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 in my mid-20's, when I began experiencing some frustrating digestive symptoms. Chronic heartburn, feeling queasy & nauseous after meals, plus a lot of anxiety around not only food, but my health overall.
Sound familiar? Yep, it's more common than you might think.
After months (actually, years) of seeing doctors & specialists and being told that I was just fine, I decided that enough was enough, and I began to look at alternative options.
Working with my badass team of holistic healthcare practitioners 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".
I followed a protocol to repair the damage to my gut and overhauled my old way of eating to include clean, good quality, whole foods. And... I 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.
My journey didn't 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.
Let's stop believing the influencer who swears that their way of eating is the only way to eat.
That their way of living is the only way to live.
What's right for you? What lights you up? What makes you feel vibrant?
If you want to make a change in your life, remember this....
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.
