Spring has sprung! Just in time for the new season, certified natural chef Patty James shares some simple changes that offer a lifetime of benefits
So many women I meet are determined to do whatever it takes to regain their good health. They fill their cupboards with healthier foods, revamp their diet and start a daily gym regimen — all in one fell swoop. A week later, they’re so sore they can’t walk and hungry from eating nothing but broccoli. The solution? Think small and sustainable. Big changes you can’t maintain will leave you feeling disappointed, paving the way to the Ben & Jerry’s. Instead, make one small change a week; soon enough, they’ll become ingrained habits that will produce a new, healthier you!
