A different approach to food
There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to diet.
My food philosophy focuses on nutrient-dense & intentional foods. I utilize nutrition therapy to improve digestive issues, banish acne, and rebalance hormones.
I focus on an ancestral plant-forward diet to help clients who are paleo, vegetarian, vegan, flexitarian, or just wanting to incorporate more healthy foods into their lives (and make them taste good!).
Do you eat clean and healthy, but are still experiencing digestive issues or acne?
I can relate.
I had my first experience with the importance of gut health when a diet change and gut-healing protocol resolved my adult acne that I had struggled with for years.
It is a HUGE bummer to be doing all the “right things” with a balanced diet, regular exercise, and a regimented skin care routine, yet still struggling with pain and bloating after meals, embarrassing breakouts, and low energy.
I spent years struggling with problematic skin. My skin finally cleared up when I addressed the root cause, which had nothing to do with my skin, and everything to do with my gut!
Gut imbalances don't stay in the gut.
My health journey & holistic nutrition education taught me a foundational concept:
gut imbalances don’t stay in the gut - gut issues cause systemic symptoms.
Systemic symptoms can include acne, abnormal bowel movements, constipation, diarrhea, acid reflux, painful bloating, PMS, fatigue, low mood, poor sleep, nutrient deficiencies, bad breath, headaches, heartburn, anxiety, brain fog, breakouts... and so much more!
If you feel like you have tried various protocols and diets, but still can’t seem to get better, I’m here to help you. I am a certified Nutrition Therapist Master, specializing in gut issues.
I help health-conscious people improve their gut health for good!
One of the most important things I've learned is that bio-individualized nutrition is crucial. Each one of us thrives on a different diet. As an engineer by training, certified in Nutrition Therapy, I balance a scientific and holistic approach.
I'm here to support you on your wellness journey as we improve your gut health and build long-term healthy habits, so you can live with optimal health!
Why Table to Crave?
Table to Crave comes from a play on “cradle to grave”. Does this make you think of birth and end of life? That is definitely part of it! But "cradle to grave'" is also a term used to assess environmental impacts associated with all the stages of the life-cycle of a product or service. Everything we eat has gone through a life-cycle: growing, harvesting, processing, shipping, consumption and disposal. Ideally, the food we eat supports our health as we journey through our own life-cycle.
