Most developed nations do not consider GMOs to be safe. In more than 60 countries around the world, including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union, there are significant restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMOs.
Before I became a health counselor, I thought I had a pretty good handle on my wellness because I exercised regularly and ate pretty well (or so I thought). Two things I did that greatly improved my wellness are 1) overcame my sugar addiction (sweets and other simple carbs) and 2) eating more greens. Overall, my energy increased, I trimmed down around the middle, my skin improved, and I don’t c
The first thing all of us need to remember is the fact that our bodies require fuel to operate. Much like a car if it has no fuel it will not run. Well, also like a car our bodies perform better on cleaner purer fuel. With that said could everybody eat the same food and get the same effect? The answer is no.

The reason for this is the pure and simple fact that everybody’s bodies are different.
Yes July is the month that marks the middle of summer. Even though we all know that summer does officially start the third week of July we all seem to look at summer is being June, July, and August.

I had the pleasure of speaking to a group of moms at with our local MOPs group (Moms of Preschoolers) about nutrition and exercise. I can only hope they got as much out of the program as I did.
