Rita believes that nutrition is not just a job, but a way of life and a way in which she gets to share her passion of cooking and nutrition with others everyday. Rita is a runner, a yogi and a certified yoga teacher. Rita considers wellness to be multidimensional and that nutrition is a piece of the puzzle that can influence all other aspects of health. What we eat not only affects us physically, but mentally and emotionally. Piecing together wellness means looking outside the box and understanding how mental health, physical health, stress management, sleep and even spirituality effects us as a whole.
