The Right Fit: What’s Yours?

The Right Fit: What’s Yours?

Everyone has their own vision of what being “fit” looks like. My entire life, I always thought being a size zero was exactly what I wanted to be, but let’s be real– I’m a size 6. I always was, always will be. And there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with that. For my first post on […]

Enjoy Delicious Aged Cheeses – Even If You’re Lactose-Intolerant!

God’s Love We Deliver: New York City

Being in New York and New Jersey right now as teams of volunteers are pitching in to help clean up and provide food and shelter for those affected by Hurricane Sandy (thank you!), I’m reminded more than ever of groups that put this much effort into helping people get much needed nutrition all year round. I’d like […]
