Hi! I’m Mary.
An excerpt from my kindergarten teacher’s evaluation: “Food is very important to Mary. If she doesn’t like her lunch it ruins her entire day.” It was true then, and it’s true now.
I love food! I love the field of nutrition. And I love helping people discover the power of food to make their lives better. Food and lifestyle choices can give you more energy, help you feel better, prevent illness, and maybe even reverse certain disease states. (Side effects may also include looking better!)
Tune in regularly, join the conversation, boost your knowledge & your health.
