The Integrative Nutrition Plate
The Integrative Nutrition Plate emphasizes:
Local and organic produce
Plant based fats
The plate shows what a plate should look like at mealtime and stresses the importance of portions and portion size. The plate is surrounded by lifestyle factors that create optimal health.
The fact that many nutrition experts give their clients a list of foods to avoid and foods to eat explains why so many people are turned off by nutrition. My approach is different. By eating and drinking foods that are good for you, you will naturally have less room and desire for unhealthy foods. Simply put, you will crowd out the unhealthy food in your diet. This takes a little practice to make happen, but I will support you along the way.
Cravings play a critical role in understanding what your body needs and shouldn't be ignored. When you learn how to deconstruct your cravings and understand what they are really telling you, you will be able to reclaim a sense of balance and harmony.
This is the idea that each of us has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person's food is another person's poison which is why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. I will support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background.
