Plant based eating with multiple sclerosis

Plant based eating with multiple sclerosis

A few weeks ago I made the decision to go back to plant based eating. Going back to Plant based eating.

Once again joined WW, formally known as weight watchers

Once again joined WW, formally known as weight watchers

New Years resolutions, I don’t do them because I don’t need a specific day of the year to start something to make a change of habit. If I want something to change it isn’t the date that is going to make…

Good thing she gave me that because my second candle…
