Nutritionist spotlight: Natalie 


Natalie gained her expertise at the University of North Florida. Her goal is to teach others that good nutrition doesn’t have to be complicated. She’s especially passionate about intuitive eating. I had the chance to sit down and get to know her a bit better.  

How did you get into nutrition? 

I wanted to learn how to better my own health and encourage others to as well! I love that nutrition isn’t a one-size-fits-all formula. Everyone’s needs and goals are different.  

What’s your biggest nutrition pet peeve? 

My biggest pet peeve is placing morality on food. Food isn’t good or bad and eating something that’s seen as unhealthy doesn’t make you bad! You can enjoy all foods in moderation, even your favorite treats and desserts.  

What advice would you give someone who’s struggling to make healthy changes? 

Remember: There are no quick fixes when it comes to your health! Making changes to your diet is all about balance. You should think of it as a lifestyle shift that takes time. So focus on small steps and achievable goals. Once you reach one goal, make another! 

What’s your favorite supplement? 

My favorite supplement is CBD. I like that it helps calm my nerves and even helps with sleep.* 

What’s your favorite snack and why? 

A favorite snack of mine is peanut butter with apple slices! Not only is it delicious and sweet (I have a major sweet tooth 😊!), but both foods are full of nutrients like fiber. And peanut butter has protein and healthy fats to help keep you feeling full for longer. 

What does your average weekend look like? 

My fiancée and I travel nearly every weekend to nearby cities, where we walk around, try new restaurants and explore museums. We also like to visit our families, who live about 3 hours away.  

When we do stay home, we like to get take-out from a favorite restaurant, catch up on cleaning, watch movies and go on hikes when it’s warm outside. 

Tell us something surprising about yourself. 

I have 6 siblings. And I actually started out as a nursing major before I switched to nutrition!
