Broccoli Salad with Pumpkin Seeds, Raisins and Bacon

A plate of broccoli salad with pumkin seeds and bacon

It's Friday. It has been a busy, busy week. Not that getting my business degree hasn't been a handful, but also I started my journey on getting my nutrition certification.  Ever since I started blogging, I have been studying nutrition and how to heal everything through food. To further my education in culinary nutrition I took on getting certified in nutrition. The next three months will be busy and hard, but I think it will be worth it. Plus, I love learning about nutrition and organic living, so this will be fun and educational.
