    Do you find yourself lost on how to eat healthier amongst the noise of online and social media information? Our bodies are amazing machines, but it’s important to eat the right kinds and amounts of foods that will in turn promote wellness and health by promoting specific anti-inflammatory pathways. To learn more about eating healthier and how to turn on your body’s natural antioxidant-making powers, read my article “Nutrigenomics.”


    Nutrition counseling services are a resource available at no cost to all SU students, staff and faculty. Call to arrange a private and confidential session. Stop by our website and make an appointment with me today!


    We’d love to hear from our readers! Are there nutrition questions you have or subjects related to nutrition you would like to learn more about? Email your questions, suggestions and inquiries to for publication in our next issue of ‘The Zest.’
