I pretty much think about food 24/7. If I’m not cooking it, eating it, taking pictures of it, or reading about it, I’m dreaming about it, talking about it, or teaching someone else how to enjoy it best.
I practice a holistic approach to nutrition, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we look at how all parts of your life affect the whole.
The concept of bio-individuality is that each person has their own nutritional needs. So, when the experts say, “dairy is good for you”, or “fat is unhealthy”, it’s too much of a generalization. One person’s food is another person’s poison and that’s why fad diets don’t work in the long run. I look at age, health, activity level, blood type, metabolic rate and personal preferences to determine your dietary needs.
Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity and a spiritual practice are essential forms of nourishment. When these primary foods are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary.
