Good morning friends!!!

Let the season, the weather and natures goodness guide your food choices!🧡 as we shift seasons into less light, and cooler temps, it’s very natural for the body to feel a bit laggy and blah. Nourishing yourself from the inside out will most definitely give your body a boost. Taking care of your digestion/gut health, and the associated immune system (yes 70% of your immune system is in your gut. Nutrition is a strong modulator of immune function.
