Whole Foods: A Fresh Approach to Eating Right
In the modern world, it’s easy to turn to the closest, most convenient food item. Whether it’s a bag of chips, a processed microwave dinner or fast food meal, these have become the go-to choice for many people. Although not always impossible to avoid, they ideally should be a minimal part of your diet. The remaining should consist of natural, whole foods.
Whole foods are foods closest to their naturally found state, and free of pesticides (or as much as possible). When consumed, they provide more minerals, vitamins and other nutrients than packaged or processed foods. Whole foods include unprocessed fruit, vegetables, whole grain, legumes, beans, nuts, seeds and herbs. They can also include eggs, seafood, poultry, lamb and other foods of animal origin.
What is Holistic Nutrition and How Can a Holistic Health Coach Help Me?
A holistic approach to nutrition means a person as a whole is taken into consideration. This includes their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing as well as social, lifestyle and financial factors.
As a Holistic Health Coach, I believe treating only the symptoms of the illness is comparable to putting a Band-Aid on an unstitched wound. I am also a proponent of bio-individuality and realize that the contradictory or opposing diets often lead to excessive confusion and a complete put-off from healthy eating.
When we work together, I will consider you as being a complex, unique individual. I will explore your lifestyle and physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health with a personalized evaluation. Guided by these details, I will help you to discover whole foods that are right for your taste buds, lifestyle, body type and budget. We may discuss foods to avoid, food labels, meal plans and even eating psychology habits to procure the most optimal form of holistic health and wellness.

Preventing Disease Naturally
To make the most out of holistic nutrition, it is important to take lifestyle choices into consideration. To assist in making lifestyle changes that compliment your holistic nutrition intake, you may want to consider a coaching session.
A coach can help you to connect with your body and get in touch with a confidence in your own ability to make healthy, wellness-based decisions. Rather than being told what to do, you will be shown how to make improvements for the better. Private holistic health coaching sessions can help you to harmonize your body, mind and soul; thereby, leading to a total rejuvenation of yourself.
