Hi! I'm so glad you're here.
My name is Jen.
I am certified in holistic nutrition & plant-based cooking, and I am obsessed with all things wellness.
My road to this world of nutrition and wellness started when I began experiencing some frustrating chronic symptoms, like heartburn, nausea after meals, and a ton of anxiety around not only food, but my health overall.
Sound familiar? Not surprising... it's more common than you think.
After seeing many doctors & specialists who told me that I was just fine, I decided that it was time to look at alternative options.
I found a badass team of holistic healthcare practitioners who finally put me on the right path. I learned that my symptoms were linked to a variety of food sensitivities, caused by intestinal permeability, AKA "leaky gut".
After overhauling my old way of eating to include clean, good quality, whole foods and following a protocol to repair the damage to my gut,. I finally started to feel better! I regained my confidence around food, and I was no longer anxious about the potential of every meal making me sick.
Why stop there? I quit my corporate job, went back to school to study nutrition, and have been nerding out over wellness ever since.
Over the years, I've learned that food is part of the puzzle, but it's not everything. A holistic approach to wellness is where true change happens; where truly vibrant health is achieved.
The most important thing I've learned?
It doesn't need to be complicated.
Life. Food. Health. Wellness. Let's stop overcomplicating it, ok?
the power is in the pillars. The foundation. The present moment. The things that we can (somewhat) control.
What's right for you? What lights you up? What makes you feel vibrant?
I've learned that food trends are simply trends. And fad diets are just fads.
Restriction never ends well. Nourishing your body is important, but sometimes you also need to feed your soul.
The way that you think is just as important as the way that you eat.
It is never too late to make a change.
Small, sustainable, and consistent changes are where it's at.
Now... That's enough about me, tell me about you.
