I encourage you to experiment with your food and make it your own since after all, you’re the one who will reap the affects of it, good or bad.

This is why in my “Nutrition and Health Coaching” Programs I help my clients navigate around health hurdles that may be limiting your emotional enjoyment of food while enhancing your “brain-body” function daily by teaching the “How” of food preparation!  Stay tuned to my upcoming article, “Do You RESPECT your food?”
