My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

Whether you’re going off to high school or heading back to school, your diet does not have to take a back seat to your studies. Nor do you have to have a FULL kitchen to make healthy, balanced meals.

All you need is a microwave and a little creativity.
