Claire’s Cacao and Chia AmazeballsFor Claire, Lent has always been an important part of the calendar. She has memories of her Grandma Ann immersed in the church community and according to Claire "she loved to bake, yet she always fasted from cakes, biscuits and the “sweet stuff” for 40 days and 40 nights during the Lenten period".
