indulge yourself!!
