In an society that sometimes seems polluted with negativity, we each possess the incredible power to dictate our own realities based on what lens we are looking through.

Nutrition: are we as compliant as we think we are? With formal diets fading out and the idea of implementing sustainable lifestyle changes on the rise, the phrase “it’s all about balance” has been thrown around quite a bit.
