My recent product to test out is the Amazing Grass plant-based Protein Superfood. I’ve been a vegetarian since 2012 and feel that for optimal health, we should eat a plant-based diet. I, therefore, was super stoked when I first learned about Amazing Grass!
Are you letting fear stand in the way of what you want to do/accomplish? In these two pictures, there’s about a 60 lb. difference. On the left, although I overcame my fear of fish and picked one up while at the fish market in India, I was holding on to 60 pounds of fat out of fear of failing.
Many people tell me that they can’t run, can’t lose weight, can’t this, can’t that. Let me tell you that you CAN! Defeat your fear, feel the fear, and do it anyway!
First and foremost, may I say, “Thank you,” to the many men and women who have sacrificed their lives for our country. We run FREE because of the BRAVE. Thank you!
