Every body is different; we believe in individual approaches to health.

Food is our most basic, fundamental medicine. Like a car, the type of fuel you choose determines your performance.  

Evidence based nutrition: we use the latest scientific research to support our recommendations.

Integrative and Functional Medicine: Creating a therapeutic partnership with you helps us get to the root causes of any imbalances you have and in turn support the body’s natural healing process.

We recommend nutrient dense, whole foods: local, organic, seasonal, plant based, minimally processed, without synthetic chemicals, fertilizers, preservatives, or harmful additives.

A calorie is not a calorie: we always prioritize quality ingredients and portion awareness rather than obsessing over counting calories. 

Nutrient synergy: we help you pair foods to maximize the body’s ability to digest and absorb nutrients. 

The Healing From Scratch ™ foundations of health are cooking and meal planning skills, self-care practices, sleep and physical activity.

Your microbiome, or unique microbial community, is fundamental to health. We help you support "good bacteria" or probiotics through food and supplements when necessary.

Every body is different; we believe in individual approaches to health.

We help you develop a healthy, positive relationship with food to allow you to:


~ Let go of restricting calories, diet fads, and guilt. 

~ Eat mindfully & intuitively

~ Fully enjoy food

Interested in how this

approach can work for you?

Our Mission is to bridge the gap between what we eat, where it comes from,
and how it affects our mind, body and environment.  By doing this, we help
people achieve long term health, happiness and well being.
