5 healthy things I needed this morning!

I’ve been working on making healthy choices since last October (which I’m sure I’ll be talking more about in the future). Internally, I’m doing alright (all those doctor-type tests came out perfect), but I am still medically obese. And buff. Don’t forget the buff.

We let it drain a little longer and it comes out the consistency of sour cream (but with a yogurt taste).
