Black Bean Blender Brownies!

Ahem, this is a little personal...and I do apologize if I offend, but I was wondering if you enjoy a daily 'evacuation'? I know it is one of those topics that feels a little embarrassing to talk about but alas, I must go there! I see many clients for whom, a daily bowel movement is [...]
