Hello! Welcome to my blog! My name is Joanna. I'm a Los Angeles-based wife and mother, a college professor, a chef and baker, a skincare formulator, a gardener, a survivor and thriver. Following a colorectal cancer diagnosis five years ago, I did what I knew best: research. I devoted all my time to studying how I can improve my chances at survival and recovery, and how to transform my lifestyle into one that would lead to optimal health and wellness. I discovered that I had to implement multiple strategies to optimize my diet, detoxify my skincare, and clean up my environment. Now it is time to utilize my second best skill: teaching. I want to share what I've learned, how I changed my old habits and how I improved my lifestyle the best way I knew. Sharing this knowledge is what this blog is all about. Pepperjam verification
February. The month of Valentine's Day and my birthday - BTW. on the same day! Two days later is my husband's B-day. Lots to celebrate, good times to enjoy!
Every year, it is a time to take stock and remind myself of how important my loved ones are for me. My husband/ best friend, my sweet kids, my parents and in-laws, my extended family. Some of them very, very far away but so often on my mind, as I know I am on theirs. Here is to love and friendship! Here is to yet another birthday, and many more to come!
