Individuals, families, and organizations trust Lisa Johnson to help them understand and make use of the wide array of available information about good health, nutrition, and exercise.
To stay healthy and meet her own goals, Lisa rarely eats processed foods, and prefers to prepare meals at home rather than dine out. She orders grass-fed meats from a local farmer and swears that vegetables really are her favorite foods. Although she admits a fondness for dark chocolate, Lisa finds good nutrition relatively easy because she’s discovered that unhealthy foods actually make her feel less satisfied and lacking in energy.
If you don’t share Lisa’s natural enthusiasm for veggies, don’t worry: she has countless recipes and hints for incorporating more of the “good stuff” into your diet without torturing your taste buds!
Lisa has enjoyed exercise since she was a teenager, when she began participating in group fitness classes. After college, she taught aerobics and worked as a personal trainer before returning to school to study dietetics. Today, she works out three or four times each week with her husband, a personal trainer. When she’s not working or managing life with the couple’s four children and two dogs, Lisa can be found exercising, cooking, and studying the Bible.
