The Gut Makeover


I’m almost finished this book: I’m impressed with it so far and ready to try it in June. I am sick of always feeling crampy and bloated after meals. I feel tired, have horrible acne and sore joints.

Colourful Pancakes Just Taste Better.


The new Club House Neon food coloring is really impressive. We have used it in spray bottles to colour snow or the steps outside. We have used it to colour the bath water or the bubbles in the bath. My sister thought of this one. Coloured pancakes with designs. The one that worked out the best was the heart pancake!…
