Healthy living is about flexibility, balance and discovering what works for your body. As a registered dietitian nutritionist, my mission is to empower women to find their personal path to health without the rules and restrictions. I focus on a minimally processed, plant-forward way of eating, but nothing is off limits—including bread, butter, or whatever you’re thinking of right now. I don’t believe in guilty pleasures when it comes to food. Let’s instead focus on enjoying it!”
