Michelle’s food philosophy

Whole foods in their least processed state, since they are more satisfying, are higher in satiating fiber, higher in disease-fighting phytonutrients, and free of added sugars, added sodium, and dangerous added trans fats.

The plate. Michelle stresses the importance of protein and fiber at every meal and snack. Plus, whole grains, fruit, nuts and seeds, nutritious oils, and plenty of vegetables. Michelle leans toward the Mediterranean way of eating. Yes, that can include alcohol.

Evidence based. Michelle is a credentialed Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Dietetics (study of nutritional and food science), completed 1,000 hours of supervised practice, passed the RD exam, and completes 75 hours of continuing education every five years too maintain her credential.

Michelle learned first-hand how the scarcity diet mentality not only doesn’t work long-term, it backfires. Loading up on artificial sweeteners, diet drinks, extreme packaged fat-free and low-calorie foods, and counting every single calorie can leave you with the feeling of deprivation, wanting even more food in the end. Michelle weighs 25 pounds less now on her plan compared to her 20s when she had the diet mentality. Now, she is fueled properly to excel in sports, run a business, and manage family life with young children.

Gorgeous, satisfying food that tastes amazing.

With Michelle’s help, it is possible to maintain or even lose weight while on vacation, dine at your favorite restaurants, and enjoy wine. Michelle meets you where your lifestyle is.
