My food philosophy is simple. I personally follow a mostly plant-based eating pattern, yet I am a true Mindful & Instinctive Eating Practitioner at heart. This means my nutrition counseling approach is rooted in the concept of eating thoughtfully. Eating thoughtfully means to focus on HOW and WHY we eat, rather than simply WHAT we are eating. Why does that matter? <So glad you asked!>
Eating thoughtfully helps you distinguish between emotional & physical hunger. Eating thoughtfully helps increase awareness of food-related triggers. Your food choices are guided by personal preference, & how these foods make you FEEL!
Therefore, the eating pattern that makes one person feel good physically & mentally could be completely different from the next person... and that’s totally okay! As a Nutrition Therapist, my #1 goal is to help clients see past food being “good” or “bad”, and to make peace with food once and for all!
I am dedicated to helping people heal their relationship with food. Whether it’s pastrami, pears, pizza or parsnips - all foods serve a purpose.
