your guide to creating a balanced, seasonal, and sustainable diet
As a nutritionist, I crunch numbers. I count calories and calculate percentages of protein, carbohydrate, fat, alcohol, and fiber. I make recommendations based on evidence-based scientific formulas.
All very technical and rational.
But as a home cook feeding a family, I vacillate between the rules of the formula or recipe and the time of the year tuning into what feels right for the day or the season.
As a yogi, I respond to a disciplined routine... rise, meditate, practice. But my experience as a mother has taught me that nothing is truly under my control.
I follow the evidence-based rules and the scientific recommendations. I also know that skirting the rules is human and often just as important. As much as I am trained in the rational measured approach, I also believe in the nonrational and do not have to be convinced that there is so much more to us than meets the eye.
At yourgoodcarma, we appreciate the system so that results follow but we are also flexible so that following the system is sustainable.
I got you, my friend, let's head down this road together.
