What makes Amanda a brilliant and perceptive nutritionist is that she understands how busy we are in today’s world. She understands most of us are on a budget. She doesn’t expect a person to make over her whole life just to accommodate a new way of eating. There is no preaching. She is not about denying yourself joy, especially if you are a person, like me, who sees eating as a celebration of friendship and culture.
Instead, she encourages mindful choices and self-reflection as a way to slowly develop better habits—habits that are likely to stick with you for a lifetime.
She educates you on the latest trends and separates myth from fact. She helps you pinpoint your triggers and offers solutions customized to who you are. With Amanda’s guidance, I am combining foods to better my digestion and working on eating when I feel hungry. I’ve made changes to my pantry so my everyday eating is healthier for me. And she’s helped me do that without having to cook more or spend more money on food. My gut feels better. I feel lighter. Plus, I am worrying less about my diet and just living. Isn’t that how life should be?
