Looking for an easy meal replacement or an energy boost for before or after your workout? Health Coach graduate Amber McElduff has a recipe that’s good for you and tastes delicious, too.
Amber, who graduated from the Health Coach program in June 2017, took the course because of her interest in total body health, including proper nutrition. At an early age, she was diagnosed with hirsutism, a hormonal imbalance. The doctor did not give her any information on how she could incorporate healthy choices into her diet. Amber went through a period of anorexia along with a friend who lost her life to the disease. Determined to get back on track, she further educated herself on healthy dieting and exercise.
She now wants to show others how having a healthy body is their greatest asset. Here, Amber shares one of her favorite healthy recipes.
