Hey! I’m Brianne (aka Bri - pronounced Bree)
I used to be totally unhealthy and unhappy, but the worst part was...I didn't know why!
I've struggled with depression, anxiety, migraine headaches, brain fog, low energy, poor self esteem, sugar cravings, cramps during PMS and hair loss. I've improved EVERY symptom by eliminating and reducing toxins! I feel empowered and in control of my body! It's an amazing feeling!! I hope to inspire and empower you! You are truly the only person who has control over your health! I'm a work in progress and together we'll make positive changes!
A little bit about me...I'm a mom to a spunky, smart and beautiful little girl. My husband and I have been together for 12 years! We've helped each other grow in so many areas of life! We used to live the traditional western lifestyle (poor diet, little to no exercise, and poor health). We push each other to try new things and our lifestyle is unrecognizable from just a couple years ago! I've been a Registered Nurse since 2009. However, my passion is learning about all things natural! I love knowing how our lifestyles affect us, both positively and negatively. I don't fall into any specific diet category (ie. paleo, vegan, vegetarian, etc). If I had to label my diet, I'd say I'm a flexitarian. I'm flexible, I listen to my body and give it what it needs.
I've often felt like I was born in the wrong generation, which is how I came up with my website name (and some of my friends were already referring to me as a hippie dippie mom). I love classic rock, wearing jeans with holes and pretty much anything that I find comfortable. I feel like Hippie's had a lot of things right....use Mother Nature to our benefit, feel free, be yourself, and listen to your body!
When I’m not researching, writing, or teaching I can be found doing any number of activities (ie crafts, playing at the park, or making voices for dolls) with my daughter. I’m also a novice at sewing and love making different DIY things for myself and family….sugar scrub anyone?!
I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I studied a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods.
