Exciting News...

by - 11:57 PM

I am so excited to share my first round of exciting news with you this week!

A year ago when I came up with the idea for The Fit Girl's Kitchen, I wasn't really sure of what my path was or what this blog would be about. I knew I liked fitness and had a lot to say and teach, and I knew I liked healthy cooking and people seemed to want to know about my recipes.

What I have discovered since this site launched in January is how much I really enjoy writing and teaching people about how to live a happy, healthy, balanced life. I have also been pleasantly surprised to discover that people actually want to hear my advice and now seek me out to provide more of it. And I enjoy doing that more than anything that I have ever done professionally.

So, I am thrilled to announce that I have decided to get my certification as a nutritional health coach!! I have enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and one year from now, I will be a licensed Holistic Healthcare Practitioner!

I am so beyond excited that I have found an opportunity to do what I love and will be able to spread my knowledge to help even more people on their path to living a healthy life.

What to expect on the blog

This program focuses mainly on dietetic theory, which is something that has always interested me anyways. Over the next six months, I will be studying all of the various diet concepts (primary, vegan, low-carb, Ayurveda, Zone, etc.) to understand how they work and who would most benefit from them.

While I'm doing this, I will also be experimenting with recipes that will fit into each diet, which I will definitely be sharing on this blog!

The other focus of the course is how to inspire others and generate a movement towards living a healthy active life. I feel like this blog is already a great stepping stone to that, so I am excited to practice even more of what I preach and hopefully continue to inspire others along the way.


I have already been so inspired by other alumni of the program and what they have been able to create - I know this is the right path for me. Some of these IIN graduates include:

I have not yet decided what services I will be offering after graduating in April, but am excited to learn more about what types of coaching I will be able to provide at a corporate, educational and personal level. Stay tuned!

Check back on Friday for my second big announcement of the week! (Hint: it involves running AND superheroes...)
