Ask Darya Scale

Happy Friday friends,

Due to holiday chaos, For the Love of Food will be spotty (possibly non-existent) during the month of December. Don’t worry though, it’ll be back in January.

Today I want to try something a little different. You might know that there is a section on Summer Tomato called Ask Darya where people can publicly ask questions and I do my best to answer them.

Instead of writing out an answer, this week I decided to answer a question in video format so I could go into more detail and more people could benefit. It was fun for me to create, so I hope you like it.

The article she is referring to in the question is The Worst Thing You Can Do if You’re Trying to Lose Weight.

If this is something you guys enjoy I promise to get a better camera for future videos 🙂
