Favorite Rickaroon? Mint To Be
Why do you eat Rickaroons? I eat Rickaroons because they taste amazing! For me they are a fun treat that still fits within the framework of my nutrition lifestyle. After a lunch or dinner is when I like to grab a Rickaroon.
Beliefs in nutrition? I have been interested in nutrition from my early teenage years. Intrigued by how food influences performance and health, I pursued this field in my studies. I received a Masters from Tufts University in Nutritional Biochemistry and Metabolism. I now believe in a paleo/primal way of eating with a strong emphasis on vegetables, quality meats and natural fats. I believe that in general we need to regain our appreciation for where real, whole food comes from.
