We all have our favourite easy foods for those time when we just cannot be bothered, our tried and true trusted comforters that we won’t let go when lazy kicks in.
As humans, we do to cling to what we know, just because we have always done so and that’s when naughty habits can kick in.. just because, honestly, it is easier.
