Salted caramel is one of my favorite flavors. That mix of sweet and salty.... I'm drooling.

From Paleo to Plant-Based: Why I Returned to a “Vegan” lifestyle

Then there are those who 100% define themselves by their disease and would consider nothing else then to be called a Lymie. I understand both sides. When you are so sick… Continue reading Why I Call Myself a Lymie
