My goal is to inspire, empower and educate you to achieve your goals. I believe in taking a balanced approach by focusing on individual needs and personal lifestyle. We will together develop the best plan for you to live happy and healthy!
I’m Abby: nutrition guru, healthy cooking enthusiast and fitness junkie or more technically put, certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist, chef and founder of BalancedBites, children’s cooking instructor, and NPC bodybuilder.
I have been studying health and nutrition over a decade, hold a bachelors of science degree in Biological Sciences-Nutrition from the University of Illinois, graduate coursework at National University of Health Sciences and several avenues of professional culinary education.
I discovered my joy for both fitness and cooking at a very young age; pretty much was raised into both for that matter. However I did not put the two passions directly together until my mid-twenties in pursuit of life-health-diet balance.. being able to "have my cake and eat it too" you could say. ;)
I find so much fulfillment in making BalancedBites, guiding clients through their health journey and forming delicious, mostly plant based recipes to share!
Cheers and enjoy!
