HI ANDREA, HOW DID YOUR JOURNEY GO AFTER YOU STARTED WORKING WITH NICOLETTE?
In my first meeting with Nicolette I quickly realized many of the foods I had been eating were working against me. My morning coffees, daily sugar binges, booze sessions and anxiety were hindering me on my path to optimal health.
At first, I had the misguided notion that I could cut out a few foods and immediately be on my way to better health. Unfortunately, it is not quite this simple. Reversing years of poor choices does take time. Giving up bad habits and addictive foods is no easy task, but through my teachings with Nicolette I knew my life would be better if I committed to making changes.
I started my journey with small steps such as cutting out animal products, switching my morning coffee for a fresh pressed juice, restricting my alcohol consumption and saying goodbye to sugar laden baked goodies. I learned how to make nutrient dense plant-based dishes that were delicious! I was pleased to see immediate improvements in my health.
My anxiety disappeared, my brain fog lifted, and I began to sleep much better. I focused on eating a plant-based diet along with whole unprocessed organic foods. With Nicolette I learned how to heal my gut naturally, so I could begin to absorb the nutrients from the wonderful foods I was eating.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN EATING REAL TO HEAL?
It has been over a year since I began working with Nicolette and started to Eat Real to Heal myself. I can say that she changed my life. She is an inspirational woman and made me feel like I could do anything. She opened my mind to dreaming big and living my best life.
When your body is nourished with plant based whole foods you have the energy to do more and hopefully help others along the way. For anyone who is struggling with any of the issues I have listed I would consider making small changes to your diet.
Our digestive health is incredibly important to our overall wellbeing in both mind and body. “The food you eat can be the safest and most powerful form of medicine, or the slowest form of poison”. I learned first-hand the power of food as medicine and am thankful for having met Nicolette and had the opportunity to learn from her.
