After recently stumbling across Livia’s Kitchen via Instagram, I was in awe with the array of product offerings. Needless to say I ordered more than enough of these scrumptious biccy boms. Before I placed an order online I managed taste these boms prior to purchase.It happened to fall on a day I was feeling sorry for myself, treading down the freefrom asle I saw this peeking through.

  • What I Eat In A Day | Dairy & Gluten Free Edition

    Breakfast: Before I decided to completely cut out both dairy and gluten, I’ve always appreciated a bowl of cereal accompanied by a piece of fruit, (typically banana).
