You will develop a deeper understanding of food and lifestyle choices that work best for you, improving your energy, discovering balanced eating, and finally fixing your digestive issues.
Let me tell you a story...
I started Eat Your Nutrition in 2019, as a place to share my nutrition and wellness knowledge to help others nourish their bodies through food and lifestyle changes.
My nutrition journey began way back when in my early high school days. I suffered from many food intolerances, low energy, anemia, and was underweight. There was no clear known reason at the time.
THEN I HIT THIS REALLY PIVOTAL MOMENT WHERE I LEARNED HOW TO HEAL MY OWN BODY THROUGH THE POWER OF FOOD
Flash forward a few years later in my early twenties, where I met a wonderful doctor who took note of my symptoms and ran several tests that led to my celiac disease diagnosis.
I discovered that I along with my food allergies, I also had endometriosis, another autoimmune disease. I immersed myself in the world of health and wellness as a way to heal my own body. While on this personal wellness journey, I discovered my love for nutrition science.
IT'S MY DREAM TO SHARE THE GIFT OF HEALTHY EATING WITH YOU!
A healthy body was something I’d always thought was out of reach, but I made it happen and it changed my life. Now, I’m on a mission to help change and improve the lives of others!
Finally, I started bridging the gap by taking a much closer look at what I was actually eating. All it took was a little poking around in the subject of nutrition, instead of relying on random blogs and articles to tell me what I was missing.
That was the exact moment it all changed for me. When I started owning my own health story...
I received my bachelor's degree in nutrition science. From there, I continued my studies, where I completed several certifications in gut health nutrition, holistic nutrition, sports nutrition, weight management specialist, nutrition & wellness consultant, and health & wellness coaching.
AND NOW I'M GOING TO HELP YOU OWN YOURS!
In 2020, I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to strengthen her coaching skills. I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories – Ayurveda, gluten-free, Paleo, raw, vegan, macrobiotics, and everything in between.
I use my own journey, together with my experience as a holistic gut health nutritionist, to explain how others can heal their bodies through proper nutrition and the incorporation of wellness techniques. My refreshing new approach to nutrition and healthy living has inspired many to make positive healthy lifestyle changes.
This holistic health blog is the place to be if you seek to live a healthy and natural lifestyle. My goal with this holistic wellness website is to help others understand that a healthy holistic living way of life doesn't have to be restrictive. You can enjoy delicious food recipes with a holistic new spin on healthy eating.
Calories are made up of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, sugar, etc. I found that a higher intake of greens meant I was getting more of the good stuff,
Once I realized this, eating healthy became something I desired. I no longer felt like I was depriving myself of food or enforcing extreme calorie restrictions on my body.
Get off of that dead-end diet trend and start enjoying REAL, healthy food, so you can live life freely, actively, and with renewed clarity!
I was just eating real, healthy, nourishing food.
I struggled with these issues for years, and the entire time I felt so alone.
It was like no one really understood me, and I just wanted a little encouragement, some support. That’s the person that I want to be for you.
In a short period of time, I went from feeling like I’d never get my health back on track, to a body that had never been in better shape.
By receiving my bachelor's degree in nutrition science, I learned about healthy eating and how it can help anyone achieve a life of happiness, high energy levels, and the opportunity to enjoy many, many more years.
As a certified holistic nutritionist, I have an immense drive and wealth of knowledge to share with you and help you achieve your health goals!
In addition to bringing you comprehensive nutritional information and resources based on science and medically proven research, I also have the personal experience to guide you and support you as you work to reach your health goals and reclaim your life!
The average person doesn’t eat anywhere near the amount of green, nutrient-dense, fresh foods they should be each day. Even then, non-organic fruits and veggies are modified so much that they don’t hold the same nutritional value as organic foods.
With holistic nutrition coaching from Eat Your Nutrition, you’ll receive the materials, resources, and most importantly, the SUPPORT you need from myself and the community. With all these things at your disposal, you’ll be able to nourish your body with clean, whole foods, discover hacks that make healthy eating a snap, and replace old habits with a new attitude!
Imagine how you’ll feel when you can:
● You feel like you’ve tried everything.
● You have no idea what to eat.
● You feel like you can’t stick to your plan.
● You don’t know enough about your gut health to manage it correctly.
● You feel like you’ll be missing out if you don’t eat whatever you want.
● You’re used to eating whatever you want and don’t want to give it up.
● You’re afraid to make a major lifestyle changes even if it offers amazing benefits.
There IS hope for a better life! You’re not destined to a life of abdominal discomfort, a lack of energy, and no insight on how to fix your gut health problems!
Straight talk, adaptogenic herbs, short emails, compassion, and cutting out the'meh' to make room for the best.
Limiting beliefs. Gossip or mean girl attitudes. Judgments, negativity, or long emails. Gluten, dairy, or restrictive yo-yo dieting.
Practicing Vinyasa yoga or Pure Barre, on coaching calls with my delightful clients, making dinner, or running.
Morning affirmations, cuddles with my adorable animals + sexy husband, beet lattes, barre class, and good skincare (Drunk Elephant, what!)
● Get through each day without craving CRAP (carbonated, refined, artificial, processed)!
● Eat foods that are not only nutritious, but delicious instead of boring, tasteless meals.

Celiac disease warrior. My #1 reason why I studied nutrition.
I can't whistle. Never have been able to. Probably never will. #secretshame
My favorite dessert is a chocolate vegan brownie. #chocolate
I still wear skinny jeans and side part my hair and use the cry-laugh emoji. Suck it, Gen Z.
