Hello and Welcome!

I’m so glad you stopped by to check out my blog. Here you will find equal parts information and inspiration with recipes, articles and likely some affirmations! 

One of the most common things people comment on when coming to see me for the first time is, “I thought you were going to take away everything I like to eat.” You are in charge of what you want to do with your health. It is never about me. My approach is one where we work together to chart a plan for your lifestyle and unique situation. Many new clients have actually told me they went out to eat for a big meal the night before and can laugh about it at the end of the session. An approach that is too restrictive is not likely to last and not encouraged. I will always promote balance and nudge toward better health but in a realistic way. I hope you find this to be a great resource for you today and in the future!

February is Go Red for Women, American Heart month. Learn the signs, work on prevention and being the healthiest you can be. Lots of information and tips to stay healthy!

If you are looking for a take action point, consider adding some of the red fruits and vegetables pictured here into your daily diet. We have all heard "an apple a day keeps the doctor away" but a diet filled with all kinds fruits and vegetables is a healthy way to go. How about adding red peppers or radishes to your salad or as a snack alongside hummus instead of carrots and celery?  Make a tomato based dinner or fajitas with red peppers to infuse more red into your day. Enjoy!

I found it fitting to start my newsletter with tomatoes since my website puts them front and center.

Be well!
