How We Can Help

All of our programs are fact-checked by an expert and supported by our incredible customer support team. These programs should not take place of medical advice or one-on-one care, yet can be used in conjunction with your professional health care team.
We’re Like You, Too.
We know what it’s like to feel really good and we try our best to integrate healthy habits into our lives—we’re also like you and get off track because of #life. Through expert strategies and tools, we’ve figured out some healthy living hacks along the way to share with you.
We’re so grateful to have you in our community to teach and also learn from, together.
About Nutrition and Health Articles
Our articles about nutrition, health benefits of foods, recipes, and nutrition myths are evidenced-based, written and fact-checked by an expert Licensed and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. These articles are held to a high standard of teaching honest content to educate you to make the most informed decision about your unique health.
We talk at length about nutrition because it’s, in our opinion, the catalyst to improving our health and feeling really good, too. 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 cultivate a healthy relationship with food by focusing on nutrient-density and responsibility sourced food. There are no fad diets here, just practical and sustainable ways to nourish yourself.
About Good Vibes Articles
This is where the art comes in. 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.
Nourishment is food, but it’s also stress management, mental health, emotional health, and spiritual health. Nourishment can come 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.
Our articles about good vibes are about the “art” of healthy living, the experience, and the personal stories. These articles are a mix of opinion-based and evidenced-based, written and fact-checked by an expert Licensed and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist when applicable. These articles are held to a high standard of reporting honest content to educate and connect with the reader to make the most informed decision about their unique 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 Recipes section, 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 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.
