Crème Brûlée

If we are connected through Instagram you may have noticed I cut down and off some things in my daily nutrition. It started with some health issues some weeks ago. I had stomachache, felt sluggish and was in a bad mood all the time. I guess it was caused by stress I had at that time and you maybe know my stomach is my weak point.

So it will not only fills your stomach (and keeps you full until lunch), but also your soul (you know, chocolate is always for the youl, too :-))
