I really don’t know if these new principles I’m writing out are going to be my final word on the subject. The idea of ZooFit is it is ever-growing, ever-evolving.

I’ve been reading quite a few books helping me in my quest to find a perfect Eating Green model. So far, I’m finding that a little more difficult than I anticipated. My research and experience is showing there is no “perfect model”, but taking a little from each program and expert I discover. Read More “Eat Good Fat, Get Fit”

Meal Prep Saves Lives.
Well, it saves forests. And saving forests saves lives- animals who live and depend on forests, and even us mighty humans. Without trees, we would literally not be able to breathe, so trees and the forests are kind of a big deal. Read More “Meal Prep Saves Lives”
There’s something about living a locavore life which excites me. My husband and I not as frugal as some friends. We splurged on a 28-week CSA, and I’m willing to pay extra at the farmers markets. But sometimes I like the free stuff.
