When buying ingredients at the grocery store the thought of what products are actually in season doesn't cross most people's minds. But, eating seasonally is SOOO important for your health!!
Your body is programmed to eat what is growing around you based on the weather.
Choosing local farmers (try the farmers market!), shopping the seasonal produce (usually it's found in bulk and at great prices!), and basing your menus on what is in season (which is exactly how we build our menus!) is a crucial step in living a healthy life. :)

This was one of the coolest things I learned while I was getting my nutrition degree.
The colors in plants mark the nutrients they contain. We can literally color ourselves healthy by eating all these colors,
COLOR is how we nourish our bodies!! Whatever you're eating day in and day out, it should be full of COLOR!
The nutrients in our foods are marked by color
More color means more variety of nutrients
Colors mean anti-aging and anti-disease
Do you think this is as cool as I do?
You have to follow the diet that works for YOU!
Personally, I don't subscribe to any particular diet. Here is what I do...
Finding the best "diet" for me is an ever evolving journey! I love trying new things:
All of this experimenting helps me see what I like best and what fits best in my schedule.
I am constantly learning new things about my body and my health and how I can help my clients apply what I am learning!
What works for you?
Healthy is different for everyone!
Start by figuring out what kind of balance will work for you in your life.
What adjustments do you need to make to feel good and look the way you want?
I am strict in certain areas: no gluten, low sugar, no fast food.
I am loose in others: wine, cheese, gluten free pasta.
This balance allows me to feel good, enjoy my food and look the way I want
This balance works beautifully for me in my life, what will work for you?
