Dr. Kristine Wolski discusses adult education and specializing in understanding how to help people grow, learn, share and change. She eventually focused on harnessing the power of narrative to affect real change in peoples lives.

We sit down with foodie and recipe creator Kimberly Menard who shares her thoughts on healthy and nutritional eating. After cutting meat out of her diet three years ago, her quest to find more energy from food began. Kim then started ‘Guac till you drop’ on social media to help inspire others to eat healthy and get the nutrition they need. With over 2000 followers on Instagram, Kim is known for trying new recipes and experimenting with food.
“Everyone should have a strong, foundational knowledge of nutrition,” Kim says. “Often times what we think is healthier actually isn’t. It’s important to understand what we are buying and why we are eating it.”

We all have a pretty good idea of what we would call that nurturing system within ourselves to take care of and love children and other people that we love and that we want to take care of and appreciate in our lives. We can aim for that in ourselves in a way. Literally just take that same thing and you turn it on yourself and you can feel compassion for yourself.
