Nutrition and wellness

You've probably heard it said, "It starts with food", and it's true. Eating right is a cornerstone of a healthy lifestyle, and one of the biggest pieces of the puzzle. 

EAting Well

I love what Michael Pollan says about how we should eat- "Eat food, mostly plants, not too much."  Unfortunately, we have made eating healthy a complex matter when it should be an innate understanding of eating what's fresh, local and available to us. People living in traditional cultures have no idea what saturated fat, fiber and a calorie are, yet diabetes and heart disease are absent in their cultures. Processed food makes up about 70% of most of our diets and these foods contain an estimated 5,000 chemical additives. In short, if our great-grandmothers wouldn't recognize a food, we probably shouldn't be eating it. 

With our busy lifestyles, how do we find time to cook at home rather than grabbing the quickest option that tastes good? There are lots of time-saving tips and tools to truly make it easy to incorporate healthy eating into your current lifestyle. By teaching you how to navigate the grocery store for healthiest options, meal prep, and make basic staple recipes (homemade broth, dressings, smoothies, healthy treats), you'll be well on your way to learning how to nourish yourself with real food and slowly get rid of all the junk from processed foods!
