Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.
The concept of food as medicine was first introduced to Carly when she was living and working for a non-profit in Peru, South America. She helped teach health and hygiene to kids and teens living in a rural community. Many of the villagers were losing their eyesight due to a vitamin A deficiency; a critical nutrient for vision, which she later learned is one of the leading preventable causes of blindness in developing nations. Carly discovered that vitamin A could easily be found in sweet potatoes, squash, and carrots, to name a few foods. From that point on, she’s been feverishly studying nutrition, and has been on a mission ever since to help others learn about the connection between their food and their health.
Carly helps people make healthy and nutritious food more accessible. She doesn’t believe in deprivation, fad diets, or a one-size-fits-all approach. People are unique beings with unique needs. She works with adults, teens, and children for nutrition counseling, meal planning, pantry makeovers, grocery store tours, and individual and group cooking classes.
Nutrition topics Carly often works with, but are not limited to, include:
- Food Allergies/Sensitivities
- Digestive Issues
- Weight loss/Weight Gain
- Heart Health
- High Blood Pressure
- Autoimmune Disease
- Perinatal Nutrition (Fertility, Pregnancy, Postpartum)
- Emotional/Intuitive Eating
Carly is currently accepting new patients.
