I grew up thinking that eating healthy meant consuming foods from each major group in the food pyramid. Wanting to help others be “healthy” as well, I decided to major in Foods and Nutrition when I got to college.
In the summer of 2007, my cousin handed me The China Study by T. Colin Campbell and Eat to Live by Dr. Joel Fuhrman and that’s when everything changed. I realized that I hadn’t been equipped with knowledge about the full power of food – and its ability to fuel us through each bite we take. My eyes, ears, heart and stomach were opened to an entirely new approach to nutrition.
Following graduation, I moved to Germany where I worked and enjoyed the adventure of discovering what healthy meals looked like throughout 28 countries. With my newfound knowledge, I returned to the United States and began working as a Healthy Eating Specialist with Whole Foods Market. My role allowed me to lead Healthy Eating Challenges, host events, teach cooking classes and work with students in local schools. Helping groups of people realize that what they put on the end of their fork is instrumental in taking care of their bodies energized me. And it made me want to work with individuals 1-on-1.
Love & Plants was created around the idea that to show love for our body and help it thrive, we need to provide it with the proper nourishment. My mission is to teach you how delicious vegetables can be. I want to empower you to make healthy choices, feel confident in your kitchen and overall, lead the vibrant life you were created to live.
Love & Plants,
MY VALUES STATEMENT
In the depths of my soul, I believe every person is created equal. Unfortunately, it has taken until 2020 for me to see and begin to understand the way our country maintains racist, prejudice and discriminatory systems. My eyes have opened to the ways I have benefitted my entire life from white privilege. I have embarked on a journey of listening and learning in new ways. I am working to become anti-racist. I am making it a priority to raise my daughter to be anti-racist. I will speak up when I hear or see racism, prejudice and discrimination. Love & Plants is my business, and for me, that is an extension of who I am and should represent my values and beliefs. I welcome honest feedback if anyone hears or sees something that is out of alignment with being anti-racist. I will continue to learn and will work at understanding as well as promoting anti-racist practices. Love & Plants is here to serve all people, period.
