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.
Here we are. April 2020. A month ago, I expected it to be an exciting month. My oldest was going to get answers from the colleges she applied to. I would be wrapping up the semester and spending more time in the garden. My little guy was going to spend more and more time playing in his Little League Baseball.
Well, not all of this happened. My daughter was accepted to a great college, but we have no idea if the fall semester will even start normally. My teaching moved fully online. Baseball got canceled till next year. We are all at home, practicing social distancing, grateful for being healthy and together.
Stay safe friends, be healthy!
