The Tasty Balance Nutrition Counseling
Kansas City, MO
A Unique Nutrition Counseling Philosophy
The main force behind The Tasty Balance Dietitian is a deep desire to help women and girls improve their nutrition right now and create habits to help them achieve their long-term nutrition goals. Each client is individually evaluated and provided with a well-researched and comprehensive nutrition plan they can follow for the rest of their lives. I use a non-diet approach meaning a balanced approach to food that does not include restriction or fear.
For a long time, I wasn't aware of how damaging the promotion of the thin ideal was, all I wanted was to fit in and be accepted. I think we all have those memories from childhood that we remember and now realize 'oh, that's the moment I learned that I wasn't supposed to like my body.' I wish I had been resilient enough to hear that and think ‘nope, I reject that and don't need to change my body to be accepted.’ Unfortunately, it wasn’t that easy. That is why I chose a career in nutrition and created The Tasty Balance. I want to help those struggling with eating disorders and chronic dieters as well as those who are wanting to intuitively eat and wanting a sustainable nutrition message.
