Welcome to my blog! I am excited to start sharing recipes and nutritional tidbits. Feel free to email me questions or suggestions. Have a favorite recipe you want to share? Send me a note.
My name is Maria and I am a Health and Nutrition Coach based in NYC. I am passionate about keeping active, eating well and feeling great. I love helping others learn more about food choices and lifestyle changes that make all of the difference. I am a competitive athlete, a visual artist and nutrition nerd.
I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of a person's life are connected. Does stress or lack of quality sleep cause you to overeat? Does low energy prevent you from exercising/training? It's necessary to look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.
My approach is not to obsess about counting calories or to create lists of restrictions. Instead, I work with my clients to create a happy, healthy way of eating. Together we will work to reach your goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, recovering more quickly from workouts and maximizing energy. You will develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes.
