What is it?
Holistic nutrition is a natural approach to curing the body from the inside out. Holistic nutrition takes the time to assess all aspects of a person’s health, from their nutrition and daily habits, environment and surroundings, emotions and stress levels and sleeping habits and patterns. Taking an individual approach when it comes to health as opposed to generalizing symptoms allows the nutritionist to better understand your body specifically, creating a path that best serves the individual and targeting what your body needs the most. We will be looking to restore balance in the body, and maintain that balance long term through a specifically designed plan for you! The overall goal is to optimize both your mental and physical health through a diverse diet and active lifestyle so that you feel healthier, happier, and more energetic in your everyday life!
I thrive on teaching and encouraging people to make healthier choices in their everyday life. For me, each work day is filled with prevention teaching moments—from seeing clients appreciate the importance of fresh fruits and vegetables, to having clients demonstrate their understanding of how to read a food label. I understand that there are obstacles that people face day-to-day, but my main priority is to positively influence you to follow a balanced lifestyle based on your needs, as well as empower you to optimize your health through education, nutrition, activity, and positive daily habits.
What does your life look like? We will take small steps to get you to where you want to be, and the goal is to take those steps and master them. I want you to be confident in knowing these steps will be lasting, sustainable and most importantly, enjoyable changes. I want to see you succeed!
Incorporating holistic nutrition into your lifestyle begins with eating fresh, whole foods that come from the earth, cooking with real ingredients, keeping chemicals out of our daily care products, as well as practicing moderation. These will all be things you will learn to love. When you begin to see and feel the changes in your body, the most difficult part will be going back to old habits. Many of us don’t realize how great our bodies can actually feel and how much room there is for improvement within each of us. A healthy lifestyle is truly addictive once you have made the commitment long enough to see and feel the benefits. Feeling healthy physically is a huge aspect to our health mentally, and our overall happiness. It’s important that you do what makes you happy as often as you can!
Benefits of Holistic Nutrition
How can I incorporate holistic nutrition into my lifestyle?
If you start something you can’t do forever, you’ve already failed. You have to achieve optimum health in a way that is sustainable and makes the most sense for your lifestyle. Something to keep in mind when you are trying to change your lifestyle is to remember why we are setting these goals in the first place. We do it because we love our bodies, not because we hate them. Self love and self care is where the journey begins and where it ends.I will do my best to put each individual in the positive mindset they will need to attain all of their health goals!

Your Food is Your Fuel!
Initial Single Session:
We begin with an initial assessment, to review your health history, concerns, goals and daily lifestyle and dietary habits. This will allow me to be able to get a clear picture of your current health status enabling me to build an effective protocol.
Follow Up Session(s)
We will address your progress, further imbalances and any chronic health concerns to ensure you are on the right track to health and vitality. We will assess your results, how you are feeling and if the program is working for you or not. We may need to tweak your plan or approach based on feedback from you regarding your results and how you’re feeling. Follow-ups are also an opportunity to ask questions, prepare for challenging situations, learn about new tools, resources, or products, and feel supported.
The timing of your meals, type, combination, and consistency are just as important as what foods you are consuming. I will then create customized 7 day meal plan tailored to your needs, dietary preferences, dietary restrictions and fitness goals. All meal plans will have a combination of raw and cooked foods. Recipes included will consist of easy to find ingredients and will be simple to prepare.
Meal Prepping is simply preparing all of your meals ahead of time with better, healthier and unprocessed ingredients. Not only does it save you time, but it also helps to ensure you eat healthier foods more often with the proper portions, instead of reaching for quick processed and prepackaged snacks or meals that go over your caloric needs.
Together we will:
- Choose 2 days you will set aside for meal prepping
- Make a menu together
- Shop for the week
- Cook for the week
- Learn how to properly store your food
