Word of the day (from Sarah!): Decadence (from thefreeDictionary.com)

(noun) A process, condition, or period of deterioration or decline, as in morals or art
Synonyms: degeneracy, degradation
Usage: The art of the late 19th century was an expression of the decadence and immorality of the ruling class.

Sassy uses the word: “When one eats processed foods that the body cannot handle there is a decadence of the gut.”

Sarah’s Bio

From marine biology in Belize to human physiology and disease, Sarah graduated in 2009 with her Bachelor’s of Science in Biology but was still unsure of what she wanted to do. A few months later, she attended a nutrition seminar and was completely entranced by its comprehensive impact on health (especially in conjunction with fitness). That was it. Starting in 2010, Sarah began contributing to both her gym’s nutrition blog and also developed her own blog. She applied for her Master of Public Health (MPH) and began independent research. While in school, she was hired as a food policy council coordinator and farm to school project manager. She graduated with her MPH in December 2012 and has since then been working to positively impact nutrition at schools and institutions, increase access to local, fresh food items, aid in children’s cooking skill development and, in general, help individuals to improve their health through whole food and fitness. In the next few years, Sarah is looking to pursue a PhD in applied nutrition and food policy. Her ultimate passion exists within nurturing the food-to-human connection & a lifestyle encompassing both physical and intellectual strength.
