Wellness At Your Fingertips:
This site is designed to be your personal health and wellness portal. Everything is “well” considered from delicious wholesome recipes, to clarity on the latest scientific health studies, sound advice on how to know and become the expert of your own body. This is where nutrition myths end and real health information begins.
HWH’s nutrition philosophy is simple: Ditch the diet and opt for a variety of whole, nutrient-dense foods — the more colors, the better!
Rigid, black-and-white thinking about food and health often creates a vicious cycle of crash dieting followed by a binge-fest. The body is biologically programmed to respond to restrictive diets this way due to our fight-or-flight response, leaving us feeling defeated and hungry for a better approach.
Food is essential. We need it in order to live, grow, and survive. It is used to celebrate and mourn, to evoke memories and strike business deals, and to care for loved ones. Food has cultural, social, emotional, and physical ties. Food is universal. Nothing more connects us than food.

It’s time to not be stumped by what to eat and shift from a one-dimensional idea of nutrition to a more elastic one. HWH’s approach to health is different: we serve simple advice on eating well and believe in order to get back to the basics of nutrition and wellness, we must get back into the kitchen.
