Most people are chronically dificient in healthy fats! If you have ever been HANGRY, you're body was probably lacking some healthy fats at the time. When your blood sugar drops that is what causes that insatiable hunger that has you snapping at everyone around you and feeling you could eat the whole bag of chips. Consuming healthy fats on the regular, is the best way to keep the blood sugar balanced, or bring it back into balance when it's out and fight the hangrys.
Fats have gotten a bad reputation over the last few decades but did you know that healthy fats are essential for giving your body energy, maintaining blood sugar and supporting healthy cell growth.
They also help protect your organs and help keep your body warm. Fats help your body absorb some vital nutrients, balance the nervous system and balance important hormones too. Jesus created healthy fats and He cares about your healthy living journey all the way down to the nourishing foods we eat.

My name is Jen Bayer. I am a Wife, Mom to two boys, and Holistic Health Coach and the founder of Exalted Health. I struggled for YEARS with body image issues, and chronic health issues. For over 30 years I tried every diet and fitness program available to try to finally "arrive" at a weight I thought would make me happy. The Lord started to speak to me about this area of my life years ago, and since then has brought so much freedom to my life. I have worn many different sizes over the years, and I feel more freedom now in a larger size than I ever did when I wore a smaller size. I now rest in the fact that my value and worth comes from Christ alone. No number on the scale, no pants size or achievement can bring the peace and rest that He can. I have been a business owner in the health and nutrition field since 2008. I have helped thousands of people transform their health, and their faith walk. My mission and greatest desire is to lead women to the cross, and in a deeper healing journey with Jesus. I have been trained in biblically sound unique methods to guide you in your healing process, and to teach you to walk in greater authority in Christ.
