Are you ready ladies?
Ladies, you can live your life, live it well, and not feel there’s anything wrong with it. You deserve happiness if you seek happiness. You don’t have to prove yourself worthy of happiness. You don’t have to earn a “black woman mammy merit badge” to be happy. You don’t have to justify a desire to be taken care of nor a disgust at disgusting behaviors – your own relationship happiness does not need to meet any trifling fool’s prerequisites.

You know……THAT HAWT TEACHER….Chile, bye.

What does sugar have to do with heart health? Well, sugar consumption in the United States is ridiculously high, and manufacturers scheme by hiding sugar in just about everything thing, which leads to us consuming extra calories and spiking our blood sugar, which over time leads to obesity and insulin resistance. Insulin resistance leads to diabetes, and diabetes damages all our internal organs–especially the heart. Combine that with high blood pressure and you have the perfect recipe for a heart attack.
