She competes in several marathons a year and hopes to qualify for Boston in the next few years.


  • Amanda Barillas:



The best way to use NuVal is to “trade up” from what you’re currently eating to a higher scoring product. Even the smallest jump in score can have an impact on your health. Making small incremental change is the best way to affect long term changes in eating habits and in your health. We hope this helps and happy grocery shopping!
