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.

Probably it is more a nostalgic thing for me, but to be honest, I still like to eat that super fatty and sugary kind of mini cake from time to time, although I know how unhealthy it is.
