When mindbodygreen asked me to share what I typically eat in a day, I was excited to show you how I practice what I preach both to my nutrition coaching clients and on my blog.
I’m all about choosing real foods, mindful and intentional eating, being kind and graceful around nutrition with myself instead of judgmental, avoiding nutritional dogma, healing the gut with fermented foods and probiotics, and supporting environmentally friendly agriculture practices.
Yes, I am without a doubt, a huge nutrition nerd.
It's why I feel so fortunate to work as a dietitian nutritionist, guiding and inspiring others to live healthier lives, optimize their digestion, and prevent chronic disease through small changes to their individual food choices.
Not only do I get to geek out about nutrition regularly, I have the privilege of empowering others with the knowledge and tools they need to mindfully nourish their unique bodies and support their wellness goals.
And as someone who has struggled with properly nourishing my own body in the past, I understand how overwhelming and confusing nutrition can seem. My mission as a nutrition/healthy living blogger and holistic wellness coach is to show others that nutrition doesn’t have to be hard, and, in fact, it’s incredibly simple!
Because I live in Northern California, my meals are largely influenced by the incredible abundance of organic, sustainably grown produce that I access at year-round farmers markets.
I’m lucky because I eat a lot of produce.
In fact, I aim to eat at least a pound of fresh or frozen nonstarchy vegetables—including as much variety/seasonality as possible—each day, as well as drink 1 gallon or more of fresh, filtered water. Those two simple habits do wonders for health by helping to support detoxification and elimination pathways, reduce inflammation, improve weight management, boost mood, brighten skin—you name it!
Here’s a peek into how I incorporate those two habits into my daily routine, along with what I typically eat in a day.
