Happiness resides not in possessions, and not in gold, happiness dwells in the soul. - Democritus
Welcome to my SOUL space. I'm Francesca, Holistic Health Coach, Cooking Instructor, Wellness Activist, and Nutrition Nerd. I aspire to inspire health, happiness, and vitality,
I'm ready to help you upgrade your healthstyle so you can sprout from your SOUL, by sharing my passion and love for nutrition, wholesome recipes, and simple strategies to nourish your body from the SOUL-out.
I'm on a mission to bring more whole foods to your plate and nourishment to your SOUL by providing you with the right tools and knowledge. I want to show you that eating healthy, plant-based foods, can be simple and and satisfying. My approach is a bit different from a traditional nutritionist. I focus on the individual as a whole by incorporating mind, body, and SOUL. I do not believe in restriction, deprivation, counting calories, diet foods, or excessive exercise. I believe in eating wholesome delicious REAL foods, having fun, feeling inspired, and feeling confident and beautiful in your own skin! Together we can develop healthy habits that will last a lifetime. The root to good health starts here.
M Y S T O R Y : I began my health journey when I was 14 and my father was suddenly diagnosed with lung cancer. My father had never smoked a cigarette in his life, but had a fairly unhealthy diet, was under a lot of stress, and overweight. This inspired my journey to understanding what true health is and what causes illness. This experience led me to understand how food can affect our health in positive and negative ways. It also led me to understand that what society, especially in America, tells us is healthy may not in fact be true. This experience sparked a light in me that has never been put out, and I knew from a very young age I wanted to help others with their health.
For the past 6 years I have worked in digital advertising. I was stressed-out, always tired, could not focus ( serious ADD), and just unhappy with my career. I knew that this was the life I was meant to live. I always wanted to help others and work in the health field ( I started college as a pre-med major ) but somehow got steered off course. One day, after spending far too much energy complaining about the job, the lightbulb finally went on in my head and it became so clear that my purpose was to serve others by offering guidance for preventative health. As soon as I became clear with myself and my goals, I decided to make it happen.
