If you are looking to amp up your health, Tammy recommends her free nutrition talk as a great first step. It has been a catalyst for many people who have transformed their health!
There are a handful of areas that tend to cause the most confusion when it comes to our nutrition. We have been programmed to think the answer to good health is in avoiding carbs and amping up the protein from animal foods. While there are carbs to avoid or reduce, we often don’t realize that they are not all created equal! If you are avoiding carbs altogether, you are missing many foods that should, in fact, be foundational in a healthy diet.
The right carbohydrates should form the foundation of your diet. They are our primary source of energy. If you feel sluggish, you may need more un-refined carbs!
Our protein needs are very overstated, and you can actually get protein from a variety of plant foods!
It is not about portion control, counting calories or measuring grams of protein, carbs or fat! It is simply about choosing the right foods! You will be full before you can overeat.
The key to long-term health and vitality is not about the adding in or taking away from specific groups or types of food, but actually about the totality of your diet.
There is a big difference between short-term results and long-term health!
Tammy meets people where they are as she passionately helps them understand that much of what we have been taught is not leading us to optimal health. She paints a clear picture of what does & the control we have over our health outcomes.
Tammy has a passion for sharing the ‘why’ and ‘how’ behind easily adding more plant-based foods to our diets. She guides audiences of all sizes in making meaningful and achievable changes in their wellness.
She has studied with world-renowned leaders to truly understand the importance of our food to help prevent and reverse health issues, many of which appeared in the life-changing documentary, “Forks Over Knives.”

Tammy's classes provide very unique research-based information about nutrition. I've attended several of the same class and pick up something new each time. I love how she suggests to start slow if you want to make changes in your life. Too often people try to make a lot of changes all at once and end up quitting. Tammy makes getting healthy easy and sensible.
Since balancing my yoga practice with Tammy's Hatha style of teaching, I've not only gained more flexibility and strength but a better appreciation for correct alignment. Tammy really knows her stuff! She encourages everyone to gain the most from every pose and in a safe way. It could be the slightest tweak of an ankle, foot, etc. and she will see and correct it. Tammy, thank you for opening up your heart and home and sharing your passion!
Tammy is approachable and very interested in educating people about the truth in nutrition research. She has a wealth of knowledge from top medical professionals and researchers that you must learn! I recommend taking her nutrition class and then choosing to put that wisdom into action. Your body will thank you.
Tammy is a wonderful yoga instructor. She has taught Yoga at my clinic. She has assisted me in instructing some of my patients on how to maintain neutral spine positioning with certain yoga poses. She has a keen sense of spine and joint alignment, and this enables her to modify her clients' program to adjust for their musculoskeletal weaknesses. I highly recommend her services.
