This year has been a great one and I want to take this time to celebrate all the things that have happened and information we have learned along the way here at Bonnie Flemington Wellness. I created my business website and began changing lives with through one-to-one nutrition consulting. I also developed a new 4-week online group program called Finding Foodease for sustained weight loss and energy that had its successful launch this fall and will be running again in January (get the early bird rate by registering by Jan 13, 2018!).
Another main component of what I’ve been doing is sharing knowledge of nutrition and health as well as recipes with you in my weekly blog. Today, I want to celebrate the most popular posts for a fun look back at what you all found interesting to read this year.
Wishing you the best for the remainder of 2017 and best wishes for a healthy and happy 2018!
