My favorite Gina Livy program meals
These whole food recipes & meal ideas are some of my favourites while doing the Gina Livy program. They’re packed with healthy, whole ingredients, nutrients… and they’re so easy and yummy!
Hi, it’s nice to meet you!
Hi! My name is Christina Dennis and I’ve been blogging since 2009 at The DIY Mommy. In 2022, after two stressful years, I decided I needed to change my diet to improve my health.
I enrolled in the Gina Livy program which promotes whole food eating (among many other healthy habits), and my life has changed forever! I’ve created this blog as a way to share my favourite meals with you, and as a personal journal to keep me accountable. I hope you enjoy these whole food recipes and meal ideas!
