to Nutrition Stripped
NS was born from an awakening. After years of feeling sluggish and out of balance with my lifestyle, I needed a change and was determined to find a better way. I embarked on a journey and started exploring the world of nutrition, using myself as a guinea pig and fine tuning the foods I put into my body. And to my delight, it worked – I came to the ah-ha moment of “Oh, this is what good feels like!” As a Registered Dietitian with a Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition, I’ve dedicated my life to the pursuit of wellness. What started as my personal journey has now evolved into a mission to help so many others take control of how they feel every day. I’m on a never-ending quest to learn the science behind nutrition and share it with you in simple ways that make sense and make a difference. My goal is to empower you to live whole and feel your best.

"Eating food should be just as enjoyable to your taste buds as it is nourishing to your cells..."Tweet It
The Nutrition Stripped Philosophy is centered around understanding. The more we know about our bodies, our food, and our well-being, the sooner we can recognize that we have a powerful ability to impact the way we feel every day and the better we can care for ourselves. Everything we share about nutrition is backed by science but served up in ways that are stripped down, making it relevant and easy to incorporate in your life.
Nutrition Stripped is a support system for all things wellness. And it’s your open invitation to join the global community on our journey to seek out inspiration and share new ways to live whole, eat well, and feel amazing.
No. 1 | Back-to-basics. Consume local and organic when possible. Eat real whole foods that you can trace back to the source.
No. 2 | Plant-centric. Scientific research has clearly shown the many health benefits of eating a diet high in plant foods from the earth: fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains, pseudograins, legumes and beans. We don’t need science to tell us how good eating plants makes us feel, try it for yourself and befriend these powerhouses of nutrition.
No. 3 | Get to know your farmer. If you consume animal proteins in your diet; make sure they have be humanely raised and have been fed their natural diets. Be able to trace your food back to the source of where they were raised, fed, and how they existed.
No. 4 | Don’t consume anything with a longer expiration date than you. If you can’t pronounce a food ingredient listed on the package or you’re not able to find it in your pantry, look for ways to make it at home from whole foods.
No. 5 | Enjoy in mindfulness. Nutrition isn’t all about counting calories, grams of fat or fiber, nor is eating only for the purpose of sustenance. Food plays many roles in our social, mental, emotional, cultural, and physical aspects of our lives. We should respect all the ways food is involved in our lives. We all, myself included, should start taking a little more time enjoying and more time “freeing” our brains from the mathematics of food, diet fads, and nutritional dogmas; and get back to bare basics of consuming whole foods as much as possible while finding what works for your body.
