Summer is almost here!

Well, it seems I haven’t blogged it quite a while!  I’ve done plenty of writing and nutrition work, but this one has been neglected and I apologize.  I have only the usual life excuses of work, kids, family- nothing earth shattering here, just life getting in the way of blogging.  While I hope to do better in 2019, I can also see ahead a year of new projects and fun challenges so please trust that I’m working with clients & teaching classes even though I may not be blogging regularly.

For questions, feel free to contact me!

Salad Dressings 101!

Get ready for SPRING with Homemade Salad Dressings!!

When: March 28, 5-6pmabrand_hnb_photo-img_0663_retouch-inversed.jpg
Where:  Freshii Boston
100 High St. #100, Boston MA  02110
Cost: $15 in advance via this link, or $20 at the door.

Salad is the go-to healthy lunch or dinner for many of us.  But why bother making it yourself?!

1. It’s EASY!  If you have 10 minutes you can make 2 dressings.  If you have 30 minutes, you can make 5-10 dressings.   No joke!

2.  Homemade dressings are full of valuable enzymes, which are vital to the daily functions of the body and often lacking from a typical diet.

3. Store bought dressings are full of rancid oils and preservatives.  Why take that health risk when it’s so simple to do at home?!

Join me at Freshii next Friday!
