There is definitely a hierarchy when it comes to food. Yes, some have more nutrients than others and will help you achieve better health.
What are the healthiest foods to eat?
Dark leafy greens
Richly colored berries
Nuts and seeds
Wild caught fish
These are all INCREDIBLY easy to get in your diet if you are cooking at home (or hire someone to cook for you).

This was one of the coolest things I learned while I was getting my nutrition degree.
The colors in plants mark the nutrients they contain. We can literally color ourselves healthy by eating all these colors,
COLOR is how we nourish our bodies!! Whatever you're eating day in and day out, it should be full of COLOR!
The nutrients in our foods are marked by color
More color means more variety of nutrients
Colors mean anti-aging and anti-disease
Do you think this is as cool as I do?
You have to follow the diet that works for YOU!
Personally, I don't subscribe to any particular diet. Here is what I do...
Finding the best "diet" for me is an ever evolving journey! I love trying new things:
All of this experimenting helps me see what I like best and what fits best in my schedule.
I am constantly learning new things about my body and my health and how I can help my clients apply what I am learning!
What works for you?
This is what I know...
The best diet to follow is the one that works for you while helping you improve your health!
"Do I need to be following Paleo?"
"Is Keto the healthiest?"
"How do I know if I am eating the best diet for me?"
This "diet" is a way of life. It should be flexible to fit with your schedule.
It should serve you in improving your health, feeling good, having energy and looking the way you want to look.
You don't have to follow any diet that anyone else does, simply do what works best for YOU
You have to do what works for you, or nothing will work!
Pictured is the most delicious lunch I ate the other day.
This is a peak into how I balance my eating and what I eat on a typical day (although not all of this was typical, coughwinecough.)
Such a delicious lunch with tons of whole, plant foods- just the way I like it!
Local, #grassfed beef sliders
Seafood salad with avocado
Wine, because #winenot ?!
What did you have for lunch?
Yes, eating local foods makes a huge difference!
Plan your menus around local ingredients.
This is the best way to ensure you are getting:
The most nutrients possible
The highest quality ingredients
Organic for the best price (most small local farmers use organic methods, but simply can't afford the organic label)
Foods your body craves (our bodies are programmed to eat seasonal foods from our area)
Basically It Meals are all locally sourced so you get the best bang for your nutrition buck!
You've probably heard about Grass Fed Beef, but you're not sure if just another nutrition hype.
I am here to tell you Grass Fed makes all the difference!
Grass fed beef is THE BEST kind!
Here are all the benefits:
Good for you fats
Better for the environment
Happy, healthy cows
Supports local farmers
No hormones or additives
Superior taste and quality
Our meals use all grassfed, stlouis local beef. We are so proud of it!
Yes, I said it.
Ditch your multivitamin!
Most multivitamins are a waste of money!
Not only are they not formulated for absorption, they may not contain what they say they contain, AND they may not contain what your body actually needs!
Your supplement regimen should be FOR YOU to live your healthiest life possible, not a generic formulation.
We cover all of this in No-Diet Diet Club
Healthy is different for everyone!

What adjustments do you need to make to feel good and look the way you want?
I am strict in certain areas: no gluten, low sugar, no fast food.
