You’ve pledged to be healthy. You’ve pledged to stay away from processed foods. You’re no longer consuming refined sugar. You’re a wellness warrior on a mission to have the cleanest body possible … but gosh darn it, you’re fanging for something to eat to tide you over until the next meal. You need a snack – some kind of comfort food. The voice inside your head is pleading with you to betray your health pledge. “To hell with the clean body”, it’s saying. But you know better. You know that there is a better way. For you know, that being healthy has nothing to do with deprivation. Oh yes, welcome to the world of healthy comfort foods. Let me show you around.Read More

She is a super woman.Read More

Kim is also skilled in aromatherapy, fitness, nutrition, and beauty, and has her own line of essential oils and natural skin care called Twenty8.Read More
