When I first learned about nutrition and decided I wanted to become a dietitian, I thought I was combining two of my favorite things – science and food. When I started, I loved learning about the metabolism of particular nutrients and discovering new recipes in the kitchen, and I thought I would eventually learn the secret to “perfect” health and wellbeing through food.
However, after studying nutrition for many years, becoming a dietitian, and working with many clients struggling to understand: “Great so I need need these nutrients…but what should I be eating?” I’ve come to understand that health and nutrition are so much more complex and nuanced. While I may be an expert in food and nutrition, everyone is an expert in themselves and their lived experiences. I believe that everyone has the ability to tune into their body’s own intuitive wisdom. My goal is to help guide folks tune into that wisdom to achieve their own personal definition of health, and to help demystify the noise of so much nutrition information (and misinformation) out there.
