Overweight, hungry, emotional eater, bloated, stressed out, tired, unmotivated, hopeless, and ashamed.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve struggled with my weight. With a family history of heart disease (several have undergone triple bypass surgery), cataracts, weight issues, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, I figured I was genetically doomed.
I’d try to eat less and go on different diets but that never lasted long. Plus, I was utterly miserable and hopeless.
On top of my weight issues, I suffered from terrible acne, digestive troubles (so.much.bloating), mood swings, no motivation, and really low self-confidence.
But, then everything changed! For too long, food had been the cause of my pain and now it was going to save me and my health.
In 2016, I discovered the plant-based/vegan diet and slowly started cutting out meat, dairy, and eggs. I started eating an abundance of whole and real foods and before I knew it I lost 30 pounds, I had a regular workout routine (that I actually enjoy), my acne was gone, I stopped having digestion issues, and felt amazing in my own skin!
I cannot stress this enough: switching to a plant-based diet truly saved my life. I am so much happier, calmer, centered, loving, intuitive, and genuinely ecstatic about my life. A plant-based diet has healed my relationship with food and myself.
I am no longer worried about my future because I have learned that my family’s health history doesn’t define my own. And, I know a plant-based diet will support me for years to come.
After this whole experience, I wanted to start helping others improve their health so I become a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. Now, I passionately wish to share my experience and health coaching with YOU! I have personally seen and felt what a diet rich in plant-based foods can have on our wellbeing and quality of life.
This way of eating healed my relationship with food, my health issues, and brought me back to life. Now, I want to help you do the same.
Whether you are suffering from chronic illnesses (cancer, diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure) or lifestyle challenges (weight gain, fatigue, brain fog, skin conditions, constipation, digestive issues, stress, overwhelm, depression) a plant-based diet can support you on your path towards recovery. And I am here to lovingly support you along the way.
YOU are the reason I founded The Green Spatula! I am here to support you and help you heal from any health concerns you are currently suffering with, because you are meant to not just live but THRIVE!
With all the love in the world,
