Welcome to my blog!
I have been a registered nurse for over five years and work in the Intensive Care Unit. I always considered myself a "healthy" and active individual, however, it wasn't until I educated myself on my diet that I noticed immense changes in my body, mind, and overall wellness.
I don't mean my 'diet' as in the countless fads people SWEAR by.
And I certainly don't mean those "magic" pills that promise you to look like Kim K in 3 days.
I refer to my diet as in the food and drink I choose to put in my body every day. I have modified my behaviors. I made it a lifestyle.
Healthcare is constantly using evidence-based practices and continued education to improve our knowledge and understanding of disease processes and how we can better prevent and manage them.
Working in the ICU, I see people at their very worst. Nutrition and regular activity plays such a large role in so many illnesses and it hurts me to know that most people do not even know where to begin with it.
I created this blog to share my passion, knowledge, and experiences on a healthy lifestyle based on sound nutrition and regular physical activity.
I truly love to help others, and what better way than to spread this information to those who WANT it!
I hope you enjoy and are able to help yourself and your loved ones reach personal goals and live a happier, healthier life!
