:a new or different form

I'm Allison, a registered dietitian and whole-foods enthusiast. My philosophy is based in the knowledge that foods are not eaten simply for sustenance, but are the connection to mental and physical health. I also know that the foods we eat, or don't eat, can have a significant impact on well-being. Food should be fun, delicious, and as time-intensive as you want it to be while still meeting your health goals. Not all foods we eat have to be picture perfect, but they do have to be enjoyed. With 10 years of experience, I combine my food and nutrition knowledge with my passion to provide realistic, sustainable solutions to a healthy lifestyle. 

“Nutrition shouldn’t be overwhelming, food shouldn’t come with guilt, and nourishing your
body should also nourish your well-being.”
