This means 0 energy spent worrying about last week, 0 energy worried about t

The harsh truth about sugar.

The harsh truth about sugar. February 25, 2016

Most people have a love affair with the sweetest thing. Sugar. Everyone's favorite ingredient. I too am a part of this group, because sugar is awesome.
