You Can Be Your Own Expert

I believe each person is fully capable of making well-informed decisions. We all have the ability to be our own expert without having to follow the latest magazine article or fad diet.

I empower my clients to define what they value most for their well-being. We use these visions to motivate specific goals that bring them closer to where they choose to be. This involves...

As their coach, I do not dictate a diet.

Together we explore why some foods make them feel better than others and how to strategically use that feedback. Together we co-create their health goals within reasonable time frames and actionable, objective steps so they know exactly what they are working towards.

Moms love how, together, we set measurable goals and create actionable steps to sustain a healthy lifestyle for themselves and their families.

Here are some concepts that we explore during our work together:

-Eating healthy every day and foods to include in every meal

-Cooking at home

-Drinking lots of water (weight in pounds divided by two) on an average day

-Drinking water instead of sugary drinks or dairy

-Taking daily nature walks

-Half of the plate being fruits and vegetables

-Eating only whole grains (gluten free foods if sensitive to gluten)

-Adding healthy saturated fat (i.e. organic virgin coconut oil, grass-fed butter, ghee, and extra virgin olive oil)

-Including quality protein (i.e. grass-fed/pasture-raised/organic meats, organic cheeses, organic eggs, and low-mercury wild caught fish)

-Cutting out refined carbs (i.e. white bread, white rice, white pasta) and cutting down on carbs in general. Instead eating whole grains and non-starchy vegetables (i.e. asparagus, green beans, brussel sprouts, broccoli, beets, celery, and cauliflower), which are all ‘good’ carbs.
