Another Powerful Ben Coomber Podcast … Kids Nutrition

It makes no difference whether you are a child, teenager or adult. The association with nutrition is often the same or similar in my opinion. The struggle is real. But does it have to be a struggle? I think not.

Ben Coomber’s podcast #186 with Jennifer Bulcock was powerful and it made me think, take notes and type like a mad woman. It struck so many chords with me regarding my own health & fitness journey as a child, teenager and adult.

Ben and Jenn also offered a FREE children’s nutrition video Here and FREE Nutrition for Kids e-book download Here.

What do Starbucks, Cheers, Nutrition and Goldilocks Have in Common?

. . . nothing really except they are all in this Blog.

Hats off to my local Starbucks (next to Stein Mart in the PTC Bubble)! I do my studying and work from there often since it’s a place where I know I’m always welcome and the people are friendly. It’s like the “Cheers” of coffee shops. Where everyone knows your name. For instance this morning I had placed a mobile order as I left my house; walked in; put my stuff in the usually spot; started walking to the counter to get my drink; and before I got around the corner it was hand delivered to me with a good morning & a smile. How awesome is that!
