pressure cooker for healthy food

Back in the late eighties and early nineties I remembered as a kid, the taste of vegetables and meat and even rice. They tasted so wonderful! As years went by, the taste was forgotten. Every year I tried newer dishes from different cultures in different restaurants in different countries, thus eliminating my childhood taste buds entirely.

Dark is the night, I can weather the storm
Never say die, I’ve been down this road beforeI’ll never quit, I’ll never lay down
See I promised myself I would never let me downSo I’ll never give up, never give in
Never let a ray of doubt slip in
And if I fall, I’ll never fade, I’ll just get up and try again
Never lose hope, never lose faith
There’s much too much at stake
Upon myself I must depend
I’m not looking for a place ashore, I’m gonna winWon’t stop me now, there’s still a ways to go
Some way somehow, whatever it takes I knowI’ll never quit, I’ll never go down
I’ll make sure they remember my name 100 years from nowWhen it’s all said and done
My once in a lifetime won’t be back again
Now is the time, for me to stand
Here is my chance, that’s why iSo I’ll never give up, never give in
Never let a ray of doubt slip in
And if I fall, I’ll never fade, I’ll just get up and try again
Never lose hope, never lose faith
There’s much too much at stake
Upon myself I must depend
