It all began when a little boy’s allergies to common ingredients such as wheat, milk, rice, nuts, and eggs, sparked his parents to find alternative sources of nutrition. As they began transforming their diets by replacing eggs with chia seeds, rice with quinoa and incorporating a plant-based diet free from chemical additives many of their son’s unpleasant and sometimes frightening allergic reactions disappeared. The family as a whole enjoyed life with more energy, mental clarity and most importantly, their son continued to thrive! This was another lesson they learned, that wellness cannot be looked at solely through the lens of nutrition. Total wellness is finding balance and happiness in all aspects of life. All things in moderation, including moderation! Changing their diet was just the initial sprout!
