The Full Story
As a certified nutritionist and personal trainer, I know first hand the power food has to literally change your life - for the better or for the worse. My own journey losing and maintaining an almost 100 pound weight loss, along with over 5 years as a personal coach to hundreds of clients, has taught me that no matter your age, your level of physical fitness, or your socio-economic level - by changing the foods you eat, you can truly change your health, your body, and your quality of life. One of my favorite quotes is from Dr. David Sinclair, professor of genetics and co-director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at Harvard Medical School:
"Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."
It sounds overly simplistic but perhaps we're just making it harder than it needs to be.
I am passionate about sharing all the glory that can come from good health and the myriad of ways we can improve our quality of life through good food, good sleep, mindfulness, movement, passion, and purpose.
My mission is to bring new recipes, tips and tricks for finding your path to your very best life, climate and environmental impacts of a plant-based lifestyle, and maybe even inspire you to add a legume or two to your daily diet.
My biggest hope is to bring quality content in a time of overwhelmingly bad information and pseudo-science. This blog has no agenda. No hyperbole. Just a genuine wish to share my passion with you.
A community of people trying to improve their life through good food, movement, and mindfulness.
