The next step

It's been a long time since I posted. Summer has been a time of change and personal growth and now I find myself at a new crossroads. The nanny job I have been greatly enjoying is coming to a close.

Because it is better for your body and the environment. Here are a few quotes from Joshua Rosenthal’s book Integrative Nutrition: Feed your Hunger for Health and Happiness: Fresh, organic produce contains more vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other micronutrients than intensively farmed produce.
