Hi, welcome to our community and to Nutrition Stripped!
At Nutrition Stripped, we’re making it simple to understand and apply the science behind nutrition and the art of healthy living — all while enjoying delicious recipes (i.e. the vehicle for good nutrition!). We believe feeling your best is a way of thinking, living, and showing up for yourself by taking action.
With support from hundreds of science-backed health and nutrition articles, weekly newsletters, coaching programs, online education courses, and a global community for support — our mission is to help you live whole, eat well, and feel amazing.
Nutrition is our jam. 👋

— I’ve been there before
“For years in my teens and early twenties feeling “off” and out of sync with my body from migraines, digestive issues, acne, and high stress — I thought this was my normal and I thought that felt “good”. I was determined to expand, grow, and know more about what living well, meant to me so I embarked on a journey and started exploring the world of nutrition science and nurturing the subjective (give me all the meditation, crystals, and sage) by using myself as a guinea pig.
I discovered the foods that made me feel my best and how other pillars of health such as stress management ~ chilling out ~ took my health to the next level. Ever since I had my ah-ha moment of “Oh, this is what it feels like to feel really good?!” I’ve had a relentless passion to guide others to find their way to health.” — McKel Hill, MS, RDN, LDN Founder

— about cell food
We talk at length about nutrition because it’s, in our opinion, the catalyst to feeling really good. Scientific research is still uncovering the many ways our bodies are affected by our gut microbiota and microbiome, stress, inflammation, genetics, and lifestyle. Our food choices signal messages to the cells in our body and mind, which impacts our sense of self, how we feel, and ultimately how we show up in this world.
Our food philosophy is about teaching you how to listen and honor your body by focusing on the best nutrient-dense and responsibility sourced food nature has to offer — while enjoying a glass of wine, pizza out with girlfriends, or whatever your jam is. Explore our Food Philosophy anchored in plants and whole food, here.
— about life food
Because feeling amazing is never just about what you eat. Feeling like your best self-includes all aspects of your life that allow you to function like your best self, that allows you to get the most out of your life, love, and happiness. That’s always our end goal.
If we start to change the story we have around nourishment, we can see it for what it is at its core — it’s a message in the form of nutrients, laughter, movement, love, connection with ourselves, and it’s full picture. Dive deeper into our pillars of health here, NS Pillars Of Health.
We believe food should nourish your cells and healthy recipes are the best vehicles for nutrition — we also really just like good food, too.
Under the Eat Well tab, you’ll find hundreds of delicious recipes all using whole food ingredients, some that are worth the effort to make and most of them super simple to make. We like to focus on foods from the earth (hello, plants!) and knowing the source of your food, but also get that you need a level of convenience so we help you find the next best option.
Our recipes are gluten-free, dairy-free, and plant-based at their core — this allows you to make the meal work for you by adding proteins of your choice and other ingredients that your body thrives on. Cooking this way is a great foundation to make sure you’re consuming the incredible phytonutrients and fiber from plants that we typically don’t get enough of.
Feel Your Best
Our goal is to keep you feeling your best — whether you come to us for healthy plant-based recipes, the latest nutrition science and the art of living well, master meal planning, or you want to dive deeper with coaching — we got you!
— how we can help
Our online programs can help you master meal planning, reset digestion, manage health concerns through diet and lifestyle, and learn the basics of plant-based eating. Our newest addition to the family is the NS Society — a monthly membership making healthy eating simple with recipes, in-depth health articles, podcast, and more.
