We all fall into our habits, our routines, our ruts.

Young children need to develop good habits that will be useful to them the rest of their lives. It is important to keep the lessons age-appropriate.

A lot of foreign people say, when asking about eating habits, 'What is your guilty pleasure?' I have no guilt. Whatever I do, I enjoy and it's the point. I think if you start to feel guilty about it, that's a problem. So, no guilty pleasures. I have pleasure and no guilt at all.
