 I’m sharing tips and inspirations to nourish your body, stay strong, and live your life vibrantly, as you age. 

Take a box of greens. Add a box of grape tomatoes. Drizzle dressing. Add cheese and toasted bread crumbs. What could be simpler?

You know eating lots of veggies every day is important for optimal health.

What gets in the way?

If you just feel like you don't have a lot of time to prep veggies, you're not alone. Some people say veggies just don't taste great. Either sound like you?

If so, you need this salad. It's so quick to make and a great way to get nutrient-...

You might not know this about me, but I have a bit of a thing for snacks.
