Final Thoughts

Back in my student days, I used to eat a ton of baked chicken breast. Probably almost every day. No flavor – just plain and baked. What was I thinking?!

To be honest… I was thinking it was healthy. And sticking to those silly dietary guidelines that demonize anything with a bit of fat. Such a waste of so many meals!
