The study of nutrition is always evolving. It can often feel overwhelming trying to keep up with what is right for you. From the newest fad diet to the next “it” superfood or even simply what you should and should not eat. It all seems to change daily accompanied by contradictions and food politics at every corner. Here I will provide down-to-earth, ways to eat well on a budget, where research is cited PubMed articles are always linked for accuracy, and simple How To’s to support your health, happiness, and vitality.

I strongly believe in the diet and disease connection. My passion is to work collaboratively with you to identify what foods make you and your family feel your best and how to make them work for your lifestyle & budget. I want to pull back the curtain to show that nourishing meals that taste delicious and make you feel your best are easy to fit into even the busiest lives.  As a busy working parent, I empathize with how balancing dinner can feel overwhelming with limited time, contending with picky eaters and/or diagnosed food allergies, while wanting it to nourish you inside and out. 

I love hearing from you and want to provide you nutrition information that answers your questions! So if you want to know what the best alternative flours are? How to sprout? What’s the deal with Chia seeds or have a nutrition topic you want to know more about, just drop me a line and I will be happy to explore it here.


In great health, XO Jo
