Inspiring, teaching, and empowering individuals to nourish health, and power dreams in life by translating nutrition research and Mediterranean mindset into a simple approach
for your modern lifestyle!
Healthy Out of Habit provides a peEk into the food, health, and lifestyle habits of healthy cultures, and applies these ancient traditions
to modern life.
As a mother, a nutritionist, teacher, and writer I "get it" regarding the challenges of balancing career, family and wellness. Healthy Out of Habit is the place for anyone wanting to feel good without perfection and dieting, spend less time overthinking everything, and waaay more time enjoying life.
I help individuals #disruptdieting by ditching the diet trends and food fads, and setting sustainable habits to feel better. . .for good. . .for life.
As a serial urbanite—from Aix-en-Provence to San Diego to New York City to Barcelona—I love to soak in new experiences, foods, and approaches to health. Living in Barcelona, Spain, for nine years now, has taught me that food is much more than the sum of its parts, and that tradition and culture—instead of dieting and pop culture—can serve as the model for a pathway to health.
Transitioning from the micronutrient-focused education in the U.S. to the lifestyle approach here in the Mediterranean has helped me simplify my own life and create health—out of habit—rather than food rules or perfection. Now, I share this freedom with others by mixing nutrition science, cultural flair and real-world tools.
YOU ARE POWERFUL.
YOU LITERALLY AND FIGURATIVELY NOURISH THE WORLD. It'S ABOUT time THAT YOU Nourish YOURSELf, so that YOU have the power to nourish others.
Your relationship with food and how you feel about your body matters because it affects your happiness, energy, productivity and the power to chase your dreams in life (not to mention the future health, happiness, and power of those who depend on us).
Yet, the simple task of deciding what to eat has become insanely difficult. We are in a period of nutrition overload, diet gurus, healthwashing, marketing manipulation, cleanses, and obsession with getting it oooooh so perfect!
Chasing perfection and the next fad diet is not only ineffective, counterproductive and excessive waste of your time and brainpower, but it chips away at the core fiber of who you are.
The world needs more of you, not less.
Body weight is not an indication of health.
Body size is not an indication of self-worth.
In this space, we celebrate uniqueness.
We celebrate all bodies, genders, cultures, races, abilities, and ages.
Healthy Out of Habit is the place to help you nourish your mind and body so you have the power to chase your dreams in life.
This is a community to support you in your unique journey to health, happiness and zest for life!
