Eat More Amazing Food, Drink More Fabulous Wine, & Live a Healthy Lifestyle. Here’s How.

If someone had told me in my early-20s that I’d someday become a Nutrition Evangelist, past-me probably would have had a LOT of questions. After all … I LOVE good food. While my palate wasn’t super refined in my early 20s, my adoration for great meals and good wine/beer were solidly in place. And as I’ve grown older and traveled the world, that love has only intensified.

So when someone says something to me along the lines of, “I wish I could have X, but I’m trying to make healthier choices,” my heart breaks for them a little. Because as a Foodie AND someone who struggled to make healthy choices for many, many years, I know how hard it is to feel like you have to choose between your favorite foods/experiences and trying to make healthy choices.

In my years of working with women to make more sustainable choices around health and nutrition, it’s come to my attention that most women don’t understand how to comfortably allow for indulgent food and wine in a healthy lifestyle. We’re taught that maintaining our weight and making healthy choices are pretty all-or-nothing—we treat dieting as if it's a way of life and refer to our favorite foods as “splurges” that we later have to atone for at the gym. Yikes!

I once shared that attitude, but thankfully, through YEARS of education, trial and error, and learning more about the cuisines I love most, I’ve realized: We DON’T have to choose between food/wine or being healthy. Enjoying incredible meals and fitting comfortably into our clothing are NOT mutually exclusive. 

Which is why I’m so excited to introduce you to …
