The holiday season is filled with temptation after temptation when it comes to food and drinks! Everywhere you turn there is another box of fresh baked goodies or a candy bowl filled with your favorite treats! Not to mention the many social gatherings you look forward to this time of year that often revolve around rich foods and make it super easy for us all to overindulge a bit.
Many of us say to ourselves, myself included, "I'm so good all year long! I deserve this!" But it turns out that while giving yourself "time off" from your healthy diet for "good behavior" seems like an easy justification in the moment, its more difficult to justify the 5 extra pounds staring back at you from the scale on January 1st!

I practice functional nutrition, an approach that allows me to look at your entire health history and help you find the "root causes" of your chronic health complaints.
This cuts out the trial and error process and helps you get real symptom relief and resolution!
Food is medicine and knowledge is power -I hope you enjoy my anti-inflammatory recipes which are gluten, dairy, and soy free as well as very low grain and sugar.
