Something to Think About:


March is National Nutrition Month. Use this month to revamp your diet. Make sure to get 7-13 servings of fruits & veggies daily. I cup of raw or 1/2 cup cooked equals one serving. Reduce or eliminate processed foods, artificial ingredients and refineds sugars from your diet. And of course make sure that you are getting at least 10 glasses of water daily. I guarantee that you will feel better.
