Nourishing and Moving Our Bodies issue of Visions Journal
Good food and good movement—whatever "good" means to you—are the foundations of health and well-being. Wellness is beyond micro and macronutrients, cardiovascular health or strength gains.

We are faced with diet culture and expectations that encourage shame and disordered eating, inadequate incomes and supports, or literal barriers when recreational opportunities are not accessible to those who need them most and when privileges dictate who can access spaces.
