I am a researcher. I always have been.
The librarian in grade school once commented on my tenacity to learn all that I could on a topic if it interested me. At the time it was Marine Biology. I could rattle off the maximum speed of an adult Great White Shark versus the speed of a Tiger Shark if you asked me without batting an eye.
Over the years my childhood fascination of the ocean has faded away, only to be replaced with a passion for cooking food, delicious food, food that can be a powerful medicine. Food that can nourish the soul, body, and mind, food that can heal.
I believe that our bodies have an innate ability to know what it needs to be well. But with the rise of easily accessible, heavily processed food and the confusing nutrition recommendations that seem to change at the drop of a hat (eggs are a miracle food one day but then a newly published study says they’ll give you a heart attack, the next) there has been an increase of diseases that can be prevented if only we ate properly. But fortunately, we can look to our ancestors and see that their traditional diets have an ability to heal.
As a Certified Nutritional Therapist, my goal is to empower you to take charge of your health. I advocate a diet that is simple, nourishing, and delicious. I want to encourage you to pursue a satisfying way of living, to find balance in your day-to-day life, and to invest in your future wellbeing by starting with what you eat today.
