General

Happy Healthy Nat (was Fit and Gluten-Free) is aiming to provide you with honest, helpful information about living a healthy lifestyle. It is not a necessity for you to be gluten-free to enjoy reading my posts or making the recipes and, although I promote weight training, it is, of course, not essential that you choose this type of workout. I want to help you to achieve your health and fitness goals safely and without the use of fad diets or any other unsafe methods. I also want to make it easier for those living a gluten-free lifestyle as I know how difficult it can be to adjust when you first go gluten-free.
