Health is having the energy to exercise and play with your kids, the mental clarity to excel at your job, and the focus to get what you want out of life. Most people don't know what it's like to truly feel well.  It's more than just the absence of disease.  Good nutrition and physical activity are the core to truly feeling well. Whether you're helping employees reach their goals or setting your own, Stephanie can help you find better nutrition as the first step towards a better life.

Since I cook for two, it's a go-to meal that can be turned in to lunch the next day, or re-purposed into two or three different dinners.  Try the leftovers in tacos, sandwiches, salads, enchiladas, and wraps.
