However, I don’t feel restricted–I consume a large variety of other foods that leave me more than happy and satisfied. I love finding creative new ways to make meals or save money on groceries, so I thought I should share some of those tips with you!
Sustainability is, by definition, the avoidance of the depletion of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance. I think it’s our responsibility to move away from the harmful practices that are so common and move towards a more possible future.
I have come such a long way with my personal journey of loving my body and myself. Currently, I’m on such a high of self-love and I can feel my entire life philosophy shifting. Okay, that’s a big statement. But I believe it! One statement that keeps resonating around in my head is:
my body is a temple, not a tomb
There’s no denying it—I love you. Always have, always will. You’re the perfect amount of sweetness with a light taste that goes well with anything! You’re just filling enough to be the perfect snack. You’re versatile and a fairly long-lasting fruit. And only $0.44 per pound! No one could replace you, bananas. I’m upset that horrible Americans devastated Central America to get you, but I know that’s not your fault. Continue reading “A Love Letter to Bananas”
