“Feeling lost and don’t know what to eat?”“Are you feeling overwhelmed, confused, and frustrated with all this information from
the internet?”

Hi, I’m Michele,

A registered dietitian and the founder of Food Frame of Mind. 

I created this website at first to help work with people who suffer with endless issues. I tried to help simplify the nutritional needs for individuals with various problems such as various issues from hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, chronic kidney disease, weight issues, bariatric to eating disorders by providing nutrition counseling and education with realistic lifestyle changes. Most of the time, people I counseled feels lost of what to eat and use “Dr. Google.” There are overwhelming wealth of information on the internet that you end up not knowing what to eat or feeling frustrated. I realized from all this is that the bottom line is everyone needs simplicity. Most people will make a 360 degree change in their eating habits, give up, be frustrated, and go back into a vicious cycle. Everyone regardless of what they have want solutions for bigger results as a quick fix. It does not necessarily work this way.

I am passionate about empowering people to strive for small changes in their eating habits. I always try to answer this question: “How do we make small changes in our eating habits towards a bigger change for a better healthier lifestyle?.” Honestly, I love to eat like most people, but I also have health issues like everyone else. With a hectic lifestyle, I am always looking to make small changes in my eating habits. One small change can make a huge difference.  My unique approach is to help find deliciously doable food choices and using mindfulness to help eat in moderation where you can still enjoy food.
