I work with clients who are ready to regain control of their health through a journey of diet and lifestyle shifts.
I was feeling bloated and pudgy and reached out to Melinda to see if she could help me feel better. She recommended a whole foods plan and I dove right in. We scheduled an appointment to meet at a grocery store and she and I walked the aisles together shopping for items to make four dishes which I could prep for the next week's meals. Melinda came to my home and we cooked the dishes together. She showed me some tips and tricks and also went through my pantry to see what else I should buy and what I should toss.
The food we prepared together set me up for my first week on the whole foods plan. Without her I would not have started the program as smoothly as I did. She was available if I had any questions during my adjustment to the program. She also checked in to see if I had any challenges that needed specific help. Between work and family, my time is very limited, and starting a new eating program would have been difficult without her. Melinda was the expert that I could count on to help me stay on track and supplement my own cooking to be sure I had all the food I needed readily available. I highly recommend her services and coaching when it comes to starting a program and having continued success - AJ
Real Food Diet
While this doesn’t happen overnight, transitioning away from S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) to a whole foods lifestyle is the single greatest thing you can do to take charge of your own physical and emotional health.
There’s no magic pill here, just real food cooking. I have many ideas and strategies to make meal prep easier and to tailor the process to you. In order to truly transform your overall health and well being, the kitchen will become a priority.
Individual Supplement Protocol
Most soils are depleted of nutrients, and we’re living in a world where it’s commonplace for our food industry to remove the natural food sources of vitamins and minerals, then add back in synthetics. High quality supplements can really turn the lights on for many of my clients.
