Helping you ditch the diet, master habit change, and gain confidence with intuitive eating.
I get it. I'm a mom of two boys and even as a dietitian, figuring out the eating piece was a challenge. You may struggle with knowing what to eat and sometimes feel guilty after eating. On top of that you want to help your kids develop a positive relationship with food.
It’s about body image struggles and feelings of guilt. It’s about family, culture, and satisfaction…and you may not realize it, but there is no one specific way to eat. So if anyone tells you otherwise…run!
Whether you’d like to know how to eat in a way that helps you thrive, improve your relationship with food and your body, or find more joy in the kitchen, Hӓlsa Nutrition has services designed for individuals just like you.
While we know food isn’t everything, we do believe it is a powerful part of our everyday lives. It can bring you energy and joy, or it can make you feel shackled and low. Our goal at Hӓlsa Nutrition is to guide you and your family to a true path of wellness. Through learning principles of intuitive eating, you will discover food freedom…and finally focus on what matters in life.
I have always bounced around between the latest “fad” diets and ways of eating. Sitting down with Maria made me realize that this isn’t necessary and that eating sensibly while borrowing a few “lessons learned” from each of my experiments, was the way to go. She was able to give me, and our family, a number of helpful tips and tricks to take the stress out of meal planning and preparation. The recipes that she provides on her blog are delicious, simple and have changed our way of eating and snacking forever.
Contacted Maria to help our family with our food choices and to assist with healthy, gluten-free on-the-go snacks for my husband who travels. Maria was a pleasure to work with. She met with all of us, got a good sense of our food likes and lifestyle. She emailed me promptly with suggestions, helped to set up a food journal and menu planning. She also provided me with great websites, including her own that had easy and healthy recipes. Maria was incredibly supportive and instrumental in helping us overhaul our diet.
I used to feel guilty after eating certain foods and sometimes felt the need to do extra exercise to compensate for my eating. After working with Maria and learning about intuitive eating, I feel like my relationship with food is so much better. I now give myself unconditional permission to eat what I want and how much I want. It feels really liberating and has helped me look at health and my body in a whole new way.
Thank you so so much for all of the help you have provided our daughter. Your knowledge and kindness are what made such a difference in her journey to get back into good eating habits!
My daughter and I feel much more confident in how to develop a healthy vegan diet for her because of your assistance!
