My partner in business and good friend, ask me today “when did all of this “health kick” stuff kick in”….lol. And what was the catalyst? Wow, I really had to think about that. My connection with nutrition and health was made years ago, when my children were small. The original catalyst was the state of my own health. I had several issues and an inherited heart condition that I didn’t want to rule my life (as it had my mothers’). It didn’t take me long to realize “you are what you eat”. I didn’t keep, sodas, cookies, chips or sugary cereal in the house. Sugar was a treat, as it should be. I DIDN’T LET THEM EAT AT SCHOOL! My kids joke, “the reason they love junk food is because they missed it growing up” – very funny! They are now 35, 34 and 27 and I’m a young, healthy, happy 53.
My mother died at the young age of 56 after her 4th heart attack – sad. I want to live much longer than that and break the cycle of bad health for myself, my children and maybe just maybe, be a part of breaking the cycle world-wide.
After much soul searching, I have finally decided what it is I want to do with the rest of my life – Bring awareness to as many people as possibly, the crucial role nutrition plays in our very “being”. Humans were masterfully designed by the master himself, to live happy and healthy. We were also given everything needed on earth to heal ourselves mentally and physically. Disease is not a natural state of aging – Not a natural state period! What happened? That is what I plan address on this blog as well share some great recipes, great quotes and have some great fun!
