Your Whole World Changes When You Do This

Today I am celebrating. I’m celebrating what happens when someone makes a powerful choice to make her self-care a priority, like my new client has done by letting go of fear and doubt and stepping forward to make a commitment to take charge of her health.

Butternut Squash with Black Rice and Mushroom Stuffing
