As announced in a previous blog, I’ve joined the team at HERO in Portland, Oregon. A youth sports nutrition company that celebrates, inspires, and fuels young athletes. The are the crafters of an amazing, whole food based protein bar for active kids that tastes amazing too: HEROFUEL!

I’m super excited about this company and all that they stand for. I’m so proud to be part of their team and to share in their vision.

Truly healthy sources of portable fuel for competitive youth athletes are really difficult to find besides the real food that you pack and bring with you. At least as a mom and nutritionist of competitive athletes, I have found it challenging – until we found Hero at a wrestling tournament earlier this year!

As a member of Team HERO, I’m writing a series of youth sports nutrition focused blog content. This week we look at the problem of concessions stands. This is something not many people are talking about. They are support our children’s sports organizations but at what cost? You all know what is sold at concession stands!

Join the conversation over at HERO#ConcessionRevolt


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.
