Greetings!

I am so excited to share my first newsletter with you and to announce the launch of Crazy Simple Wellness. After spending 12+ years in corporate America (almost 10 years as a road warrior), I realized it can be ridiculously challenging to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Without support, busy professionals have little time to implement the most basic nutrition recommendations (have you figured out how to squeeze 4-6 servings of veggies into your day?), let alone create a healthy lifestyle that is realistic and sustainable.

I know from personal experience that maximum health and happiness is achievable even while living our crazy lives. But, there isn't a one-size-fits-all approach. Healthy living needs to be customized to your individual health goals and circumstances. This is where Crazy Simple Wellness comes in! I am finally combining years of personal research and practice in healthy living with training as a holistic health coach to help the world become a happier, healthier place - one busy professional at a time! In a nutshell, our focus at Crazy Simple Wellness is to show busy professionals how to make simple, gradual changes so they can look, feel and perform their best everyday without letting deadlines, commuting/travel and long hours steal the best years of their life!

If you, or someone you know, is interested in living a more healthy life, please contact us.

Be well!
Danielle

Simply healthy stepsWhy eat more greens?  
eatgreensReason:  Your liver needs loads of insoluble fiber to Variety of delicious greenseliminate toxins (think: cholesterol, pesticides, and even smog) from the blood. Every serving of greens provides a huge boost of nutrients and antioxidants.

Benefits: Increased energy, better digestion and immunity and even lower cholesterol

Simple ways to boost your consumption:
  1. Always buy a side salad at lunch, eat it before your main dish, or as an afternoon snack
  2. Include greens in your morning smoothie (check out this month's good eats recipe)
  3. Add a green veggie to every dinner recipe (try sneaking spinach in any sauce or soup, turn taco night into taco salad night)
