28. Take Time for Yourself
Christmas is a time for family and friends, but you must also take time for yourself.

We love Seaweed in our household. It is a crisp, flavorful snack, ideal in soups, salads, stir-fries and also with Primed ingredients rolled to make Primed Sushi for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
