NUTRIENT DENSE FOODS
with Longer Shelf-life
This featured article is brought to you by the collaboration of Tenoverall, and Registered Dietitian, Jacquelyn Hackett, MS, RDN.
In response to COVID-19,
I have curated a list of foods to help you minimize your options to a selected few in order to stay healthy and well-nourished during these critical times.
As a Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutritionist who have been in this practice for at least five years, I have only taken my health, and, the health of others more seriously. Our health and well-being is something we often take for granted, that is until we face the consequences of illness or physical ailments. In recognizing this, I invite you to stand with me in prioritizing the health of our nation by beginning with ourselves. We have the ability to be healthier and stronger every day no matter what level you begin.
I'm rooting you on in striving for the best!

This health supplement is often combined with zinc and vitamin C, used to fight off flu symptoms. It is rich in Vitamin C, dietary fiber, phenolic acids, flavanols, and anthocyanins-- all of which reduce inflammation, restores damaged cells and tissue in the body, and helps boost the immune system overall.
There are many studies on this natural homeopathic that support its many health benefits, however, further research is needed in order to determine it's true potential. There are also health risks and side effects to taking this supplement, so please do your own research accordingly.

My name is Hetty, thanks for stopping by!
If you are anything like me, you are constantly seeking for a peace of mind, while, fulfilling your purpose in life. Sometimes, you find yourself caught up in the every day hustle, and, you want to take a breath just to become centered again.
I know how it feels to want something so badly that you would do anything in your power to achieve it. I have been through the mountains and valleys of "getting healthy" - mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I am still on my journey, although time and time again, I have come back to the same remedies that cure me from my sufferings. These remedies are the same practices that I teach to help you achieve your optimal way of being.
"Healthy" is not only a state of being, but, a state of mind, and, the way of life. It is not only moving and eating well, but, thinking and knowing in abundance. You once believed that everything was incredibly fascinating, and, anything was thoroughly possible. Today, your ability to tap into your inner wild-child, is the way you will thrive in the purest form of being.
Let us commence...

I get to choose my meals in advance and can substitute depending on my diet restrictions or allergies. This keeps me on track with my healthy living. The meals are delicious and I get the right amount of veggies, protein and carbs. Thank you Hetty for making my busy life easier and helping me eat healthy.
