I’m not going to lie to you. I work out 3/4 days a week and I need it. Seriously. I’ve never been the girl that stays stick thin even if she eats like a pig. Well, when I was little I was stick thin, but that was because I didn’t eat anything ^^” But when i eat like a pig, I become a pig. Kudos if you’re different and “I feel your pain” if you’re anything like me. That being said, I love working out. Especially because working out means I get to eat more food. It’s probably my main motivation; food. Like today’s thick BAKED (I never fry food because of the forever greasy smell) SWEET CHILI fries. That’s right. Sweet chili. We’re going there. Not just ordinary fries, but CRISPY fries covered in a delicious mix of herbs and spices. You have to try this. Asap.

P.S: Try the sweet chili mix on potato chips too!

    1. Haha thanks, Jasmine! I wouldn’t dare to claim these are a lot healthier, but they sure are delicious. Guaranteed. How’d it taste with kale? I’ve never had kale chips before :O Is it good? Do you fry or bake it?

      1. It was pretty good, crunchy and spicy, but weird as well – I know you can buy. Def have to make sure it’s baked long enough and patted really dry cause else it’s all soggy.

        1. Thanks for the tip! Soggy chips do not sound good ^^” Will search supermarkets for store bought chips first before I go into all the trouble to make it hehe
