I’m Chef Nicole! I am a professional chef and restrictive diets specialist passionate about helping YOU achieve greater levels of health through nutrition and mindfulness. Whether that entails recovery from an illness, preparation for a medical procedure, or weight loss, I focus on helping my clients, followers, friends, and family find greater health through nutrition and mindfulness.
This has been my focus for the last 16+ years with individual clients and families, and I feel so fortunate that I can bring the food-healing lessons I have learned to an even greater audience online. The ways of eating that I cater to include:
- Gluten Free
- Dairy Free
- Sugar Free
- Low Sodium
- Esselstyn Protocol
- Wahl’s Protocol
- and more, as well as combinations of the aforementioned.
I am here to assist you in getting your mind, body, and heart on the same track when it comes to your health and make it both FUN and DELICIOUS at the same time, whether through meal plans or simply support in making the right choices for you.
The thing is, I have been there, with emotional attachments to foods that made me sick. Ten years ago, I discovered a severe gluten intolerance. Five years prior to that, a wise nutritionist suggested that I had an allergy, and I scoffed at her – then unwilling to part ways with traditional bread and pasta. Only after I cut it out did I realize just how much I had been suffering my entire life. I thought chronic stomach aches, bloating, and swelling were normal. Leaving this ingredient behind gave me a new sense of Food Freedom, the open-mindedness to reassess how other foods make me feel, and a fire in my belly to learn as much about different food intolerances, ways of eating, and nutritional healing modalities!
So here I am, many years and many, MANY more than the 10,000 hours of practice it takes to become a “master” in the field of special diets and functional nutrition. And I want to help YOU achieve your ideal body and wellness. Because honey, I am already here and it is FABULOUS and FEELS SO GOOD!
No matter what restrictions you are struggling with, diagnoses or procedures you are facing, or if you are simply struggling with emotional eating – I am here to help.
Sending you big, squishy hugs – because love & nurturing are my thang!
