Hi! I’m Stephanie, a registered dietitian who helps others discover wellness without food rules and diet obsessions. True health isn’t achieved when you reach an arbitrary number on the scale or deprive yourself of a specific list of foods—but it took me a good 30 years to accept this reality.
Back in my college days, I was obsessing over grams of sugar in my granola bar, tracking every single calorie, and hiding behind debilitating body image issues. My perfectionism only intensified as I made my way through a weight-centric masters program in dietetics, and a rule-obsessed clinical oncology position thereafter.
I’m so grateful for the day that Intuitive Eating and Health At Every Size® resources landed in front of me. The scientific evidence against food rules and diet culture is astounding, and it was enough to shake my “clean eating” nutrition philosophy to the core.
As a registered dietitian, I was feeling so much pressure to model the perfect lifestyle, but intuitive eating set me free. I could eat for joy and satisfaction and be healthy. I wasn’t a crappy person for eating a sandwich on white bread every once in awhile. And I didn’t need to label myself as a vegan, vegetarian, clean eater, or anything else I didn’t really want to be. I could finally just be Steph. I was enough. This realization was mind-opening and soul-expanding for me.
Now, The Grateful Grazer is so much bigger than the clean eating food blog of its infancy. Through my simple recipes, holistic wellness posts, and one-on-one nutrition coaching work, I hope to guide you toward your own soul-feeding wellness breakthrough. Ready to join me?
