Our Philosophy

Luminary Nutrition LLC is dedicated to helping our client’s shine bright and stay that way. We believe in helping clients identify and heal their relationship with food, their bodies, and their health so that they can find peace within themselves and shine bright again. We want to help our clients put an end to health-harming practices and diets. Instead, we help clients develop their own personalized nutrition plans that nourish their bodies and souls in a sustainable way. As part of our efforts for sustainable health, in conjunction with a growing body of current research, we choose not to make weight our focus. Everyone has a right to pursue health regardless of their body size and to be treated with value and respect. We choose to look past numbers on the scale and instead look directly to improving health markers and behaviors that stand in the way of sustainable health.
