“Better nutrition is actually simple, even though it doesn't often feel that way. I'm committed to helping you achieve better health through making better nutrition simplified for you! I encourage you to be a qualitarian, which means that you choose to be the gatekeeper for what goes into your body. Don’t feel deprived but instead empowered when you turn down a veggie burger with genetically engineered ingredients or hexane to enjoy one made from organic quinoa and mushrooms, or a wild salmon burger or a grass-fed burger. Being qualitarian means you should take pride in being smarter than the front of a package or a commercial that tells you what it wants you to know but doesn't tell you the rest of the story.”
