Where it all started...

Growing up in a meat loving household, like most of us, having eggs for breakfast, deli turkey for lunch, and chicken for dinner was the norm. I felt pretty good in my younger years. I was highly active, never dependent on caffeine, and prided myself on eating healthy. I could never understand how people lived off McDonald breakfast sandwiches and slurped down multiple cups of coffee per day. I wanted to help those kinds of people see how they could change their life just by eating healthier. So, it is no surprise that becoming a Registered Dietitian was the perfect fit for me.

Where things got tough...

But as I grew older, and life started really happening, things changed. I found out there were lots of people out there that didn’t care about eating well or getting healthy. At the same time, I started noticing changes in myself. I was still suffering from adult acne into my late 20's, I noticed my endurance wasn’t what it used to be on my runs, and my energy all around was just not what it used to be.

Then I had kids. And of course my energy problem just got worse. But that is just what happens when you have kids, right? My skin cleared up temporarily during pregnancy, but then went right back to breaking out on a regular basis shortly after. I was still cooking what I thought at the time was healthy, but keeping the balance between health, happiness, and self-care was getting harder.

Something had to change...

That’s when I decided to start my own business. It was very fulfilling at first, but that slowly faded over time, mostly do to my own unhappiness. I started to seek out that “special solution” that would really change my own life and the lives of my client’s forever. Then, I was introduced to plant based eating, and something about it intrigued me like nothing else before.

The solution I didn't even know I needed...

I decided to do more research and make the transition myself. I didn’t really expect to notice much difference in the way I felt, since I had always eaten “healthy”, but then I started noticing how much better I started to feel. My energy surged, my endurance increased exponentially during my runs, my skin cleared up (finally I didn’t have to worry about waking up every morning with a pimple on my face!), I lost weight without even trying, and I was actually getting excited about cooking again!

Happiness...

I decided to focus on helping others to make the same transition that I did, and now I couldn’t be happier. Through eating more plant based foods, I was able to optimize my health, increase my energy, love my body, heal my skin, and as a result of all those things, form a greater harmony in my life with being a wife, boss, and most importantly a mother to my 2 beautiful boys.
