Change can be like that. But change can also be good right from the start.

In this issue, we also introduce a new column, Dietitians’ Corner, where our registered dietitians, Kerry and Meghan, share firsthand advice on things that matter most to you. This issue’s topic: good first steps toward a healthier lifestyle. And something of particular importance to me is bringing the family together around the table, developing good eating habits in our kids, and taking the time to share a meal and healthy conversations. At Fresh Thyme, our goal is more than just helping you find and enjoy fresh, delicious foods. It’s also to help you discover a healthier way of life.
