A realist, Heidi believes M&M’s can fit into a healthy eating style along with red peppers, red meat, broccoli, and fresh fruit. As a sports nutritionist, Heidi has made fitness a priority in her routine. She runs, bikes, hikes, tries different classes (spinning, kickboxing, etc) and strength trains regularly to maintain and achieve her fitness goals – which vary based on what is going on in the rest of her life. Healthy eating and exercise change and evolve as we do. Follow her on Twitter @heidiskolnik
