Food Philosophy

Keep it simple.  Choose foods with minimal ingredients.  Products with excessive ingredients generally contain chemicals and/or additives, some of which can be harmful to your health. 

Counting colors beats counting Calories.  While counting Calories has been shown to promote weight loss, it can be difficult to sustain long-term.  Working to incorporate fresh, whole foods with a variety of colors is a good way to track and sustain healthy eating.

Nearly all foods can fit into a healthy lifestyle.  Living healthfully is not about going without, but is instead about balance.  With a healthy base, treating yourself here and there will not deter you from your goals.

COUNSELING PHILOSOPHY

It takes two to tango.  Nutrition counseling is a collaborative process between you and the dietitian.  Commitment and determination from both parties sets you up for long-term success.

Attainable goals are sustainable goals.  Setting small, realistic goals allows you to make big changes.  Small goals add up over time, and before you know it, you've accomplished something you never thought you could.

I get that you're human.  During your journey to a healthier you, you may not be perfect, and that's alright.  I'm here to support, not judge. I believe that success is not measured by perfection, but by growth.
