    It’s a rare condition, this day and age, to read any good news on your internet page. Unless you’ve stumbled upon the Cooking Light Diet Facebook Community, that is!

    In all seriousness, the internet is a dark and twisted hellscape of toxicity. And because of that, there are rules to follow:

    1. Never read the comments.
    2. Don’t click on a link if you don’t trust the source/know where it goes.
    3. Always clear your cookie history, or targeted ads will follow you to your grave.

    Fortunately, none of those rules apply in our Facebook Community. On the contrary, we like to refer to it as the happiest corner of the internet. Members there are almost unanimously kind, effusive, supportive, hilarious, and inspiring. And they absolutely love sharing what they’re cooking!

    Here’s a small sample of the internet’s happiest community. For more, make sure and join our Facebook Community, or subscribe to the Cooking Light Diet at the bottom of this post.
