BALANCE IS NOT SOMETHING YOU FIND, IT’S SOMETHING YOU CREATE
Everything has a natural equilibrium. When we interfere with faddy diets and restrictive behaviour, we throw our balance out. Everything in moderation and you will find that you crave a plethora of foods, from chocolate to bitter leaves. Try it, really LISTEN to what your body tells you, It’s kind of magic that way…
