The Food Wonderful Philosophy:
Food Wonderful is all about eating real food and loving it. It’s about connecting with our food, recognizing how it affects our bodies, and learning how to maintain a healthy lifestyle while navigating through our daily routines.
FOOD IS ESSENTIAL TO OUR EXISTENCE.
IT IS LIFE SUSTAINING.
This is why we have such strong reactions to food! But in today’s culture of instant gratification, we’ve lost that essential connection to the foods we eat. We crave nourishment but never feel satisfied.
At Food Wonderful the goal is to build a healthy relationship with our foods.
By taking the time to savor our food and making choices that nourish body and mind we can truly learn to LOVE EVERY BITE.
Wellness Not Weight
There is so much more to good nutrition and good health than just weight loss. Check in for regular posts on various nutrition topics focused on building a more satisfying and sustainable relationship with food.
There's no better way to connect with your food than by preparing it yourself. If you're a kitchen novice, don't stress - our recipes are designed with the beginner in mind!
Ever since I got the bug to go back to school for nutrition I'd always dreamed of opening my own nutrition consulting company. I wanted to work with patients one-on-one to address not just what they ate but why they were eating it. But after graduating it made the most sense to take a reliable job as a clinical dietitian working in a hospital.
As I began reflecting on what I truly wanted for myself and my career it hit me that I was letting my dreams go unrealized just because they didn't lead down the most traditional path.
That's why I'm so proud to welcome you to Food Wonderful! There will always be a reason not to do something. There will always be someone telling me why it won't work. And sometimes that someone is me - my own voice worrying over my future. But I've decided that I can't be told it can't be done. And I'm sticking to that!
If you've been struggling to improve your relationship with food the time to make a change is now. Make the choice to live better, healthier, and happier today and don't let anyone - not even your own self - tell you why you can't be successful.

Have you tried one diet after another with limited success? Maybe you've lost weight in the past but gained it all back and more. Does the thought of going on even one more diet make you cringe?
If yes, it's time to get off the diet merry-go-round and start healing your relationship with food. My mindfulness-based approach to nutrition is all about wellness, not weight.
