The Produce Chick (Street Articles Author)

I have been working in the Produce Industry for the past 15 years, selling fruits & vegetables to national retailers. This career has led me to understanding the nutritional values which produce has, not only for healthy diets and weight loss, but also for the prevention of certain medical conditions. Through the knowledge I gained in my career, as well as through my own journey for a healthier lifestyle, I began teaching and writing about the many health benefits which fruits and vegetables can provide us.

My hope is that I can help others in their quest for a healthier living; whether it be to lose weight, to incorporate more produce in everyday meals or even to learn to live life a little greener.
