What started as a laundry list of health problems opened the door to my life's work – helping women heal their digestion with the power of food. 

Cozy up, I'll tell you the story

Hi! I’m Kristen Barrett, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP), mother of two beautiful girls, and lover of all things health & wellness. 

Like most of us, I was raised on the Standard American Diet (SAD), and when I became an adult myself, I stuck with what I knew. I chose whole wheat over white, bought organic milk & eggs, and made a point to exercise a few times each week.

Honestly, I thought I was in pretty good shape.

But when I decided to become a mother, I was told that children may not be in the cards for me. My battle with infertility was my first real taste of just how powerful food can be. 




After being officially diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and diving head first into the research, things really started to click for me...everything we eat either works to heal or damage our bodies. 

When I finally became pregnant, I took nutrition into my own hands, because by this time the fire had already been lit within me. I quit eating refined carbs, sugar, and grains and focused on high-quality healthy fats. I watched my PCOS diminish, my gut inflammation dissolve, my food sensitivities disappear & my mind become razor sharp. I was hooked.




I BELIEVE IN:

Freedom, double-shot lattes, problem solving, accountability, self-empowerment, radical healing, things I cannot see. 

I'm NOT ABOUT:

Small talk, rule following. mediocrity, bandaid solutions, guesswork, playing small, self-deprivation

YOU CAN FIND ME:

Parenting my two amazing girls, coaching my badass clients, making bone broth, camping with my partner. 

daily rituals:

Morning affirmations, journaling, moments of gratitude, music, healthy fats & good skincare.

I’ve since devoted myself to the practice of "food as medicine" & to helping women heal using functional nutrition. With the power of food & lifestyle, you can restore your gut to optimal health & live the life you're meant to live.
