A Word From Lacey Bourassa

Being a fitness and nutrition writer allows me to combine my passion for and expertise in health with my natural abilities to create content. I'm fulfilled by the opportunity to share my knowledge with people, all of whom are at different stages of their health journeys. 

It took me many years before I found the lifestyle that makes me feel my best. For me, that's a plant-based diet and consistent strength training. I want to share the benefits I've experienced from exploring the vast world of health with as many people as possible.
