When I was a kid I was a total food sneaker. When my parents were asleep or no one was looking I would shuffle into the kitchen to grab a few bites of my favourite things. Now, being the odd child I was, my favourite things to sneak were leaves of romaine lettuce, banana flavoured medicine and the original All Bran cereal. I know what you’re thinking, what was wrong with me right? I’m not quite sure myself. 

My love of these childhood favourites, as strange as they were, have trickled in to my adult life. Although I have given up the banana medicine, I’m still obsessed with lettuce, love All Bran, and bananas are my favourite fruit.
