Melissa is such a pleasure to listen to and learn from. She is very knowledgeable, scientific based and at the same time she is empathic and kind. She is not someone that would impose on you, but makes sure that she finds a way to work with your lifestyle and personality. I have attended her nutrition webinars and in-person cooking classes, and have always left with a sense of balance and ease. Her recipes are simple, unpretentious and delicious. I have learned how to make small changes in my food choices and self-care that make a big impact on how I feel. I had never checked ingredients on a food label at the market, and I was in for a big surprise - now I know how to look past the hype, and choose healthful items with clean ingredients for my family. Because of Melissa, I have incorporated adaptogenic herbal teas in my day to day diet, and I love feeling more grounded and calm.
