- Hi, I'm Karen! I rehabilitate cardiac patients as well as not-so-healthy recipes. I'm an exercise physiologist, mom, cancer survivor, and artist at heart. I believe there is nothing more vital to the aging process than maintaining your flexibility and that 'real food' can heal you, taste good, and make you happy! :)
