Food/Health

As an OT practitioner, I feel it is essential to live and preach for a healthy lifestyle.  I have been following healthy food bloggers for years and they have inspired me to eat healthier and improve my overall wellness.  It is my goal to not only help individuals carry out recipes, but to teach healthy, nutritious recipes.  Here are some of my favorite blogs:
