Food as Medicine: Nutrition & Mental Health – Guest Blog

If you follow me at all on any of my social media accounts you know that I personally feel proper nutrition can solve 90% of our problems with physical and mental health. I’m super excited to be featuring Kimberly Benny INHC of Revived Nutrition today on the blog! One of my favorite writers, Virginia Woolf, once said, “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well,”.

But time and excuses got in the way of me completing any of those things- so instead I’ll try this letter to you instead. At 5:39am PST you will turn 3. I still remember your birth.
