Eating healthy can taste good. Lindsey Jones of Marietta shares how to do it with chocolate pudding, a Maximized Living recipe.

“I am always looking for healthy options that actually taste delicious. I found a sustainable way to eat for a lifetime that is actually healthy,” Jones said.

Jones, who has a sweet tooth, added, “I learned that I can have my cake and eat it too. You just have to think outside the box and eat real food, not processed, sugar-fied, preservative food.”

“I think knowledge is power. Many families are unaware of the dangers in the common foods that they eat on a daily basis. I encourage people to get educated,” she said.

Jones adheres to the Maximized Living program, a medication-free way of approaching health, health care and lifestyle.

“(Maximized Living) has nutrition plans that take the guesswork out of what you should be eating. You can avoid the dangers of modern nutrition. Maximized Living has helped over a thousand people transform their life and overcome disease by eating healthy,” said Jones, who is married to Dr. Mark Jones. The couple has two children, 5-year-old Andrew and 3-year-old Nathaniel.

Dr. Jones’ chiropractic practice, ADIO Chiropractic in Kennesaw, is a Maximized Living Partner. ADIO is an anachronism for “above down and inside out.”

“We believe that healing comes from above, down, inside, out. We believe that personally on two levels, one physically versus outside in through medications. We try to live as natural as possible,” she said.

The Joneses, who are Christians, believe God plays a role in healing.

“We love the name ADIO because we believe that all healing comes from above through God down to us, transforming us inside and then we live it outwardly,” Jones said.

The chocolate pudding is an easy combination of avocado, cocoa, coconut milk and two scoops of protein. “When I first read the ingredients, I wasn’t so sure about this one but it is actually really good,” Jones said. “You just blend it all up and chill it. My kids love it with fresh berries on top. Some people like to top it with nuts. It can also be used as a mousse.”

“Everybody’s looking for healthier options. The foods we put in our carts affect more than our waistline. You are what you eat. Clean eating can be easily incorporated into a families’ diet without breaking the bank or consuming too much time. I started by making small changes into our diet. It’s sustainable,” she said.
