The past year has been one of the biggest learning curves in my life.. It consisted of many personal discoveries, improving my social skills, being polite yet assertive, opting for lazy short-cuts in the kitchen, time management (though not very successful with the blogging!), the ability to cook even though utterly exhausted, the ongoing work, studying for a masters in Human Nutrition and very importantly to reference or back a statement with a reliable source. No matter how strong or logical an argument can be, in the world of science and dealing with academics a good reliable source is essential, otherwise all your efforts would go in vain. Many years of intensive research goes into scientific literature, meaning it cannot be ignored, even though some schools of thought think otherwise.
