August’s bounty.

 

 

Nutrition is the heart of health — we really are what we eat. Working together we will find the foods that best suit your body’s unique needs to keep you fit, energetic, clear-minded and joyful.

 

During our work together, we will look deeply at how you eat and how to optimize your food choices to achieve your health goals.

 

As your health improves, you’ll find yourself having fewer cravings for foods that don’t support your optimal health. Eventually you should be able to eat moderate amounts of many foods that were initially problematic.
