Hey there! Thanks for stopping by Fresh Fit Flourish. Let’s get to know each other!
I'm Bri, a Registered Dietitian based in St. Paul, MN. I have a balanced, real and fresh approach to food and nutrition. My philosophy does not revolve around diets, restriction or calorie counting, but rather an on an all foods fit mentality. I recommend a diet that contains protein, fat AND carbs in the form of all foods, including lots of plants (hi, veggies!) and ice cream. I support all ways of eating as long as they allow you to live your best life!
My favorite part of being a dietitian is translating complicated nutritional science into simple, every-day life habits. I desire to teach others that it is possible to be healthy while enjoying the foods and activities they love. Additionally, I love showing people that healthy, nutritious foods do not have to be tasteless and boring.
I have a functional & holistic approach to nutrition and health, and have completed several trainings and attended conferences that are related to these topics. I believe that the majority of health issues that our country currently faces can be prevented through changes in food intake, lifestyle and mindset. I also know that many physical and mental health issues are about so much more than food, and my aim when working with people is to help them make that connection.
Fresh Fit Flourish is my platform to inspire health, wellness and balance so that YOU can live your best nourished life. Here's what you can expect to find here:
- Recipes of ALL kinds, from vegan dishes to green smoothies to granola to sandwiches.
- Evidence-based nutrition blog posts on a variety of topics. Some of my current passions include intuitive eating, meal planning and community nutrition.
- A look into my lifestyle and daily eating habits to give you ideas and inspiration.
In addition to what you'll find on my blog, I also offer a variety of individualized nutrition services. These range from nutrition coaching to grocery store tours. What you get out of these services really depends on what YOU need. I meet my clients where they are at and provide them the level of support that best suites them. Maybe you need someone to help you set nutrition goals or get to the bottom of a digestion issue, or maybe you just need some creative tips to inspire you to make some lifestyle changes. We will work together considering your circumstances, including lifestyle, schedule, budget, family life and more. Learn more about the services that I offer here.
The Fresh Fit Flourish Philosophy
Fresh, because our bodies and minds function best when we give them a fresh dose of what they need (sometimes that's kale, sometimes that's cookies).
Fit, because movement is essential for overall health and vibrancy.
Flourish, because a balanced lifestyle with plenty of nourishing foods, movement, rest and self-care is exactly what you need to thrive and flourish through all of life's adventures.
