About

My Philosophy

Good nutrition is key to optimal health and can improve one’s physical, emotional and mental health.  Holistic Nutrition accomplishes this through whole, natural foods that are organic and sourced locally (as much as possible).  Holistic Nutrition also emphasizes the interconnectedness of Mind, Body and Spirit and focuses on nourishing the WHOLE you.

My personal philosophy balances the ideal with what is practical, affordable and enjoyable for you.  It is impossible to be perfect all the time. By making small sustainable changes you can make a big difference to your health, wellness and quality of life. A significant shift will happen over time as you continue to improve your nutrition and wellness habits. Always remember that wellness is a lifelong journey taken one step at a time.

By using the concepts of Holistic Nutrition to guide your choices you can become the most nourished version of yourself.  And when you feel your best, you can live life to its fullest.

  • Amanda got me started on a path that changed my life.  I was feeling tired all the time and keeping up with my 3 boys was a struggle. I knew I had to do something. She helped me tackle my nutrition one step at a time.  I did the work, lost 60 pounds and I feel great. I have more energy than my kids now!!

  • I never knew that eating healthy could be so tasty.  Amanda’s meal plans took my food sensitivities into account and introduced me to lots of healthy new foods. It eliminated so much stress. Not only did I know what was for dinner – but I knew it was going to be healthy and taste great! I don’t know what I would have done without her!
