As a Holistic Nutrition Consultant, I worked one-on-one with clients and taught nutrition seminars in CrossFit gyms across the United States. I also co-hosted 400 episodes of a weekly health radio show (The Balanced Bites Podcast), and wrote my first book, Practical Paleo, which went on to become a New York Times bestseller—on the list for nearly two straight years.
My signature program, The 21-Day Sugar Detox Guide Book, also became a New York Times bestseller. Since then I've gone on to publish The 21-Day Sugar Detox Cookbook and co-authored Mediterranean Paleo Cooking. My first food product line, Balanced Bites Spices, was developed in 2016 and The 21-Day Sugar Detox Daily Guide in 2018 and, most recently, Keto Quick Start: A Beginner's Guide to a Whole-Foods Ketogenic Diet with over 100 Recipes. The revival of our prepared meals was inspired by the recipes found in Keto Quick Start and new meals are being added frequently.
