Hey, I'm Tara!
A corporate mom turned Certified Health & Nutrition Coach.
Educator and blogger. Whole living expert. Firm advocate of making HEALTHIER, EASIER for you.
What makes me jump out of bed? To help MOMS like you take control of your health and your life by teaching you the exact how-to’s to achieve a healthy body that you’re confident of, and a lifestyle that you love (even when it seems impossible).
I’m also wildly passionate about helping women build a soulful, rewarding business to create the freedom and abundance that they aspire, and fulfill their biggest dreams in life.
I wanted to write this piece to share a bit about my journey on how my passion for holistic health started and when being a full-time mom slash part-time goal-digger began. My philosophy is greatly centered around transforming one’s health which ultimately intertwines with every other aspect in our life – relationships, spirituality, career, finances, and yes…motherhood.
If you’re looking for an instant health make-over, a crash diet, or a lose-weight-fast option, then I’m not your girl. I teach a HOLISTIC, HEALTHY LIFESTYLE PLAN that works. No fluffy stuff. No shortcuts.
I’m not here to preach, but instead to guide you to make better food and lifestyle choices. From creating easy, healthy, delicious meals to finding balance between being a mom and a career woman, and learning to look after yourself much better… that’s what I’m here to help you with.
You already know what you are supposed to do. I’m just here to remind you to do those. CONSISTENTLY. And with gumption!
And do I love what I do?
So how did it all start?
You see, I wasn’t a health junkie or a business-savvy gal to begin with. I worked in the corporate world for more than 12 years as a senior manager on learning and leadership development. I loved my profession, but what I didn’t love was the hours which compromised my HEALTH, and took a lot of personal TIME away from me. I traveled quite a lot in my job and I felt exhausted and burnt out most of the time.
ENTER MOTHERHOOD into the picture.
Being a mom was a total game changer for me. And a few months after my son was born I realized that things can never be the same as they were. I can never travel for business trips for too long without missing my son terribly. And I really felt I have to get my vitality back to keep up with my growing hyperactive child! Relate much mommas??
I then met incredible people who made me realize that health + wellness was a “thing” that I wanted to do. I did my research and listened to people who actually made it happen. People who get paid (like really well) for what they love to do, travel the world and own their time, and who are still incredibly healthy.
I made a LEAP OF FAITH. I started my first online wellness business even with zero knowledge how to do it. I decided that I can never be ready and there’s never a perfect time. And the rest as they say, is history.
Fortunately, the wellness space suited me. Everything just felt right to me and I felt aligned with it in every aspect. I have never felt more passionate than learning about the world of nutrition. Noticing the changes on how I felt and looked just by making a few tweaks from what I eat, and even on what I put on my skin made me even realize how simple and basic it actually is to live a healthier life.
Yes, I felt I was at my healthiest, thriving state… BUT over and over, I had encounters with a lot of moms who struggle with dealing with the daily juggle and who badly want to turn their health around but just didn’t know how.
It became my mission to change that. And FIT FOODIE MOMMY was born.
The story didn’t end there.
I then left my corporate job when my family moved to Australia and I decided to also become a full-time, play-and-work-at-home mom, raising a toddler while also building my tribe of wellness advocates from all across the world.
It was the most liberating decision ever. Scary, but liberating.
I found myself hungry not just for healthy food but also for a life-long education. Getting certified as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach by the Institute of Integrative Nutrition was a major turning point for me. I knew then that this was what I was meant to do. This ain’t just a hobby. This is my religion. My life.
Now after years of coaching so many women be it about eating better, or managing stress, or simply taking the ‘crazy’ out of the daily #momlife, or launching their own wellness business (coz entrepreneurship is the next thing I’m also passionate about), I can honestly say that had I not turned to focusing first on my HEALTH, I would still be that burnt out, exhausted, uninspired mom a few years ago.
When you truly have good health,
you can have good "everything".
And I want for you to have that too.
And this loving space is my way of paying it forward. Of giving it all back to the universe and serving YOU.
Sitting there, wondering if you can ever have the best of both worlds – optimum health, true wealth and time spent on what truly matters.
“But I don’t have a clue where to start”, you might think in that pretty little head of yours.
That’s why I am here, my dear. And together, we will figure it out. One step at a time.
And when you do figure it all out, trust me when I say, it’s going to be nothing short of EPIC.
