Welcome to my blog! I’m Yvonne Matthews, NC, holistic nutritionist and herbalist. I founded my nutrition consultation business: Nutrition Designed. I believe that what we consume is a reflection of how we live our life. It directly affects our mind, body and soul. My desire is to share this knowledge in a simple and fun way so you can feel your best and enjoy life!
In a nutshell (pun intended), I believe nutrition can be fun and healthy. We don’t need to overhaul everything, unless of course you want to. I don’t believe in taking away your favorite foods or asking you to do anything you aren’t willing. I love food. I love cooking at home and I love going out to restaurants. Yes, food is medicine. Food should also be fun, delicious and enjoyable. Balance is best and so is feeling amazing! Also, I am pretty sure I have the best clients! If you are interested in learning more, you read more here: about me and my wellness philosophy.
I was born in Palm Springs, California. Yup. People are from there. Ha! After high school I left “the desert” to attend Georgetown University in Washington DC. I graduated there with a B.S., double major in mathematics and studio art, a minor in economics and a concentration in photography. Then moved to Los Angeles, where I was a web/graphic/UX designer for over 10 years before I move to Colorado to switch careers and help people through nutrition. I live in Denver with my husband and 2 rescue pups. When I am not consulting nutrition clients, teaching classes at Apothecary Tinctura and as a marathoner and triathlete, quite literally running around the city. I am a nut for the outdoors and love anything that makes me sweat, from running to tennis to hiking to cycling and swimming, and more.
I hope you will enjoy reading about my escapades with nutrition, food, sweating, designing, and enjoying great music! If you have any nutrition questions or just want to say hello please do!
