     My favorite subjects have always included nutrition, spirituality and overall health. Seeing a nice person who was also beautiful, happy, vibrant and in good health always fascinated me. Hearing about someone with a disease, obesity or cancer just broke my heart and made me resolve to find answers.  I studied nutrition formally for the first time in 1985, and then I finally became a Registered Dietitian in 2009.

     I've just always been dumbfounded by the amount of denial going on in people in so many areas of life, especially in how we care for ourselves and how we treat others. I believe that the state of the mind and our level of spirituality affect our physical health in more ways than we realize.  So many people are disconnected from God and from what God is all about - love, acceptance, and letting go of fear and bad habits and traditions. Our health and spiritual state is the prerequisite to everything else. Life is just too short and precious to waste it away with cheating yourself. And I'm definitely not immune to denial either! But the most important thing we can do is to accept that there's a lot of it going on and start from there.

     Now, thanks to this wonderful thing called the Internet, I can share a few of these thoughts. In my blog, No Denial For Dinner, I will offer up some tips on how to eat nutritiously, feel great and maintain a proper weight (a life-changing feat for many!), and how easy that can be with a few deep-down changes. I'm hoping that maybe if I post these thoughts, recipes, videos and other things here they will maybe help a few other people.

      Thanks for stopping by! And Here's to love, health and happiness!
