So you all know about my man crush, Sean Croxton, from http://www.undergroundwellness.com. This guy is the nutrition guru! He interviews top experts in the field of wellness and then podcasts his interviews for free. He is genuine and has massive integrity! He introduced a free Macbook giveaway over the last few weeks to the person with the best photo of #JERFING-(AKA – Just Eat Real Food) . Well, the AngelaMD wellness warriors are all about eating real food so we decided to enter the contest. We were under the gun last night to submit a photo after finding out that my oldest daughter’s computer died. She is in desperate need of a new one for this semester’s classes at a local college (she is studying to be a social worker). The Henriksen family rallied and produced these hilarious and somewhat ridiculous photos.
