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 have seen 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!
Whether your goal be weight loss, fitness, disease management and prevention, or overall healthy living, I hope you enjoy and are able to encourage yourself and your loved ones reach personal goals and live a happier, healthier life!
