Nigerian foods. Counting your calories 2

Happy democracy Day! Today a new dawn begins in Nigeria. The change we all anticipate, the change we voted for is finally here. I just hope and pray we won’t be disappointed. We have suffered enough in this 9ja biko. God help us.

As I always say, In life, there are a number of things  we can’t control. We can’t control the fuel scarcity. We can’t control the availability of electricity. But we can definitely control what goes into our mouths. For some people, they will argue that it’s not an easy feat.

But hey, it’s your eyes, your hands and your mouth. So what’s uneasy about it? We have to make efforts to know the nutritional value and benefits of our foods.
