Choosing what to eat can bring on a whole bunch of emotions. These emotions all stem from two places; whether your food choices come from empowerment or fear.

Introduction to Food Freedom


kelly lyons

ceo, health coach, head honcho, mama

Hi friend and welcome! I hope you love a taste of sarcasm, real talk, and someone who is going to tell you pretty much the exact opposite of what diet culture has ingrained in your (read: everyones) brains.

I’m a health coach whose view of health is not being obsessed with food, enjoying exercise again, and changing the thoughts happening between your ears. If you’re looking for macros, a meal plan, or someone who’s going to monitor your weight, you’ve got the wrong girl. But if you’ve come this far, I’m pretty sure you knew that already.

But I promise you… going about health in a normal, mindful, stress-free way will change your life. For good.
