As a breast cancer survivor turned health coach and natural food chef, healthy eating and living are integral to my everyday life. I get this question all the time: "Mia, what do you eat in a day?" So, here's a typical day for me. Sure, I will splurge now and then on the occasional cheeseburger, but I try as a habit to make every day count. Each meal is an opportunity to flood my body and my cells with great nutrients and antioxidants, and eating powerful foods has made me feel like I have an intrinsic, important role in my own fight against cancer.
I LOVE spending my time reading medical studies from the National Institutes of Health and different scientific journals; it's important for me to be up-to-date on the new strides science is making when it comes to nutrition. I like to believe that the answers for disease are right in front of us and I know that plants are one of our most valuable, magical assets. Therefore, I try to consume as much plant food as I can.
