Introducing: The Sage Kitchen!
Updated: Oct 17, 2018
The Sage Kitchen is a health and wellness blog written by me, Jessica Osman, DO. I am an osteopathic physician and pediatrician, practicing for over ten years. Like many, I've had my own struggles with staying on a healthy track. I've seen patients, friends, and family with the same hills and valleys. So, I seek to encourage, inspire, and motivate others to achieve change in their daily lives. As over-scheduled lives and processed food abound, it has become more and more difficult for most of us to achieve our wellness goals. The good news is, with the right information and a supportive community, transformation CAN happen!
The fundamental tenant of osteopathic medicine is that health includes not just your body, but also your mental and spiritual well-being, how you relate to others and your community. These three work together, affecting one another. For example, consider how tough it can be to achieve nutrition and exercise goals when you're feeling stressed, or depressed, or just plain too busy, and all you want to do is eat or take a nap! Can you relate?!
Much of what I aim to discuss involves nutrition, healthy eating tips, and fitness; but, I will also reflect on things like stress relief, self-reflection, mindfulness, meditation, and faith. So friends, I invite you to join me on this journey to health and wellness. Let's have an adventure together and see what new things we can accomplish! Gather with me in The Sage Kitchen for a supportive community that encourages you to nourish, nurture, and grow.
