Food & Health Coaching
Healing your relationship with food
Food and Health are inseparable, I can't think of any other examples in life that are more closely linked. Think about it, is there a day since you were born that you have not thought about food? Health is not too far behind, especially as we age. Our health is the key to living a satisfying, happy, enjoyable and extraordinary life. Food is what we are, not only physically but mentally and spiritually as well. Perhaps because of this our relationship with food can become difficult to understand. Food becomes the complicated part of our life; instead of the source of life and joy.
In my teens, my relationship with food became unbalanced. Having depression and anxiety I used food to try to control the uncontrollable feelings and emotions that I was experiencing in my life. I became anorexic and also over exercised. When I felt my body all I could feel was anxiety and depression and when I looked in a mirror all I could see was a person who was fat.
I had an idea that I was out of balance but it was when a good friend of mine said “your body looks like a small child” I was in my 30’s. It was then that I began to address depression and anxiety and began to heal my relationship with food. I can't express enough how strongly I feel about the healing effects that good food has on our body, mind and spirit.
My story is not uncommon, and there are so many types and degrees of food imbalance in our world and so many reasons for it. However; food does not have to be complicated, cooking doesn't have to be complicated, hard, time consuming or expensive. As a food and health coach, I am dedicated to help women who are willing to look at their relationship with food.
What to expect from a session:
Our first session is 60 minutes, we review a food assessment form together and determine your top 3 health concerns and goals. Together we put together an action plan for you to begin your healing right away. Based on your food preferences, I create a 7 day meal plan for you. This plan includes breakfast, lunch and dinner plus two snacks. I can adjust it for you to include your family's portions as well. You will have the plan, recipes, shopping list and nutritional detail and information needed to find ease and pleasure in creating healthy, delicious and easy to create meals. During the week, we will get on a call together for 30 minutes and check in to talk about what's working and what's not working for you. At this time we can adjust the food choices or go ahead and create a week 2 food plan. This lays the foundation for your new life of food freedom and optimal health.
The inclusive cost of this is: $250
Together we can find solutions to fill that void
and learn to cook and eat healthy fun food.
Hourly rate is $90
Packages of 3 one-hour sessions: $250
Depending upon your food and health goals you may want to continue our work together. We can dive deeper into your areas of interest as they relate with food. Perhaps, you are interested in how to create your own meal plans, or have a deeper understanding around what specific foods are best for you and your changing needs. One example would be around menopausal symptoms, you may want to create meals that support your body during times when you are experiencing the imbalance symptoms but then go back to your day to day healthy whole food meal plans.
