USE NUTRITION TO

OUR LIVES are BUSY and STRESSFUL

food may be last on our lists 

There is no question that nutrition has a major role in stress, disease, and energy levels.
With our busy lives, it gets harder and harder to make nutritious choices on a daily basis.
Marketing and advertising leads us to believe we can never make healthy choices
without certain foods or supplements.
In reality, a nutritious lifestyle is dependent upon many factors- lifestyle, preferences, schedules, budget, and physical abilities.
It is not dependent on a specific food or supplement. 
But how do you know what your individual nutrition needs are both physically and mentally?
