My name is Cindy and I have been interested, fascinated, and sometimes obsessed with nutrition and fitness since I was a young girl. As a teen I was diagnosed with hypertension. I was young, thin, and fit. It was at that point that I began to understand how genetics and family history influence health, and I wanted to take control. Now with a degree in Nutrition and Foods, I strive to do my best to use what I know to give my family nutritious meals.
I often hear we should eat this or that because it is good for us. Well, I’m not satisfied with that…I want to know why. So, throughout this site, I provide informational posts that feature the nutritional benefits of foods.
Pick Fresh is based on eating whole foods and eating green.
- Consuming whole foods means avoiding pre-packaged convenience foods with additives or artificial colorings.
- Eating green promotes sustainability by consuming natural foods, preferably from local farmers.
I believe that food that is good for you should not only look good, but most importantly taste good too. Readers will get recipes of foods that we actually eat, so everything is kid tested and family approved. You will find that Pick Fresh Foods features recipes for healthy foods and some indulgent ones. I aim to show that balance and moderation is key to living a healthy life.
I hope that you enjoy the recipes and maybe learn something new along the way.
Pick Fresh Foods…We have only this one body, we should do our best to treat it well.
