What are whole-foods?
Whole-foods are those that have not had components removed. (For example - white refined wheat flour that has had the fiber-rich bran and nutrient-rich germ stripped with only the starchy endosperm left.) Whole-foods are those that have not had anything denatured or added. (For example - preservatives, food dyes, etc.) They are “as nature intended” and minimally processed, if at all.
Can transitioning to a whole-food intake make a difference to my health?
Yes! Hippocrates said - “Let food be your medicine, and medicine be your food.” Whole-foods, including whole-grains, legumes, veggies, fruits, seeds, nuts, herbs, and spices in the correctly balanced intake for your individual needs, can create the right environment for cellular healing and optimal health. How foods and ingredients are prepared is also a critical part of whole-food health.
How can nutrition counseling help me achieve my health goals?
Whether you want to overcome digestive orders, inflammation, blood sugar and weight imbalances, mental health challenges, cellular damage, or heart disease - Victoria will support and guide you on your path to vibrant health - by providing assessments, education, resources, and encouragement. Victoria has worked with hundreds of clients who have transformed their health, choosing delicious whole-food to overcome “dis-ease.” Optimal whole-food nourishment will provide your body the best energy, immune system health, hormonal health, digestive health, skin health, respiratory and heart health. Holistic nutrition counseling considers the whole person - our activity level, our constitution and life force, the type of work we do, even our motives for wanting to engage in a private 1:1 whole-food program.
