WHEN YOU'RE NOURISHED:
SIMPLE MEALS BECOME A SOURCE FOR CONNECTION AND JOY RATHER THAN A CHORE.
YOU’RE NOT DEFINED BY WHAT YOU DON’T EAT, BUT BY WHAT YOU DO.
YOU’RE NOT HEMMED IN BY SHOULDS AND DON’TS … YOU CRAVE THE FOODS THAT LOVE YOU TOO.
WHAT'S ON A NOURISHED PLATE?
THIS PICTURE OF A NOURISHED PLATE stands the test of centuries, of hundreds of studies following hundreds of thousands of people over dozens of years, and cultures the world over. It’s a plate that is weaned of the crutches we lean on and instead coaxes huge flavor from veggies themselves with simple techniques and healthy fats.
So even though each of us may have slightly different requirements due to allergies and sensitivities, I look at the nourished plate as a sound foundation to live by and a place to return after periods of exploration. It’s a simple, doable way of cooking, eating and thinking that brings health, wholeness and joy to serve you for a lifetime.
And truly, it changes everything.
BECOMING NOURISHED NOT ONLY SAVED MY LIFE,
IT MADE IT RICHER THAN I EVER THOUGHT IT COULD BE.
IT’S MY MISSION WITH NOURISH EVOLUTION TO GIVE YOU THE INSPIRATION, KNOW-HOW AND TOOLS TO GET YOU THERE.
---- HERE'S THE PATH ----
FIRST, I WANT TO BE CRYSTAL CLEAR: The NOURISH Evolution isn’t a diet.
Rather, it’s a path to build the skills, know-how, practices and mindset to get you confident cooking with nourishing, real foods (because, yes, cooking with real food is totally different than relying on processed food). I’ll tell you more about the how down below.
We call this path--this journey--the NOURISH Evolution for good reason. Making the shift from processed food to real food doesn’t happen overnight. It’s an evolution that occurs over time, with effort, intention and belief.
In my own experience and over 20 years of working with people to change the way they eat, I’ve identified five well-defined stages we all move through on the journey.
THESE ARE THE FIVE STAGES OF A NOURISH EVOLUTION
This is where everyone begins, eating whatever is in the path of least resistance and having no desire to change.
SEEKING SILVER BULLETS
This stage is all about "dieting." There's a desire to change, but not much will or know-how.
The Hump is the "something" that moves you beyond diets and towards real change. Often, though not always, it's a "life event."
This stage is when we forge our "eating practice," developing new habits through trial and error when making the shift from processed to real food.
You know you’re nourished when your default is cooking—and thoroughly enjoying—real food…within the demands and challenges of real life.
HERE ARE THE TOOLS WE'VE CREATED TO HELP YOU ON YOUR WAY
Over the years, we’ve listened closely to Nourish Evolutionaries -- those, like you, who are committed to making the journey from processed food to real food and a richer, more delicious life -- and have crafted offerings to help smooth the path.

THE NOURISH 10-DAY RESET is for people who know they want to eat more vegetables and less processed food, but don't know how to make that happen. Through daily videos and worksheets, I teach simple skills and techniques that take the stress and hassle out of cooking, and instill the habits and right mindset that make real food possible in real life.
