You can’t take the French out of Vanessa, and her philosophy is simple: “a little bit of everything,”. There is no perfect diet; there is no secret… it is about finding balance. Everyday, we make hundreds of decisions, yet when it comes to food, most people are not quite sure what they should have. Finding balance is about making smart, informed food choices most of the time. Vanessa will be able to help you find the harmony between what you really want and what you need. Everyone knows it is important to eat better and more nutritiously, but the hard part is putting it into practice and being inspired to get it done. Vanessa works with her clients to tailor their diets specifically to perfectly fit their lifestyle.
