I know we're barely into August, but for many students preparing for the new school year has already started. While packing knapsacks and sharpening pencils are important, don't neglect the most essential tool for optimal learning - your health! Check out this link from Webber Naturals for some great tips - it's written for collegians but every student (or student of life!) from 5 to 95 can benefit from following the suggestions!
A Student's Guide to Health
Never stop learning, and strive to be the best you can be every day!
- I started my "working life" as a holistic and allopathic nutritional consultant with a love of cooking. Teaching the value of wholesome meal choices to families became close to my heart after I battled a long history of struggles with weight and health, and the passion for teaching led me into where I am now. My blog, which focuses on "bringing good taste to healthier food" through creative use of whole grains, fresh produce and acknowledging the importance of the occasional treat, also features a wealth of "specialty diet" friendly recipes for gluten-, egg-, dairy- and sugar- tree nut-free items that everyone can enjoy without alienating those who need them.
Overall, I want to bring back the desire for good quality, homemade, (mostly) healthy food into the hearts and kitchens of families so that the next generation will be less box-reliant than mine. I firmly believe that any “homemade” food, even when labelled as "naughty", is a more wholesome treat than pre-packaged, cookie-cutter junk. With the knowledge of good food (and how to cook good food) as a base, a healthy lifestyle can follow, and then anything is possible!
Today, my love for teaching is branching out even further - I'm in Montessori training to solidify my love for the system and working with children and families!
