As February's Heart Month winds down, let's not forget that March is Nutrition Month! Let's make sure we keep our hearts (and the rest of our bodies) in prime condition - as much as it may not seem like it, Spring is just around the corner!
5 Foods for a Healthy Heart & Tasty Ideas for Adding Them to Your Diet | Holley Grainger, MS, RD
- 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!
