‘…our body is an ecosystem. This ecosystem must be maintained…’ –Ilchi Lee
The Food Interpreter | Registered Dietitian Nutritionist
As a Food Interpreter, I translate my clients’ nutrition prescriptions into delicious meals. By blending the worlds of culinary arts and nutrition I help my clients to bridge the gap between good nutrition and good food. Together, we focus on creating a lifestyle that will last forever, not a diet with an expiration date!
Blending the worlds means showing my clients the tricks of the trade while teaching them how to use cooking methods, herbs & spices, and culinary knowledge to create meals that aren’t repetitive, but are delicious and meet their wellness needs.
When working with my clients we focus on renewing confidence to be able to create flavorful and healthful meals at home. I believe in focusing on the foods you can eat, versus those you can’t, and modifying foods you love to meet your needs! There is always a way to rework a recipe to my clients’ wellness plan. Moderation is the true key to a sustainable lifestyle change; meaning that the occasional gelato or slice of cake can fit into my client’s lifestyle!
My clients learn to become more in-tune with the food they are consuming and their bodies. This process allows them to recognize changes by how clothing fits, improved energy levels, and ability to perform day-to-day activities with ease. Together, we build a foundation of mindfulness and positivity; focus is on slowing down the eating process and enjoying a meal, all while nourishing the body.
At Wellness Cucina, I work with those with Autoimmune Disorders as well as Gut/Brain Barrier related issues such as leaky gut, yeast & fungal overgrowths, and those seeing improved health and wellness overall; I provide my clients with the tools and skills they need to succeed for the long-term.
No two people are the same, so no two nutrition plans will be identical; all plans are created individually taking into account lifestyle, genetics, food preferences, and health history. My plans are targeted to improve my clients’ lives for the long-term; together we create small, meaningful changes, which over time, become engrained into the daily routine.
Significant life changes take time and I am there every step of the way to guide and support my clients on their journey towards a sustainable lifestyle of renewed health and wellness.
