 STEPHANIE GRANT, RHN  As a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, my mission is to show people that despite popular belief a healthy diet doesn’t mean ice burg lettuce and celery on repeat; but instead can include tons and tons of delicious, clean and energizing foods straight from mama Earth that will always keep your plate interesting! It’s an amazing concept, right? I mean, who doesn’t love the idea of a brownie that both tastes amazing and doesn’t make you feel the need to run ten miles out of guilt after eating it? Food, much like life, is all about balance.
