How ‘Food Heaven’ Founders Wendy Lopez, Jessica Jones Look at Healthy Living Through an ‘Inclusive Lens’

Meet registered dietitians Wendy Lopez and Jessica Jones, co-founders of the multimedia platform Food Heaven, a one-stop-shop for inclusive and accessible wellness.

”We want these players to withstand a 60-game sprint over a 66-day schedule,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday on the eve of the first arrivals for ”spring” training 2.0, already dubbed summer camp in Major League Baseball’s marketing deal.

New York had been set to open March 26 at Baltimore with many of its key cogs on the injured list but expects all of them to be available when training resumes this weekend.

Sound familiar?

New York placed a big league record 30 players on the injured list a total of 39 times last season, then overhauled its training and conditioning staff.
