My Approach to Nutrition & Wellness

  • There is a difference between optimal and good, and to live our best life, we need to support our body, mind and spirit;
  • By providing greater diversity in our food choices through different colors, textures, herbs, and spices we maximize our ability to receive the wide range of nutrients our body needs for optimal function;
  • Optimal nutrition does not mean giving up our favorite food traditions, comfort foods, or special treats – it may mean making some adjustments to the quality without compromising the flavor and emotional connection we feel with certain foods;
  • We vote with our dollars and thus have the ability to be mindful of the impact our choices make on our health, and limit our exposure to environmental toxins and chemicals;
  • Clients are the experts in their own lives and therefore best able to determine which small changes can be made to reap large dividends toward optimal health
