I think that it is only since I reclaimed my life with a keto diet that I really started noticing that often we will eat whatever is put in front of us, without giving it any thought as to whether we should.

It’s pronounced seer-sha, and it means Freedom. I’ve always been a stuffed animal fan. From as far back as I can remember, no matter where I was in … Continue reading Saoirse
I am not Rick Steves. God love him with his great books, videos, website and tours, and his friendly outgoing social persona that gets every best delicious morsel out of his travels. We dream of being like him. But you see, I’m an introvert. I don’t mean the misconceived antisocial weirdo hermit image that just popped in to your brain. I love the way Laurie … Continue reading I am not Rick Steves.
