Since I can remember, I’ve always struggled with self-worth and balance within my mind and body. As I got older, I noticed more and more the effect it had on my job, relationships, and overall mindset. I was unmotivated, depressed, and disappointed. One day I woke up and decided that I was tired of feeling that way, and that I needed to make a change to take back my life. My best friend was a member at exhale and had been recommending their classes to me, so I thought, “Why not? I’ll give it a shot.”

4 ways that going big on greens, grains and beans really impacts your overall wellbeing. Plant-power is taking center stage these days and rightly so! Here’s why: Reduced inflammation Inflammation at its core is a good thing. It is the body’s way of calling the cavalry (aka white blood cells) to come to the rescue, repairing tissue, fighting viruses and bacteria. However, when we eat foods like sugar and refined grains, that provoke an adverse reaction, we are keeping our white blood cells on amber alert which over time causes pain, fatigue and is the pre-cursor to chronic disease. A plant-based diet, heavy in whole grains and loaded with anti-oxidant properties from vegetables, fruits and legumes reduces inflammation,

I’m the first to admit that, in many ways, I was in pretty bad shape.

And I mean more than the 35 pounds I’d gained.

Despite the assurances of my A-list book agent, my latest book proposal hadn’t sold (I’d had 8 previously published), and a relationship with a business partner went deeply south.
