Hi, I’m Christal!
I am the owner and author of this little space on the web, Nutrition in the Kitch. I have an undeniable passion for delicious food and wellness. I began my career as a certified nutritionist in 2010 and began my own private practice for nutritional consulting, Pure & Simple Nutrition. I consulted for several years and with the encouragement of my friends, family, and clients I decided to combine my nutritional knowledge with my love for food and put it all together into a blog to share with the world….and so, Nutrition in the Kitch was born!
I believe that healthy, whole foods can not only make you feel fantastic but they can truly taste delicious too. I love taking indulgent recipes and altering them to increase the nutritional value without sacrificing the flavour or beauty, you can search my hundreds of recipes here! My “kitch” is the place where I always feel the most relaxed and creating delicious, healthy meals is the best therapy for me! Work aside, I am married to my wonderful husband Justin, and a mama to my beautiful daughter Hemsley, as well as three very spoiled rescue cats. I love to travel, stay active, and spend quality time with my friends and family. I do my best to enjoy the blessings of each day by keeping the God at the center of my life and my faith is truly foundational to who I am.
I follow a flexible way of eating that consists of gluten free and dairy free whole-foods, mostly unprocessed, with indulgences here and there (I absolutely love dark chocolate and dairy-free ice cream!). After having been down the road of strict dieting I’ve come to realize that sustainable health must be balanced and enjoyable. I do not diet anymore and I do not promote dieting, I like to instead teach my clients and readers about accountability and sustainable nutrition that works for them, the perfectly unique and wonderful person they are.
I love to help women experience freedom with food and find an enjoyable, non-restrictive, and attainable way of eating that helps them feel energized, joyful, happy-in-their-own-skin, and embrace the most amazing version of themselves, and I love to inspire women and mothers to eat well, cook often, and enjoy life!
