Maria has a genuine and patient personality that makes her easy to work with, and she was very responsive to any questions I had about any aspect of the program I was on. She does not work on a one-size-fits-all way, and worked to customize the program to my needs and to how my body was responding to the supplements. I would totally recommend her and work with her again in the future.

Jerk Chicken with Cucumber, Red Onion, Parsley, and Rice Salad

I love this dish. It’s a fun summer dish for the grill.  The leftovers are really great for hot summer days. The nice part about this dish is that the apple cider vinegar (both in marinade and in salad) and the spices help neutralize the carcinogens created by...
