My family were my motivation for getting my health back, I make no secret about it. They are also the reason I know I need to maintain my health... Here are some of the key practices I believe that as parents we can have to keep our families fit and healthy.

Since 2011, our Food Revolution Uruguay ambassador team has aimed at getting together people who foster a like-minded spirit and take part in different projects sharing the same food goals.

Raw ingredients are always fresh and seasonal, with an emphasis on nutritional balance. When available, herbs, squash, and lettuces are picked fresh from our student-run garden. Sometimes, there's a bit of chicken, and often there's a delicious dessert with unexpected ingredients.
When it comes to healthy eating, I view my family as a work in progress.
