Happy New year!

Well, it has been quite afew years since I have been on this blog. And with the rebuilding of my website, I was able to be re-introduced to my long forgotten blog account! It will be nice to get back to it. Although I have been posting quite a bit on my social media accounts (you can follow me on Facebook and Instagram now @nutritionbyellen. Ah.. 2020, what a year this has been. I think we are all ready for you to be long gone and forgotten. But with the shutdown , hopefully we have all been productive and thinking about our future goals and aspirations for when we get out of this mess! I know I am. I am grateful for my health, my family, friends and clients/colleagues. If we have learned anything from this pandemic, it is resiliance and community. We can all get through this, together. I look forward to 2021 with open arms and hope for the future. I see great things happening. And for @Nutritionbyellen, I see alot of growth and expansion of my practice. My practice is now virtual. Which means that I can see anyone, anywhere in the world! Ah.. the power of technology! I have also teamed up with a fitness studio here in my area: Real Fitness. I will be seeing client members virtually as well (for now). I am also going to be offering webinars and trainings in the near future. Oh.. and how about a Podcast series? Why not! So stay tuned for what is in store.. I cannot wait to bring you all some great things! For now... I wish you all a safe, happy and very healthy New Year!

You can look at my "highlights" tab labeled "challenge" to see what it was all about. I really enjoyed trying new foods, new behaviors and new recipes! And so did my followers/clients!
