Edie, In a Nutshell
Hi, I’m Edie. Welcome to my corner of the web. I’m a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, freelance writer, and photographer. I have a passion for practical wellness, sustainable living, and delicious, wholesome food. I’m a new mom, navigating motherhood and family life in Denver, Colorado. This space doubles as my creative outlet and journal — a way to document everything from easy, seasonable recipes to all-things home, lifestyle, raising a baby, and more. Thank you for stopping by, and stay well.
Where did you get your health coaching certification? Through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. Prior to graduating from IIN in 2017, I worked in tech. In other words, I had no formal nutrition training. If you’re passionate about health and wellness, and are thinking about taking the leap, I couldn’t recommend IIN more. I experienced tremendous personal growth in my year at IIN, which helped me mend my relationship with food, my body, and it eventually gave me the courage to leave my previous job. It changed the course of my professional career. Most recently, it has laid the foundation for my current certification: becoming a Nutrition Consultant with a specialty in postpartum and babies nutrition.
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! You can read more about my package options, here, as well as sign up for a 15-minute consultation.
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? Currently, 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. These days, I typically drink coffee with a meal, as well as add coconut milk and collagen to aid in blood sugar regulation.
Do you have any tips for body acceptance? Absolutely. See here.
What is your relationship like with exercise? 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 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.
