vigor triggers

Vigor Triggers is this site’s name for REAL FOOD ingredients that trigger VIGOR in our bodies. By highlighting the attributes of 100 of my most used natural foods and spices, it is my hope that we stop misreading food as a calorie or carb count, but rather begin to see food as a source of energy and well being that our bodies need to thrive.

Please note: I am not a scientist or a health specialist. I am, however, extremely passionate about well-being. I encourage all of you to delve as deep as you like on your own. There is so much to learn! For bibliography, click here.
