August 20, 2014By 3 Comments

Call me a pessimist, a glass-half empty kind of girl.  Call me whatever you want, I just like to say I’m realistic.  I am a science minded person.  I follow research from reputable sources, including when I offer nutrition information.  I look to sources that are provided by highly respected organizations and agencies in our […]
