First Post

Hi all and welcome to my blog! I am a single mom of two very active kids and finished my Kinesiology- Health Science bachelors. My focus was in nutrition, wellness, and public health. I stumbled into this field through my daughter; she  was diagnosed with ADHD. With that, I researched ways to augment the benefits my daughter’s treatment plan through nutrition. Reading up on the nutrition demands of the ADHD brain and how it differs from others. By the time I had to pick a major it was a “no brainer”, Health Science. The title of this blog is a take on Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem, “Joy and Temperance and Repose, slam the door on the doctor’s nose.”  😀

The content of this blog will be on nutrition, wellness, and anything in between with an educated consumer’s perspective.  With that in mind, it’s my hope that you will find a” like-minded” voice (or NOT) on some the common issues regarding health and nutrition. I plan to post weekly articles, as things progress I may post more if time allows. If there is a subject that you wish to know more information about I will be happy to research and post my take on the topic. Ideas and topics are welcome, it is my wish to have topics of interest and not recycle the information that is already out there. As for ways to contact me, I’m still debating… Thank you  for stopping by.
