When you run a blog about desserts and comfort food, people ASSUME that you eat cakes and pastries all day and must weigh a gazillion pounds!
Someone out there in cyberspace messaged to ask if I am over-weight! Yikes!
I LOVE desserts and quite frankly, I eat something sweet every day but I also work out and look after my health.
I also try to drink at least one big glass of a healthy smoothie everyday.
It’s usually a fruity one like this this frozen mango smoothie recipe because the veggie ones have such an icky color…lol.
