So you may be asking, what does any of this have to do with Drink Your Greens and Minerals, or Botanical Balance. Well, this strikes a cord in a topic I am quite passionate about: Nutrition, wellness, and our quality of life; Healing families, individuals, children and our nation. 

There really is no reason for Americans to be as challenged as we are in the area of our health. We have the means, research, and the technology to help provide a higher quality of life for ourselves. "Being well" never should have become an after thought. The well being of our children should never have been compromised, and certainly not on this pun intended.

Please allow me to continue speaking frankly, but it's crazy that in the 21st century children don't know how to cook from scratch. -Who removed home economics. The average American does not plant (or pot) 10 edible items in their garden, children die as young teenagers from obesity, others diagnosed with diabetes. -Enough already. America must relearn moderation, and practice portion management. My company website gives you a starting point with fantastic products that deliver great results. Please, make a priority to care for yourselves and your loved ones. Reach out to others as well. The rewards will be tremendous! Drink Your Greens and Minerals so you can be in shape for the amazing things life has waiting for you, just around the corner.
