Vlog 8 – What I Eat

Vlog 8 – What I Eat

This week I’m talking about what I eat. I don’t follow any diets or trends. I’m not vegan or LCHF, and I don’t eat paleo. Instead I focus on a well balanced diet that includes a lot of vegetables that are a variety of colours, and I don’t sweat the details. A couple staples of my diets are big kale salads, and sausage & peppers. One of my favourite things to eat is almond butter, and I show you how I make that too. Below are these recipes on my blog.
