A Natural Approach to Skin Wellness

We have all embarked on the health and wellness journey together by means of both visual and mechanical methods. Though some choose to only read wellness reports, others prefer practical approaches.

Mon Sheree Fashion Review

If you’ve been following Real Nutritious Living for a while, you’ll know I’ve been fortunate in that I am able to share healthy tips, recipes and other info on television and speak at other live events. That said, every time I have an upcoming event I am left with my closet doors wide open, scratching my head wondering what the heck am I going to wear!!  We’ve all been there.

I cannot tell you how thrilled I was!! I pulled some of my trendier pieces for approval and some things that have been hanging in my closet but I haven’t been quite sure what to do with or how to wear.

That being said, I hardly helped my mom in the kitchen, she is a very particular cook (I guess that is where I get my habits), so when I left for college I was pretty happy to have the Housing Dining Center (I know, have you ever heard anyone admit to that?!)

A little time for you each day…..

Yesterday at the gym I noticed a gal behind me who during the entire fitness class was on her phone texting and on Facebook. It got me thinking about how precious our time for physical activity is. This time is likely the only time we have each day for ourselves. A time to breathe, clear our minds, relieve stress and renew focus. This time is truly a precious gift in the world we live in, but how can we make the most of it? Continue reading “A little time for you each day…..”

Cinnamon is tasty, so that in and of itself is enough to eat it right? Well Cinnamon is also chalk full of manganese, which helps with bone formation, metabolism of energy from nutrients and decreases free radicals in the body. Continue reading “As if we needed another reason to love cinnamon….”
