Keeping It Real

Eating real food is one of the best ways to get or stay healthy.  Seems pretty simple, doesn’t it?  Except it’s not!  We have all become accustomed to eating processed foods.  With that, we have greatly increased our risk of suffering from a chronic disease.  Real food supplies nutrients our bodies are so desperately seeking.  A healthy, well-nourished body is less likely to get sick.  Transitioning from a processed to a whole foods diet can be overwhelming.

      I love easy “hacks”. Smoothies and collagen peptides are my ultimate hack for packing in the nutrition with one small punch 🙂
