There’s a pair of old Carolina work boots that sat in the back of my mom’s closet for 27 years. They were retired in 1991, but still full of life. It was only a matter of time until my mom would clean out her closet and throw those old boots away, having no use for them anymore, until I came along. My mom was raised on a family farm but when my great grandparents, my mom’s grandparents, passed away, the Corl Farm was sold to a local Amish family and my mom hung up her boots for good.

The last few years have seen a major shift in how Americans feel about their health. Because of the health concerns of generations before them, millennials are more concerned than ever with what they put into their bodies. But are they heading down the right track?

But more and more research is showing that consuming nutrient-dense foods, that can be higher in calories, is actually beneficial for your body.
