Speaking of greasy, OMG Baked Potatoes in Houston is the best 😋 But, unfortunately I needed to clean my system. Studies show processed meat leaves the body more fatigue. The last time I decided to cook chicken wings I could literally see the bruises and torment that animal probably endured during the farming process. It was almost, traumatizing. luckily, I have the desire to improve. Not playing any games, I brought healthy organic food. Mostly green vegetables and fruits.
