Hi, I’m Sarah!
I help busy women on the go (just like you) keep it simple with real food—so you can live a more beautiful, intentional life.
As a nutrition coach, healthy lifestyle & wellness expert, two-time bestselling cookbook author, and someone who spent way too long having an ALL or NOTHING mentality with food, I’m all about figuring out ways to help you create and design the life you’re made for.
My signature process is a unique blend of nutrition, neuroscience, psychology, and the power of daily routine, because if there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that your health doesn’t exist in compartments and silos. It’s not just about eating perfect food, and squeezing those workouts in— it’s about your physical, mental and emotional health. That all three components are necessary and they’re all intertwined deeply with each other. So I’m here to help you tap in, upgrade old programming, understand who you are and what your body needs to thrive, and to simplify the whole process.
I’ve served thousands of women through my cookbooks, seasonal meal plans, wellness courses, and beloved 5×15 philosophy of recipes (5 ingredients or less and 15 minutes or less) … all thanks to a little trip to Italy in college.
Fresh off a study abroad trip and in awe of how Italians approached food and life so differently, I set out on a mission: to take what I’d seen and put it into practice in my real life. I started to try and ignore the numbers, the calorie and carb counting, and the obsessing—and instead, just eat simple, real food when I was hungry.
And it changed everything for me.
Because here’s the thing: what we eat directly affects how we show up in life—and I quickly began seeing how our feelings, thoughts, and emotions were crazily connected to our food and our overall health … but there was just one problem.
That no one was talking about that: the full picture. That what you ate mattered, but so did how you talked to yourself and how you took care of yourself overall: physically, mentally and emotionally. That you needed all of those things to be aligned and nourished to create a healthy lifestyle that actually lasts.
So, in 2012, I started sharing what I learned, coupling that with a degree in nutrition and health coaching to start a full-service coaching, educational, and consulting business.
Now? I teach women just like you how what you eat = how you show up in life, so you can make everyday life simple, easy and healthy, in all the ways that matter.
Cozy on up for a matcha + almond milk latte (or maybe a clean margarita) and let’s get you on the journey to your happiest and healthiest life.
Sarah is also the author of two bestselling cookbooks (The Simply Real Health Cookbook: Everyday Recipes For A Healthy Life Made Simple (2015), and Simply Real Eating: Recipes and Rituals for a Healthy Life Made Simple (2019. and been a featured as an expert in Huffington Post, Cooking Light, MindBodyGreen, Well + Good, Camille Styles, Refinery 29, and more.
Join the movement towards a more intentional life.
The Simply Real Health way:
The path to discerning what you or your body needs? Getting still enough to LISTEN.
What if it were easy?
That’s the question I ask myself—and my clients, and my students—over and over again.
Because getting out of your own way is half the problem to getting started: we overcomplicate things 99% of the time due of the way we’ve been programmed to think about food.
It’s time to unlearn what you’ve learned about food, so we can rebuild it into a stronger, stable, sustainable way. From my cookbooks to my take-and-try printable meal plans to my courses and coaching, you’ll see you can allow and trust your instincts, intuition, and gut lead—you just need to simplify your food first to make more space and clarity enough to hear what they’re trying to tell you.
Work with Me:
Step away from the quick fixes, the fad diets and the trends that simply don’t work (and are making things worse in the long haul).
The tough love you just may need to hear today? It’s that there IS NO quick fix. The real and lasting solution requires going another layer deeper: learning to tune IN in to your own body vs tuning out/operating being on autopilot.
Which, TBH is a little more fun anyway.
