Kara Sorensen is super-knowledgeable and easy to connect with. She's an acupuncturist with a Masters in nutrition. And a real vocation for food & nutrition-related issues, from a holistic perspective. She does wonderful work with teens and adults, consulting in person, via phone and skype. Her website has lots of info. http://www.karasorensen.com/ Ellen
Hmmm. I think you are overthinking this. No need for a nutritionist. Just read DIET FOR A NEW AMERICA by John Robbins and say hello to a healthier life. Or don't even bother with that. Just get a vegetarian cookbook from the library and away you go. The more animal products you remove from your diet, the healthier and slimmer you get. It is as simple as that. And get some exercise fer crimineys sake. sean
Chalyn Newman is an excellent nutrition and fitness consultant who works with families. With her expertise as a nutritional consultant I am confident that she can advise you and your daughter about how to eat nutritious vegetarian meals that will help you both stay healthy and energetic. Besides having children of her own she also has a masters in education, and works well with children and teens.
Chalyn has worked with my family and a number of my friends and has an excellent knowledge base, and a warm, enthusiastic demeanor. Before Chalyn advised me I struggled with almost a daily afternoon dip in my energy and some other minor health problems that were cleared up once I committed to changing my diet. I learned so much about food, how to plan meals for me and my family and how to eat to help me stay energetic throughout the day. She is also a fabulous cook and will provide you with delicious vegetarian recipes, and even cooking lessons if you want that.
I would highly recommend Chalyn for anyone who is concerned about the health and well being of their family. Chalyn can be reached on her cell phone: (510) 520-5929 and would be happy to speak to you about nutrition and fitness. Good Luck! Healthy Mama
