Update update UPDATE

So, it’s been a while since I’ve been on this platform but many things have taken a slight turn as of late. For one I no longer work my 9–5 job. It took way too much of my time and I was losing way too much sleep, face it, the restaurant business is quite frankly not for me. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE to cook but I’d rather cook for myself as a nutritionist rather than for a corporation that pays barely anything but minimum wage.

Working outside of home took away so much time from…

Instead of eating sensibly to make up for it, you penalize yourself by purging, fasting, or exercising to…

A Few Facts To Consider

Serious topic here guys!

Sound eating isn’t about rigid nutrition doctrines, staying unrealistically skinny, or depriving yourself of the foods you adore. As an alternative, it’s about feeling excellent, having more energy, and keeping yourself as sound as possible- all of which might be attained by learning some nutrition basics and using them in a way that works for you.

Those stories of not skipping breakfast are 💯 valid!!

The Boost I received after a long day of work.

As I walk into my old apartment from work, I could feel my feet throbbing beneath me. It’s been an exhausting day for me.

Work was tiring, as usual, especially now.

That kitchen was a HOT kitchen

It felts like a furnace. I was so happy to leave that place and come to my safe haven. My Home!

My body is aching, and it’s as if I had a full-body workout, my abs are on fire.
