Our bodies are pretty amazing machines. And, it’s no surprise to anyone reading here that what we put in our bodies directly influences how we look, feel, and perform. Here are 5 of my favorite foods to keep on hand (to mix and match) for fast snacks or mini meals to keep our bods movin’.

It is so personal. Why do YOU exercise? Most will say that having a movement practice is one of the cornerstones to a healthy lifestyle based on being in tune with your body on multiple levels. A lifestyle that promotes longevity incorporates all things healthy, including food choices, supplements, and a clean environment - MIND and BODY.
