What Clients Are Saying

Weight gain and the resulting Type II diabetes prompted my search for a nutritionist at the encouragement of my GP.  I’ve been working with Heather for six months, have lost 20 lbs and have my glucose back in the normal range. Hooray! I started with her Empower Me! program to just get going on the right track…to not only get myself eating the right foods at the right time but understanding why I don’t do that all the time. The recipes and meal planning advice were terrific. Fun and interesting and not so out of the norm that it scared me away. Even if you are just looking for some new, nutritious ideas for your family’s dinner, I highly recommend Heather’s services.

I’m so thankful that I decided to work with you last winter. A lot of what we discussed and the ideas you gave me really took hold. I’m cooking more, and I have easily doubled our intake of vegetables on a weekly basis. I don’t throw away the kale any longer! I go through a bag or two each week. Chickpeas are on a weekly rotation, and I’ve ventured into quinoa and farro. Sometimes for breakfast. My energy, digestive system – even my skin tone – have all improved. All good and so illuminating! It’s not “perfect” (what is?) but I am certainly no longer “failing at food” and that feels great.
