Healthy Snack Idea For Busy Adults On The Go- Mediterranean Style

While just making it a little early to my gate so I can catch my breath, grab a coffee and donut and gather my thoughts I noticed a very attractive and together looking woman.

I didn’t know what this had to do with traveling, but I listened...
