What I love most about energy bites is that they are so easy to prepare ahead of time for convenient, healthy snacking during the work…Read More
Before falling in love with nutrition (and I did fall hard!), I wasn’t exactly the poster child for health & wellness! Getting sick was like a part time job for me. Every couple of weeks I was battling the latest colds or flu bugs. My immune system was severely compromised! It got to the point where I lost all trust & faith in my own body.
My diet at that time consisted of 2 food groups: sugar and caffeine. Fresh fruits and veggies were optional in my eyes! Like most young women, I had an unhealthy relationship with my body. I wanted to lose weight and was looking for a quick fix in all the wrong places. I felt terrible overall.
What changed for me? I began to inform myself. I watched the latest documentaries, took myself to a holistic nutritionist, raided my fridge and pantry for all things packaged/proccessed & refined and I introduced myself to real foods. This included good fats, green vegetables, tons of water and breaking up with sugar. It’s not a shift that happened all at once. I chose and still choose to be healthy everyday! But the more I learned, the less room there was to go back. Before I knew it, in the course of a year I had not been sick at all! I finally discovered my immune system! Most satisfying of all though was the healthy relationship that developed with my body. Once I started to eat real, whole foods, I stopped obsessing over the number of calories I was consuming and the number before me on the scale. There was no joy in that. I realized that healthy eating was a way of life and the only way for me to feel good.
Eventually, this all led me to pursue a career in Holistic Nutrition because I was so passionate about the topic and because nothing else had ever felt so right. Today, I’m a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, a Culinary Nutrition Expert and a second year Homeopathy student. I’ve turned my passion for what I love into what I do for a living.
