Supportive, Intuitive, Mindful, Pleasurable, Liberating, Everything-is-a-possibility!
How Does It Work?
When challenged with what to eat, use the SIMPLE approach to nutrition and ask yourself, “Does your food fit?”
Supportive – Does this choice support your needs for this meal or snack?
Intuitive - Will this meal or snack satisfy your hunger as well as taste?
Mindfulness - Can you approach this choice with awareness of your hunger and fullness?
Pleasurable – Is this choice one that you will enjoy?
Liberating - Is your choice made with freedom or does it impose unnecessary restrictions
Everything-is-a-possibility - does this choice fit the category of everything – all foods fit!
Nutrition for Health
Through simple changes based on developing heart healthy eating patterns, we can improve health outcomes (healthy weight, balanced blood sugars, lower cholesterol and blood pressure). I believe nutrition counseling begins with a personalized approach. It takes into account your lifestyle, as well as your health-related goals and then finds a way to put them together.
Nutrition Counseling can help make food and nutrition simple. We can work on:
- High Blood Pressure and High Cholesterol, Heart Failure, Type 2 Diabetes or Pre-diabetes, Food allergies, Food sensitivities or Auto-immune conditions
- Meal challenges due to shift work, working long hours
- Easier ways to feed families, young children, busy teenagers or picky eaters
- How to navigate the grocery store
An Intuitive Eating Approach
"Your food choices do not reflect your character or morality" from Intuitive Eating by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch.
An intuitive eating approach embraces a compassionate way of nourishing yourself and developing a peaceful relationship with food and your body. Through this approach, you can release yourself from any guilt or shame related to diets that have failed you, learn to cope with emotions without turning to food and nourish your body without starving it. I help those who struggle with their relationship with food, find peace and learn to enjoy freedom with food again.
