There is so much information out there on what we should and shouldn't be eating. Recommendations seem to change every month or so! Everyone has an opinion, blog, book - and attests to incredible health from their chosen 'diet'. After 15+ years of studying nutrition and implementing various dietary practices on myself and my clients, I have arrived at some fundamental principles which I now share with my clients. I educate and create awareness; I don't fear monger. My recommendations are based on research, physiology, cultural/historical context, individuality, and common sense!

My ideal client is someone seeking optimal health. Have you recently been diagnosed with an issue and told that diet and lifestyle changes could help? Do you have digestive issues? Do you feel fatigued and wonder if the food you're eating is the root of the problem? Do you "know" you "should" eat better but just don't know how? When you read all the news on different diets/foods, are you unsure what is best for you? Do you want to be the healthiest you can at any age? If so, I may be able to help.
