Food allergies & Sensitivities
Healthy Cooking Tips
I am a Certified Functional Nutritionist using a holistic approach in helping find relief to many of the root causes of distress today. I am honored to have the opportunity to work with Christa King the CEO/Founder of Fitlandia Fitness & MindZoning® meditations. She has been a integral influence on me and my personal as well as my professional growth in the health industry!
Currently, I am working with clients to help them save money and navigate around the confusion of "what is healthy"? I offer healthful meal plans and a bounty of delicious simple recipes even the kids will love. These meal plans and recipes I offer are built around the sensitivities and allergies we find more commonly with particular foods (dairy, nuts, soy and gluten).
What I offer to my families and clients are just the right tools. With my innovative expertise to sharing new approaches; I bring my clients back into their kitchens through the connection of local community CSA's and foods that locally sourced. I believe in using nutrient dense whole-foods for nourishing our bodies as it is known to help boost our our moods, reduce inflammation, aid in digestion. All of this allows us to be more intentional when making choices around what it means to live a more healthful and active lifestyle.
When we begin to realize that "we are what we eat" it can be a little daunting. The Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) needs to be updated and modified. Food should be safe for consumption and I am here to help guide you through this dilemma. I have had to find ways to eat organically on a tight budget and have become resourceful and creative with meal prepping and planning. I look for recipes that offer ease and success to each of my clients.
If this resonates to you...we should explore what is going on by how the body is responding. We see that foods additives, preservatives and even the soil it's grown in can be part of the root cause creating sensitivities and allergic reactions to particular foods, hormones and moods to be affected, cause inflammation, create gut and bowel disorders, too. Just to name a few!
Often we think these foods and other products should be safe since we have the USDA and FDA regulating these products being sold and served to our family's. There many current studies linking related medical conditions to the different processed and "Franken" food products be sold today. The foods and the ingredients CAN be very harmful and should be eliminated or replaced by making mindful choices!
