Hi, there! I’m Megan. I’m a certified health coach, blogger and twin mama. And I help people like you take control of their health by teaching how to make healthy simple, do-able, delicious and (dare I say?) FUN. I give you the plans, recipes and know-how so you can be more confident in the kitchen and in LIFE knowing you’re feeding yourself and your family the best food possible.
In my 8+ years health coaching, I’ve worked with women and men to help them lose weight, learn to cook, cut cravings, manage health conditions, improve their energy, be more productive and just get more out of life.
I’ve had the privilege of witnessing some major transformations and with each my conviction only grows stronger: Food is powerful. And so are we.
It started with myself.
At 22, fresh out of college, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that rocked my world. I was in horrible pain and all my doctor at the time could give me was a promise of a lifetime of medication.
Thankfully the meds helped and I started feeling better. With each new flare-up of my symptoms though, I got more and more curious. There had to be something else out there.
My mom gave me Dr. Andrew Weil’s book Spontaneous Healing and that was the beginning of everything.
I realized there was this whole world of health and healing and wisdom out there. Why hadn’t anyone told me about this before?
I read all I could and eventually I went to nutrition school to learn even more and become a certified health coach.
All the while, I put into practice the things I learned. I changed my diet (think more greens, less gluten) and I got better and better.
The real kicker, though… I started eating foods because I knew they made me feel awesome. It wasn’t about avoiding this or I can’t eat that. I discovered something much deeper and it made eating the right foods for my body so much easier.
I had figured all this out, and then just like life likes to do, it threw me a curve ball.
I became a mom. Of twins.
And everything I thought I had figured out got a major shake up.
It’s a lot easier to eat healthy and take care of yourself when you don’t have two toddlers you have to feed and take care of too….
My attention turned to them. I found myself neglecting my own health and boy did I feel it. I was totally exhausted and pain was creeping back.
There was a point in there when I had sort of just accepted this is what came with the territory.
I’d just have to suck it up and get through this crazy time in life. Coffee and wine, that’s mom fuel, right?
I wanted to power through like all the other moms that seemed so much tougher than I was. But I hurt.
I knew I had to get back on track and start listening to my own body again. Just…How was I going to do it with two (very loud) toddlers??
I feel like I’m still figuring that part out… like the rest of parenthood…
I do know this though:
Being exhausted all the time is not part of the job. You deserve to feel amazing.
It’s hard, I get it. It’s possible though. Yes, even on those total sh*! show days. It gets so much easier, too. The food part I mean… parenting I’m not so sure. 😉
