Nutrition & lifestyle philosophy:
Plant-based. I believe in a simplistic, whole-foods way of eating. A diet full of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, legumes, nuts and seeds promotes optimal health and wellness, not to mention makes you feel and look great.
Be mindful. Food is fuel for both the body and mind. Our bodies need adequate, high-quality nutritious food to perform well. Food affects our health, self-esteem, mood, and energy. It’s important to acknowledge and respect all the ways food is intertwined in our lives.
No fad diets, gimmicks, or quick fixes. I believe in teaching realistic, healthy lifestyle and dietary changes that work for you.
Move regularly and rest adequately. Move and enjoy your body daily, not because you have to, but because it makes you feel good. Run. Lift. Bike. Walk. Stretch. Breath. Sleep.
Start today. A healthy lifestyle positively impacts health across the life span. It’s never too early or too late. Now is the time!
Fun and positive. Focusing on what works, what you like, and what you can and will do is powerful. A positive approach works wonders for changing habits and overcoming barriers. Enjoying the journey is just as important as the end result or goal you are working towards.
“EAT FOOD. NOT TOO MUCH. MOSTLY PLANTS.”
-Michael Pollan, In Defense of Food
