Ending My Complicated Relationship With Food

Food and I have a love-hate relationship. Mainly love, I won’t lie. Nothing gets me going more than biting into a slice of watermelon and having the juice ooze down your chin, or the folded, glossy scrambled eggs in your fried breakfast after a night out.
