Changing Your Life for GOOD - Become a HEALTHIER YOU

When a client asks me "what can I do to be healthier" there are sooooo many things running through my head. Where do we begin? First, we look at their lifestyle - what does their daily routine look like? What do they eat? What times do they eat? What do they do during the day? Where do they work? What is their relationship with friends/family? This may seem pretty obvious in terms of getting an idea of what a person is exposed to on a daily basis and a good starting point to finding out what may be causing them to be unhealthy - physically and emotionally. However, we go MUCH deeper than the surface! Where did they grow up? Were...

I have a few different spots around town that I hit up to find organic foods, and Aldi is one of them. However, not all organic products are equal! I try to avoid certain ingredients as much as possible and get foods as close to the whole form as I can. Of course, I recommend that you make all...

Sweet Treats have never tasted so good...ICE CREAM RECIPE INCLUDED!

For those of you who know me, you know nothing gets me more fired up than hearing about CALORIES. (Ok, so there are a lot of other topics that do also, but this one is high on the list!) "How many calories are in that?" Or "oh my goodness, I shouldn't eat any dessert" or "how many grams of fat are in that?" I'm telling you right now to just stop it. It's time to stop that old way of thinking that has been ENGRAINED into our brains that fat makes us fat. Out with the obsession of counting calories and it's time to start just looking at where those calories are coming from. So you say, "well, if I want to lose...

Nice to Meet You!

I figured before I start pouring out my life story, opinions, reflections and recommendations, I would take a moment to quickly introduce myself! Hi. I'm Jenny. Welcome to my blog and thank you for joining me on my journey to health! A bit about myself...I grew up in Jackson, MI and graduated from Grand Valley State University, where I lived right before moving to Elkhart. My husband, Andy Weaver, and I opened The Moringa Tree four years ago on April 1, 2013...That's right...April Fool's Day but it was no joke! We got married the year after in 2014, and now we are proud parents of our sweet little 6-month old baby girl, Adelynn Olivia Weaver, born August 3, 2016. Needless...
