My name is Lakee and I humbly call myself "the nutrition junkie" because I am absolutely addicted to affecting change in my clients' health through whole foods healing. I've spent a good portion of my life either eating junk food or on a diet, trying to heal and especially thin myself through synthetic pharmaceuticals, ingesting almost every version of a diet pill or fat burner I had heard about and creating inflammation within my body. My story came to a crossroad when one of my soul sisters in life was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer and I picked up a Kris Carr book for my dear friend. It was at that moment that my eyes opened…wide! I didn't realize it but I was a nutrition "junkie" in the making. I started implementing change in my own life and before I knew it I was enrolled in school and on my way to becoming a trained Holistic Nutrition Practitioner. Today I am an advocate for, not only my own health, but also the health of my clients. It's my passion to share the knowledge that the body has the innate ability to heal itself, given the right fuel. I now know that the "thin body" that I craved for so long is a sign of optimal health and easy to achieve when it is cleansed and given the right balance of nutrient-dense foods. I will help you navigate through the confusing and misleading food climate that we currently live within. I'm here to educate you on the facts. Did you know that more than 90% of our current food system is riddled with preservatives, additives, pesticides, herbicides, MSG's and GMO's? These chemicals are making us fatter and sicker than ever before! Worse yet, they are making our children sick! What we eat is a human responsibility and it affects future generations. Together we will get back to the basics of nature and back to the energy and vibrant health your body craves. It's my mission to share the concept that real food can provide potent medicine, energy and empowerment by balancing the conflicting needs and expectations of a modern day lifestyle, and the ability to put nutritious AND delicious food on the table. I will teach you what you need to know from A to Zinc!
Peace, love and greens! Lakee
