Rachael Hartley Nutrition

We believe that eating is about more than just food.

Eating is a vital act of self care. Yes, it’s the way we provide our body with the energy and nutrients it needs to function, but eating is so much more than that. Eating is a way we connect with others, through family meals, dinners out with friends, and gifts of homemade soup and casserole given to community members going through a hard time. Through food and eating, we are able to celebrate and honor our cultural background, and that of others. As human beings, we are biologically hardwired to seek pleasure in eating. It’s for these reasons, and so many more that we know good nutrition can’t be found in a list of what you supposedly should and shouldn’t eat.

Our goal is to help your nourish a healthier relationship with food and learn to take care of your body, rather than punish it through rigid diets and deprivation. We want to help you clear the confusing clutter of diet rules and misinformation from your brain, and refill it with skills and knowledge that help you enact a flexible approach to food and nutrition. We hope that our work helps you learn to eat in a way that fuels a happier, and healthier life.
