Hi, I’m Edie.
Welcome to my corner of the web. I’m a double-certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach (INHC) and Nutrition Consultant (CNC). I help women navigate fertility, pregnancy, and the postpartum time period. I also freelance write and develop recipes for like-minded brands.
I have a passion for practical wellness, menstrual health, sustainable living, and delicious, wholesome food. I’m a mom, navigating motherhood and family life in Denver, Colorado. This space doubles as my creative outlet and journal — a way to document everything from seasonable recipes to all-things home, hormone health, raising a baby, and more. Thank you for stopping by.
Where did you get your health coaching certifications? Through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and Oh Baby Academy. I graduated from IIN in 2017 and from Oh Baby in 2021. Prior, I worked in tech and had no formal nutrition training (but, I had a clear passion!). You can read about my IIN experience, here. Ultimately, it changed the course of my professional career and helped me mend my relationship with food and my body. I couldn’t recommend it enough. Furthermore, it inspired me to become a Nutrition Consultant. I have a specialty in postpartum and babies nutrition. If you’re passionate about women’s health and wellness and are thinking about taking the leap, I’m happy to chat with you!
When were you diagnosed with PCOS? In 2016. You can read more about my PCOS-to-pregnant journey here.
Are you currently taking on new health coaching clients? Yes! As a health coach, I predominantly help women balance their hormones, support their menstrual cycles, and nourish their bodies during pregnancy and postpartum. Interested in learning more? Here are my package options.
What are your favorite eats + drinks in Denver? In no particular order: The Cookery at Myrtle Hill, Rise & Shine, Sushi Den, Uno Mas Taqueria, Kaos Pizza, Just BE Kitchen, Steam Espresso Bar, Wildflower, Devil’s Food Bakery, Sweet Cooie’s, Blue Pan Pizza, Uncle, Safta, Root Down, and Watercourse Foods.
Do you meal prep? Not in the traditional sense. Instead of meal prepping over the weekend, I tend to cook in batches. Meaning, if I am roasting veggies for dinner, I roast more than we’ll need that night. That way, we’ll have leftovers. I typically make chia pudding and have other ‘fast’ food on hand — washed + sliced carrots, bananas, walnuts, hummus, frozen veggie burgers, etc.
Do you drink coffee? Yes, but I’ve gone through seasons of my life where I don’t. During pregnancy, it made me nauseous, so I switched to matcha. I also didn’t drink coffee while I breastfed (but it is generally considered safe). These days, I typically drink coffee with a meal, as well as add non-dairy creamer and collagen to aid in blood sugar regulation. I love Cosecha Del Sur coffee. They’re a local coffee roaster in Denver (use code EDIE15 for a discount on your first order!).
Do you have any tips for body acceptance? Absolutely. See here.
What is your relationship like with exercise? Given the demands of running a business and raising a toddler, I have very short windows to exercise. I gravitate towards strength training for 20-30 minutes via my Peloton, but chasing around my little boy is no easy feat. Read more about my exercise journey, here.
What supplements do you take? I don’t believe in taking an array of supplements. However, I always take vitamin D and when appropriate, a prenatal. On weeks when we don’t consume wild-caught fish, I take an omega-3. I also take vitamin B12 if I’m not craving as much animal protein. For probiotics, I try and support my gut health from a variety of fermented foods, but as insurance, this a trusted brand.
