  1. Hi there! I’ve been a happy follower and been noticing you use a lot of black pepper.
    A nutricionist advised me few years ago we can’t digest black pepper, so instead should use white pepper. Thought you should know and check for yourself. Have a great one and pls keep bringing these awesome recipes!
