About: Taan Shapiro
One afternoon, I was walking through the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain, Boston and a birch tree called out to me. As I touched the tree, it allowed me metaphysically to pass my hand through its trunk. The tree accepted me and offered its energy. This birch tree brought me warmth and wholeness. Years later, I began my studies in herbalism. Today, plants help support the health of me and my family.
In the last year, I decided to continue my health journey, both through exercise and eating. I go on a long run once week. I support my running through cross training and strength training.
I knew that exercise alone was not enough to achieve optimal health. I began looking at what I eat, tracking my food daily and finding ways to eat delicious meals that are veggie heavy and protein rich.
Here's to making changes for the body through plants, exercise and food!
