Welcome to Jess Hart Nutrition! I am so glad that you found me.
Food, and what to eat and whether to eat it, has ruled most of my life. I spent years seeing food as something to eschew to make myself physically smaller, mentally punishing myself when that didn’t work as well as I hoped. After having daughters, however, I realized that I wanted them to be raised in a world that cherishes their health over their weight. And I knew that I would have to be the one to teach them what being healthy really looks like. I started thinking about health and what eating healthy actually is. I read books, watched documentaries, and listened to podcasts. However, I found so much conflicting advice as I began devouring this information: Paleo or Vegan, Raw or Cooked, Gluten or Gluten-Free? Looking for more concrete answers, I enrolled in the Natural Nutrition program at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, earning the designation of R.H.N. (Registered Holistic Nutritionist). That wasn’t quite enough for me, so I enrolled in the Academy of Culinary Nutrition to learn how to put all of that knowledge into practice. Through those programs, I now understand that we are all unique, with individual nutritional needs based on our genetic make-up, where we are in our lives, and even our personal preferences.
My own journey has brought me to a place where I am continually learning which foods support my health, and adjusting this as my physical, emotional, and mental needs fluctuate with life. My goal in working with you is to help you find those same things: Which foods feel best for your body? What helps you reduce stress? What lifestyle adjustments can make you feel amazing?
When I’m not working with clients and cooking away in my kitchen, you’ll find me reading all the books, drinking black coffee, nerding out with spreadsheets, binge-watching RHOC (I know, I know), and hanging out with the fam.
