My passion and specialty have always been food; nourishing and connecting people through nutrient dense ingredients that tastes good, looks good, smells good and is good for you!
Specializing in the Gut-Brain connection as well as Athletic Nutrition, I help my clients with optimizing their digestion through nutrition, lifestyle (yoga, mindfulness and/or movement), self-care practices (all 6 pillars: physical, mental, emotional, social, environmental and spiritual) and overall health & wellness goals including:
- Management and reduction of anxiety/stress and/or depression – specifically high functioning anxiety/depression and oxidative stress
- Increasing energy and/or overall cognitive focus
- Improve or help with digestion and dietary issues
- Improve or help with skin issues such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, etc.
- Reduction or management of migraines, cramps and muscle pain
- Transitioning to new health requirements such as Diabetes, Autoimmune Protocol (AIP), Ketogenic Diet, Gut & Psychology Syndrome (GAPS), Candida Cleansing, etc.
- OVERWHELM; not knowing where to start with their health
If this sounds like you, we may be a great fit for each other!
With my knowledge in Holistic Nutrition (certified in Athletic Nutrition), being trained in Holistic Culinary Cooking and living an Ayurvedic/Ashtanga lifestyle, I help clients by creating nutrient-dense meals, meal plans or lifestyle recommendations to help support the body with healing optimally so it can back to homeostasis.
My focus is to educate, empower, support and inspire. Emphasizing on the gut-brain connection by getting to the root cause of their health concerns. I believe in integrating a variety of tools such as self-care practices, mindful movement, gut-healing protocols and simple lifestyle tweaks that anyone can be implemented easily.
My specialty is working with picky eaters or tricky new diets. A majority of my meal prepping clients have been: Family of GAPS Diet, AIP Protocol, Diabetic, Celiac, Lactose Intolerant and transitioning to new ways of eating such as KETO, PALEO and GLUTEN-FREE. However, I offer meal-prepping for all styles of eating- gluten-full and omnivore, too!
My goal is to keep things simple, attainable and affordable. Eating good food doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. Focusing on whole, local, seasonal foods while integrating practical approaches to help moderate, balance and blend into a busy lifestyle.
