5 Tips for Good Nutrition
How do you sort through the overwhelming amount of information regarding health, nutrition, diet and fitness? It seems there is always a new book, workout DVD or nutrition plan that will solve all of your health, weight, (fill in the blank) concerns in just minutes.
For as long as I can remember, I have had an interest in nutrition, fitness and living a healthy, balanced life. Ten years ago, while consuming what was considered by many to be a very healthy diet, I began experiencing significant physical health issues. With several medical appointments and tests revealing no cause, diagnosis or cure, I was desperate for light to shine on the answers and prayed for wisdom to distinguish truth amidst the many sources of information available.
As the information I needed became clear, I learned that vibrant health is not achieved by following the latest diet and is not gained or lost in just minutes. It is a daily commitment to make small, right choices.
Through a process of resetting my internal system, I discovered the importance of consuming fresh, whole foods that contain the exact nutrients our bodies need to thrive, eliminating processed, sugary, and GMO foods that sneak into our diets and learning about our food sources.
Looking back, I see years of small changes (and a few big leaps) that led to a truly healthy, whole and healed body. I now find it a blessing to create simple, nutrient-rich meals and share recipes and tips with others.
