My family's health is one of my most important priorities. And if I’m being honest, the most direct way to positively impact my family’s health is through food.
If I continually allow my children to eat processed foods with harmful ingredients such as artificial flavorings, food dyes, and high fructose corn syrup, they will experience trouble with their health.

My favorite drink at the local juice bar is called Roots Remedy. It’s a lovely juice made of beets, apple, lemon, and ginger. I enjoy the way that it’s both refreshing and warming at the same time.

A few months ago, my mom made kielbasa and cabbage for a gathering at her house. I thought it was out of this world. Shortly after, I was out for a run and because it was rainy and cold, by the time I got back to my parent’s house, I felt a chill in my bones. I heated up the kielbasa and cabbage and not only did it warm me up, but it made me feel so healthy and satisfied.

Repeat after me: Fat does not make you fat! Did you know good quality fat is actually the preferred source of energy for the body?
