"There is so much information out there on what we should and shouldn't be eating. Recommendations seem to change every month or so! Everyone has an opinion, blog, book - and attests to incredible health from their chosen 'diet'.

I educate and create awareness; I don't fear monger. My recommendations are based on research, physiology, cultural/historical context, individuality, and common sense!"
