A Lifestyle of Healthy Eating

A Lifestyle of Healthy Eating

Adjusting to a lifestyle of light eating is really a matter of using smart cooking techniques and substituting low-fat ingredients for the high-fat ones.

I would like to introduce you to the new face of FIRST PLACE FOR HEALTH.Take a long look and process what you see. Give it a little time to grow on you. I did! We prayed long and hard about a new name and we concluded that nothing says it better than Matthew 6:33 Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well.First Place is the proper place for Jesus Christ in our lives. This is a fresh and unique symbol using the numerical 1 connected with the letter “P” to reference the name First Place. We chose the color green because it is fresh and a sign of growth and purity. The full symbol forms the shape of a digital map toggle pointing to a location. We are on a journey and YOU determine the specific destination! This is a great way to reinforce
