Wait, did you say bacon? Yep. Sure, bacon can be healthy - it all depends on quantity and quality. This is one of the things I am teaching my makeover participants. My friend Monica agrees. Does she eat bacon daily. Heck no. Does she buy bacon from a good source? You better believe it sista.
Monica helps people discover a balance in their health and diet. How do you teach others to do this? Well, you gotta teach yourself first. She began Radiant Breath Wellness in 2011 as a dedication and celebration to eating clean, healthy, and making real food in a quick and simplistic way . Her journey through yoga has brought a greater understanding of how eating affects the body and how movement and breath helps with digestion, calmness, and contentment. See below for a favorite makeover-friendly lunch recipe.
