  1. I’m trying to cut out sugar in 2017. I do really well on a gluten free diet since I have celiac disease but I enjoy baking. I feel my best on the paleo diet.

    • Eating clean definitely makes you feel fantastic! But I am very happy when I eat some of the less healthy stuff too ;) Just have to find a balance.
