I just got home from a week in Washington state for my Nutritional Therapy class and boy am I exhausted! I took my midterms last weekend and had a total of four days of class all day long. So as I’m sure you can imagine, I’ve been a little busy and a little stressed. Good news is I aced my midterms! Bad news is, I’ve got a pretty nasty cold.

Although I’m sure they are delicious, cast iron mac & cheese, fish & chips, and southern fried chicken don’t really have a place in my diet now. Actually they didn’t have ┬áplace in my diet then either because I was gluten free and dairy free at that point. So I’m pretty sure I just got a salad whenever we ate there.
