About

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”

  Hippocrates, father of medicine, 431 B.C.

I propose eating for health. Eat to feel good and look great.

There is no one-size-fits-all dietary approach that works for all people. Current dietary trends with structured diets and strict rules can jumpstart a health kick, but are typically short-lived. These diets are uninteresting and often judgmental and supplement driven. This blog will help you discover a diet of whole foods that addresses your individual needs, tastes, ethnic and cultural tastes while paying attention to the change in seasons, situations, age, and health.

My aim is to put you in charge. I will be your partner on this adventure. Most people have general knowledge of what is good and bad in terms of their diets, but they do not know the why or the how. For example:

“How much protein do I need and what does that look like on a plate? Why are some carbs good and others to be avoided? Why not just use a sugar substitute? How do I make healthy foods taste great?” 

You will learn how to avoid chemicals, additives, over processed food, and excessive packaging without sacrificing taste and convenience. I will teach you that the preparation of what you consume is an important part of attaining a lasting sense of well-being.  Your home is filled with  toxic cleaning products. I will help you get rid of those, too.

Genes load the gun but our food and lifestyle choices decide if the trigger gets pulled. And, it is never too late to make changes. 

You will learn the best sources of protein, carbs, and fats that will nourish and heal you by crowding out refined and processed foods. Getting and staying healthy isn’t about making a commitment to a diet with limits and uninteresting choices.  Rather it is about a commitment to learn what is good for you, why it works, and to place yourself in charge of your health and your life.

This blog is your support system, your advocate, your cheering section!

Knowledge is power and, with knowledge, food choices, lifestyle options, and the quality of your everyday life will be enhanced. You will become more aware of your eating behaviors while enjoying expanded personal choices, widened food varieties, a higher appreciation for seasonal foods, and a more distinct individuality.

Lifestyle choices can take you on the path to your best self possible.  Stress often diverts you. Avoiding stress is part of the blog’s focus. Stress undermines all aspects of a healthy living. Binge eating, quick-fix drive-throughs with calorie-rich but nutrient-poor processed foods, toxic cleaning supplies, plastic food storage and single-use water bottles, the use of pesticides, all threaten your physical and mental health.

Monthly you will receive three weekly downloads of nutrition guidance and, in the fourth week, a lifestyle guide to help with your wellness decisions.

Why pay for this information when I can look it up online?

I think too much of the information online is misleading. Much of the advice you find online promotes a product or comes from a biased point of view. Weight lifters and housewives do not have the same nutritional demands. Depending on your age, your stress level, your body composition and mood, food plays a different role for each individual. But, everyone needs this kind of well-curated guidance.

I focus on nutrition with science-based information.

Weekly recommendations on how to incorporate healthy eating, sound sleep, mindfulness in decisions about getting your house as healthy and green as possible, are attainable and often less expensive and time-consuming.

The weekly blog highlights a Food of the Day with tips on how and where to buy it.

The blog will include a recipe featuring the Food of the Day.

My own healing journey led me back to school for a degree in Nutrition Counseling, which I earned from Bauman College. I had learned through trial and error what worked to soothe my life-long digestive issues but I wanted to know why. The two year course work taught me the science behind why avoiding some foods and adding others made my body feel better.

This was after years dealing with the established, but outdated, western medical model and not getting better. Piles of prescriptions that didn’t cure but masked the symptoms and visits to gastroenterologists other specialty doctors lead me to believe that they didn’t know what was happening with my gut either. There is not a magic pill that is going to make it all better and pharmaceuticals were the only tools in these doctors’ tool kits.

What I ate was the answer!

I began to trust my instincts in the kitchen. My passion is teaching people how to heal themselves with whole foods. I want people to be as amazed as I am that they can take control of persistent eating issues and conquer nagging health problems with fresh, easy to find food. You will come to understand that genetics, biochemistry, psychology, physiology, age, and sensitivities all influence how you feel and that you have control over it all. What I discovered is that how I eat now is sustainable. I have discovered a dietary pattern that will support me for the long-term. This is what I want for all the readers of my blog.
