Bigger Than Sport

Bigger Than Sport

Proper fuel isn’t just about athletic performance; it’s an investment in your child’s future.

In the last two articles I wrote with HERO, #ConcessionRevolt and Sacrificing Performance, we:

  • discussed how unhealthy food choices may sabotage the effort you and your athlete put into his or her sport;
  • gave you some actionable tips for improving your organization’s concession stand; and
  • suggested that you and your athlete take a look at how the L.A. Lakers are prioritizing nutrition in their programming.

In Bigger Than Sport, we explored the broader problem how unhealthy food choices affect your athlete in other areas of his or her life.

“When you choose nourishing food, you are investing in your child’s future.” – Holly Morello

My role is to provide nutritional writing and advice to Team Hero. I’m actually more excited about how nutrition plays a role off the mat/field or out of the gym. What can transpire for you child in every area of their life plays a big role in what “light’s me up!” – as Diane Sanfilippo often asks her fans (What lights you up?) and then she says….”Do that!” I’m doing what “light’s me up” – sharing the word about how real whole food plays a significant difference in every aspect of your child’s life. My links to purchase Herofuel are to Amazon where I have an affiliate account. I get a very small affiliate income from Amazon, which helps support my work. Additionally, when participants that sign up for The 21-Day Sugar Detox via my affiliate link, I earn a small commission. I only promote what I truly believe in.

About the Author:

I am a Portland, Oregon based Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, writer, wife, & mom of 3 amazing spirited sons. My passion is to inspire hope and to help you and/or your loved ones overcome mental, emotional & behavioral challenges such as anxiety, ADD/ADHD, Asperger’s, and depression – as well as neurological dysfunctions such as sensory processing disorder and the associated health conditions that come with these challenges. In collaboration with your medical team, I support these issues through therapeutic diet and lifestyle programs so that you and your family can live purposeful, happy lives. I work with individuals and families both in-person and remotely, conduct group 21-Day Sugar Detox Classes (because getting control of sugar should be foundational to any healing protocol), and am available for media interviews and content contribution. Lastly, I've been a wrestling mom for 10 years now and have worked tirelessly, mastering an optimal performance and weight management plan for high school athletes. I’m happy to speak to groups and organizations who are interested in the topics I am most passionate about.
