My journey started in 2005 when I was pregnant with my daughter. My family history includes a lot of metabolic syndrome issues such as diabetes, high cholesterol and hypothyroidism. Just a few of the medical issue I never imagined I could avoid. Years and years of research and dietary lifestyle changes brought me here, where I am today. My biggest recent accomplishment is removing my thyroid meds. Until you experience the joy of this kind of accomplishment it will be hard to understand the deep happiness and amazement this brings. We need a better understanding that "Food IS medicine" and I'm thrilled to be a small part of that voice. Join me in the journey to better health, fitness and well-being. It's never too late to start as today is always a new day!
