Who I help: I am a special type of Registered Dietitian who works to help people re-connect with they're health again. Whether this has been wake-up call to re-dedicate nutritional changes or attempt to gain nutritional clarity:
1. Food first
2. Enrich intakes, habits, and lifestyle
3. Be intentional but not stodgy
My name is Denise Coventry, I’m a fifth generation Arizonan. My formative years began on a multi-generational family citrus ranch, where my social justice skills in practicing fairness emerged. As the first child in a family of four, I protected all small ranch animals through spirited tantrums, saving the hens from processing day and released all meat rabbits from the rabbitry prior to their untimely fate.
Although not a vegetarian, my appreciation for food’s impact developed into an education in Nutrition, when I learned Vitamin C was studied at ASU. The same Vitamin C found in our citrus! As fate would have it, in the pursuit of understanding Vitamin C, I met my muse of 28 years in that chemistry class resulting in our marriage. Two spectacular children later, a driven career climb, an odd and sudden realization that life had taken a hamster wheel affect that needed change. The painful realization would require an entire lifestyle (downsize), face the reality that anxiety, sleeplessness, GI trouble that interfered with nutrient absorption was real.
Today, as a Registered Dietitian, I am sensitive to the needs of women perfectionists in their forties, and help them nutritionally transition from near-burnout. Together we work through issues like GI distress from anxiety, and end the emotionally defeating cycle of skipping day-meals and night-overeating.
Our program addresses the whole self, including food philosophy, habits, nurture intuitive cue’s, and regarding our bodies positively. We also find the physical movement that brings joy to reconnect to the many facets of fulfillment and comfort in one’s own skin.
Whether you prefer hands on applications or research everything you can first, feel free to connect with me on social media, weekly podcast/radio show:" Your Daily Dose of Nutrition" Saturdays at 4:00pm KFNX 1100AM , a few videos YouTube, articles from the blog (last page below!), or recipes on Pinterest, I want to be your trusted resource!
