Building a Healthy Startup Kitchen, Part 1: The Nutritious Grocery List

At WellnessFX, we practice what we preach. Our kitchen is stock full of healthy choices to satisfy everyone from a carnivore to an omnivore to a vegan.  Luckily, we have the fantastic Johanna Thorn, N.C. who helps our entire team keep up our energy and vitality through the day.
