I’m Natalie, a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, and I’m so glad you found your way to my site. There are two things you should know before we dig into the good stuff. First, my mission and second, why it matters.
To teach you how to source, cook and fall in love with real food again.
Why it matters
If you currently have a pulse, I’d be willing to bet most of the food you eat doesn’t come from your own kitchen. It probably comes from restaurants, fast food joints, taco trucks (which I adore), or boxed meals. And if you live on a Western diet, consisting mostly of highly-processed food ‘stuff,’ you are most likely not feeling so great.
It’s important to understand it is NOT your fault. You don’t lack willpower because you can’t stay away from sugar each afternoon or because you feel hungry all day or because you can’t shed stubborn weight. You are simply a product of modern convenience, which is slowly doing us in.
Through no fault of our own, we’ve put refined ‘food’ into our bodies for decades and most of us are chronically dehydrated, malnourished, or worse, suffer disease.
In the U.S. right now, 38 million people have diabetes and 98 million have pre-diabetes. 20% of our children are considered ‘obese’ and almost half (42%) of adults. The vast majority of us live on ultra-processed foods, soda, energy drinks, copious amounts of sugar, pharmaceuticals, and caffeine to function. We haven’t been given the tools to listen to and transform our bodies. This is not living, this is deprivation.
But here’s the beautiful thing: we have a choice. And I’m here to show you how choosing quality ingredients and demystifying cooking can lead to amazing food and better health.
Food is medicine but it doesn’t need to taste that way. Join me and learn how to take the staples you love and transform them from detrimental to nourishing. Everything from condiments to casseroles, stews to snacks, bread to bbq will be reinvented using whole food ingredients and nutritional therapy practices.
Are you ready? Then let’s get started!
