Got milk? I hope not. It turns out that milk does NOT do a body good. Unfortunately, dairy is the MOST common food allergen we face (not the Epi-pen kind of allergic reaction). 75% of people are genetically unable to properly digest diary.

We want to eat right but we often eat junk. 20 bucks says you want to eat healthier and feel better. But candy and desserts beckon, "I'm hot, sticky sweet, from my head to my feet,
Do you have a favorite Little Debbie snack? Yes, that is ironically funny to me. I love Oatmeal Cream Pies. Second to that is Swiss Cake Rolls. Growing up, my mom was a big fan of equal treatment. Each of the 4 kids had their own Tupperware container (mine was the yellow one; do you remember those Tupperwares from the 80’s?).
