From a dietary perspective, I don’t dwell on calories, nutritional facts, fad diets or magic solutions. I don’t even believe in trying to control or limit my clients’ choices of food with labels like good or bad, let alone adding those labels to themselves depending on their selections. It’s all about what foods make them feel good and why. Period.
Although I used to focus on one dietary style that I thought was meant for everyone (and up to this day I consider myself mostly on a Paleo-Ancestral eating style, strict Gluten Free) and I believed that it was through that “perfect diet” that people would heal, things have evolved in my mind (and practice) as my beliefs about the optimaldiets that support our wellness and joy have progressed.
Now I work to empower people to make the dietary changes that best work for their needs, taking into consideration their goals, lifestyles and unique requirements, so that together we can work in creating a happy, healthy eating style that is sustainable, fun and rewarding. (Notice how I say eating style and not diet, as the whole focus isn’t in restriction but on inclusion and personal style).
However, when it comes to wellness, my work with you doesn’t stop with what you put on your plate. In fact, most of the times, food is the last issue we cover together! (Normally over our cooking classes or fun trips to supermarkets). Instead, we work on a full-on 360 method to tackle all the areas that bring nourishment to you, whether that’s stress or time management, emotional balance and sleep or finding and supporting your life purpose.
You see, after all the paths I have taken on my journey towards joyful womanhood, motherhood and wellness (you can get the scoop here), I realized that the key (or I should say MY key) was to have a balanced and all-inclusive attitude to them. And so my Holistic Nourishment Approach was born.
What does this mean for you?
First of all that we’ll have a blast together! That’s right, I KNOW we will, because we will talk about everything and anything from how you sleep and move to what do you LOVE doing. Basically, if it brings happiness and joy to you, we’ll cover it!
Also, as a Holistic Wellness and Lifestyle Coach a Women’s Empowerment Mentor with extra credits as Joyful Nourishment Advisor, I look at how all areas of your life are connected, interacting with each other and affecting one another almost like cheerleaders or dancers on their coreographies (think Bring It On meets High School Musical meets Fame meets Beyonce’s Formation video).
Also, when it comes to your amazing, awesome, sexy, powerful and strong body, I see it as a whole, catching patterns and details that can be related. Because the reality is that we are not separate systems but one body, doing many things at once.
Let me ask you...
Does stress at your job or in your relationships cause you to overeat?
Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from moving, as you would like to?
Is there a nutritional deficiency that affects your weight and sense of wellbeing?
Is there a food intolerance that is causing you to feel sluggish, bloated or in pain?
Are your ‘Shoulds’ making you doubt your worth?
Are you going through each day numb and lost?
This is all what we tackle!
As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health, wellness and joy, and how working with nutrients, emotions, stress management, habits, relationships and sense of purpose you can heal yourself holistically and live the kick-ass life you deserve.
Together we’ll work to reach your health and wellness goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing quality and quantity of sleep, improving your emotional state, and maximizing energy. As we work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you, which will lead you to implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health.
