It’s What’s Inside That Counts!

Photo by Patrick J. Lynch via Flickr You read that headline correctly.  I said it’s what’s inside that counts.  Now I know you’re all thinking I’m talking about beauty.  I’m not.  I’m talking about health.  People spend a lot of time trying to look better, but not necessarily to be healthier.  Let me make an […]
