Hi! I’m Megan…and I don’t eat perfectly.
Like many of my clients, I have suffered from anxiety (since childhood), have experienced the health-related effects of chronic stress, and have felt powerless against sugar cravings. (Believe it or not, I used to eat a dozen doughnuts on the way home from work and couldn’t resist the temptation of chocolate chip cookies.)
When I was a kid I used to analyze the nutrition information on the side of cereal boxes and wondered what it all meant. I didn’t really understand it back then, but my curiosity led me to examine how my own food choices affected my health, which eventually blossomed into a career that I love.
What I have discovered is that the journey to better health does not happen overnight… it is a process of progress that includes slip-ups, setbacks, and learning what foods are best for your unique health needs. Small changes made over time eventually lead to a BIG transformation.
I think many people believe that being healthy and fit is too complicated and too much effort. And yeah it DOES take effort (anything worth having is not easy), but it does not have to be complicated. Being healthy doesn’t have to be hard. However, because nutrition is a science that is constantly evolving, it can be difficult to make sense of it all. I am a total over thinker, so I know all too well how easy it is to get in your own way.
I am here to help simplify your journey to better health, find solutions to fix the underlying root cause of your symptoms, and help you discover the best way of eating for your individualized health needs so that you can live a vibrant life and feel your best.
Remember… your body is only as powerful as the food you feed it with!
And as your nutritionist, I put the POWER back in YOUR hands.
