Even though we all know that Valentine’s Day is supposed to be about appreciating the ones we love, it has somehow turned into appreciating chocolate.
Let’s be real here: any way you slice it, food equals love.
Food is a way we show love, and also how we receive it. I grew up in a home where this was all too true. My mom always cooked delicious meals for our family – you may have heard me mention that Coq au Vin was a regular Wednesday night occurrence. Her food was infused with love. I bonded with my dad over giant soft pretzels, and my brother and I had a ritual of getting Vanilla Coke floats together.
As I navigated my way into the adult working world, I knew I wanted to do something with food, I just didn’t know what.
I knew I didn’t want to work in a restaurant or necessarily go to culinary school, but I was obsessed with cooking and sharing my creations with my then boyfriend Scott.
That’s when at just the right time I heard about the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I didn’t know where this would lead, or what my career or job would look like after going through the program, but I did know that this was something I was so passionate about. Without a real plan but just pure passion I trusted that it would lead to something, or at least provide me with more clarity on where I needed to go.
And boy did it.
While attending IIN’s health coach training program, I learned that I could have a business (and actually make really good money) doing what I loved – I could cook for a living in my own way, while still having the flexibility to travel and be my own boss.
This program changed my life, and I don’t say that lightly. Right after graduating, I created a successful health coaching practice and cooking show to teach others how to truly nourish their bodies. Now I wake up every morning energized and excited to see clients, shoot videos, and appear on national television as a go-to wellness expert.
I never would have gotten to where I am today without IIN.
Do you love to create healthy recipes? Does the thought of exploring a new health food store excite you? Do you get fired up talking to friends, family and co-workers about kombucha and bone broth? If this sounds like you, check out the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s health coach training program.
Now is the *perfect time* because we health coaches are celebrating the 3rd Annual Health Coach Week!
