continue to be strong andealthy and I think that one way to do this is to feed it the right kind of food and I don t think that eating old food is the right way to get enough nutrients etc We are what

starting this book I envisioned that I would be put off my food forever and I would still ave to eat it It was great then that it started with chicken or as I call them chickens it s a bit like the

by any stretch of the chalkNext up is bread This is the part that changed my life so listen up The bread we buy in the evil supermarkets is mostly factory bread that is full of air and water and so isn t as good for us as we d like to think even the brown ones with seeds on the top What we need is proper thickeavy bread made by real bakers with their real Destiny and Power hands So I started eating that And it s good I can t say I really feel anyealthier yet but when I get to one My Rocky Romance Diary (Diaries of Kelly Ann, hundred and I m still doing cartwheels I be sure to edit this
