About this item
We all have crazy stories to share about life ... you know the ones we can laugh about later, but in the moment feel overwhelming, chaotic, or just plain insane? As a mom of 5 kids, I have the privilege of having a lot of these stories. I decided to take the humor of the moments and turn them into nutrition lessons we all can learn from. Most of my patients know exactly what they should do ... it's the execution part that trips them up.
Nourish, Eat, Repeat is a combination of stories from our crazy lives, supplemented with nutrition advice that is simple and practical, yet equally powerful and life-changing. It is a practical guide to help you navigate your way through the challenges of nutrition. This isn't a book about carbs, proteins, and fats, but rather a collection of tips and tools you can incorporate into your busy lifestyle right now. This is a book about execution.
As a mom and business owner, I know life can get chaotic at times. We all have the best intentions of doing the right thing, but sometimes time and energy get the best of us and we end up choosing the convenient road called survival. More times than not, food and health take a back seat to busyness and we are left feeling tired, sluggish, and depleted, both physically and mentally.
Be prepared for all of that to change because inside this book, you'll discover:
