Eat Right – Out to Lunch – It’s Acadiana
If you had a dollar for every time someone on radio or TV said, “Here in Acadiana we’re known for our food,” you probably would have made about a hundred dollars this month already. You wouldn’t be as wealthy, though, if you were collecting a dollar on the sentence, “Here in Acadiana there is a sizeable segment of the population open to a medically holistic, nutritious approach to diet with an emphasis on fresh fruit and vegetables.”
Although you don’t hear a lot of people say that, and as unlikely as it sounds, it’s true. Dr Marie Pace will attest to that.
Dr Pace is the owner of a business on Kaliste Saloom in Lafayette called Optimum Solutions Holistic Health Consultants. Dr Pace is a doctor of Naturopathy, a Holistic Health Practitioner, a Certified Nutritional Counselor, and author of the book Discover Health.
Dr Pace believes we would go a long way toward eliminating all diseases if we lived on a more balanced diet of fresh fruit and vegetables. Jimbeaux Guilbeaux will be happy to bring you all the fresh fruit and vegetables you want.
Jimbeaux is co-founder and Vice President of Sales at Freshko Foodservice.
Freshko’s 22 employees deliver fresh food, and more, to restaurants, hospitals, hotels, and other food-related businesses in Lake Charles, Lafayette, Baton Rouge, New Orleans and Shreveport. Freshko’s success story is a classic Acadiana business tale and an inspirational testimony to good old fashioned decency in business.
