Brooklyn is a very special place for me.

I visited Brooklyn this past Saturday. I visited my grandmother. I also saw my aunt Kay and her husband Neal. I saw them for the first time in a year or two. It was good to see my aunt Kay. I was able to visit with my grandmother for a bit. I went to the corner Bagel Pub to get some healthy juice and I brought some healthy juice back for my aunt Kay and myself. I could only carry two juices in my hands but I enjoyed my juice it consisted of kale, spinach, coconut water, strawberries, and cucumber. I got my aunt some carrot, lemon, apple juice and a shot of ginger on the side. I love that I am getting healthier. I lost quite a bit of weight but I also became semi-vegetarian. I am thinking about going pescetarian again. I had lost 40 lbs on my own and then went back to eating meat. I now realize the key to a healthy diet is eliminating meat from my diet. I am now officially starting my pescetarian diet.

    1. Oh my diet is simple it’s breakfast, lunch and dinner 3 meals but no meat just veggies and carbs and fish and seafood. I like sardines. I like any kind of fish especially salmon and flounder but also shrimp. I like sushi sometimes for lunch or veggie wraps. Going vegtarian or vegan is what I recommend. If not semi-vegetarian. Good luck.
