Hi, I'm Jessica, your Food Foundation Guru...

...some call me the detox queen because I can help you through your detox like a champ. Others call me Dr. Eggplant because I can help infertile women get knocked up. My methodology is easy and 100% holistic. I use functional medicine and nutrient dense foods to help you fall in love with your food, your body, and your life!

Education

My life has been one continuous study of healing from an undergrad at SDSU, a Yoga/Ayurveda certification from The Energy Center in New York, Functional Anatomy certification with Irene Dowd from Juilliard, FNTP certification through the Nutritional Therapy Association, to a Masters of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine from UWS.

My personal success came after a miscarriage opened my eyes to reveal my Standard American Diet aka the SAD diet was killing me gently. I switched to eating nutrient dense foods and within a month lost 8 pounds, stopped experiencing migraines, no more acid reflux, and best of all became pregnant with my daughter. It was an easy healing process and I’m passionate about helping you heal gracefully. Unlike the model of one size fits all, I work closely to help you find your perfect diet for vibrant health.

Speaking

I love to talk real food. I can offer talks on how to improve your diet and health without giving up your life’s pleasures. Let me know if you would like the Food Foundation Guru to speak at your next event. My specialty talks are for those of you that want to help change the whole family's diet without anyone noticing. These changes have been seen to have beneficial effects on digestive troubles, autoimmune issues, infertility, ADD, autism symptoms, and poor behaviors in children.

As Vice Chair of Slow Food South Bay and a member of the Weston A. Price Foundation,  I support organizations that believe in healthy comfort food.

Family

I have two kids and live in the bay area with my husband, kittens, and a garden full of chickens. I know busy so bring it on! I will help guide you through this process even with your slammed day planner.

Inspired by my mama, who knows her way around a kitchen, I've always had a passion for food. I spend most of my time making up healthy comfort food recipes for you and your busy family.

My family loves to travel and try traditional foods from around the world. Check out my recipes or YouTube videos to see how I change delicious dishes to use healthIER ingredients.

If you're still reading, I love you and you need to sign up for my newsletter, so I can send you free healthy guides, recipes, and the keys on how to get into my fabulous detox.

Your wellness muse,

Jessica, MS, FNTP
