The Silicon Valley lifestyle is one of long busy days. This can make it very difficult to fit in self care, exercise, family time, medical treatment and regularly timed, nutritious meals. The importance of having readily available healthy meals and snacks is insurmountable to the physical body and mental state. Healthy eating is the foundation and fuel in which your busy life can flourish or topple.
At HeCares Integrative Medicine Center we try our very best to exemplify a balanced lifestyle so we can serve our patients through our knowledge and our experiences. When it comes to healthy food choices, I stress the importance of food prep for easy to achieve meals, include meal/snack ideas based on patients specific needs, and am more than happy to share my personal recipes.
With this in mind, HeCares is proud to introduce a healthy low sugar, nutrient and protein packed granola for sale at our front desk.
