We recently sat down with Sarah to hear more about Wellbeing.Wellbought. Here is more about her + her services!
1. What services do you offer?
I customize my plan for each unique client! However, I mostly focus on health coaching, meal planning, grocery store guides/lists, and recipe development. I never want to feel like I'm stuck inside a box, & I definitely don't want my clients to feel that way either!
2. What specific services are helpful for brides?
Every bride wants to look and feel their best on her big day. Through my own personal experience, I've found that restrictive diets & eating food that tastes like cardboard have never made me feel my best! Food (and yes, even healthy food) can and should be flavorful. Customized meal guides are a great way to help a bride stay on track without dreading meal time. At the same time, "health" is made up of so much more than the food we put in our mouths. One-on-one health coaching allows me to work with the client in multiple facets of life including spirituality, physical activity, relationships and career development.
3. How'd you get into this?
About 5 years ago, I decided it was time for a lifestyle change. I "amped up" my work out routine, I started cooking and meal prepping at home, and I started listening to my body. It wasn't until about 2 years ago that I realized my food was boring and I should start eating more than bland turkey burgers and veggies! Cooking became a fun, creative outlet for me. I started sharing my food creations through social media (@wellbeing.wellbought) and shortly thereafter, I enrolled in school. The Institute for Integrative Nutrition has taught me so much and opened my eyes even more to the world of health and nutrition.
4. As a recent bride yourself, what are your top health tips for brides?
Stop obsessing over your weight. Listen to your body and not a fad diet. Different things work for different people! For me personally, increasing my proteins and healthy fats while simultaneously increasing weights within my workout routine helped me feel my best. If you're starving come wedding week, you will inevitably feels cranky and moody- and trust me, nobody wants to be around a bridezilla!
5. I'm guessing you are wanting your clients to make this a lifestyle? Why do you recommend making lifestyle changes verse a "diet"?
Absolutely. I am a strong believer in the belief behind "bioindividuality". Meaning, one person's pain is another person's pleasure. There is no "one size fits all" meal plan or exercise routine. It takes experimentation to figure out what works for you. We are all uniquely made, and I encourage my clients to embrace the "what works best for me" mentality.
