Getting Started


As a kid (the oldest of four), I can remember setting up a card table in our Family Room and recruiting my younger siblings to act as waiter/waitress/sous chef while we served our parents a unique dining experience. I, of course, was the head chef, overseeing everything from the kitchen. Twenty five years later, not much has changed except that I now have a few credentials behind my self-appointed role as Chief Cook and Bottle Washer! With a diploma in Nutrition as well as certification in Child Nutrition from Shaw Academy, I am a wife, mom, sister, daughter and friend who’s passionate about eating healthy on a budget!

​Over the years I’ve learned a lot about nutrition and making practical, easy, yummy, REAL food meals to meet a variety of dietary needs (Paleo, Vegetarian, Raw, gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free etc.) The Italian in me LOVES bringing people together over food and/or drinks; the entrepreneur in me can’t help connecting people with quality products that I, personally, use on a regular basis; and the mom/teacher in me enjoys incorporating kids in the process. Thus, Nutritional Foundations is the natural overflow of who I am!

My hope is that this collaborative will gain momentum and serve as an inspiration to friends, family and beyond! The folks that are a part of this endeavor are truly amazing women who inspire me on a regular basis.  Collectively, we would love to share our areas of expertise with you, our literal and virtual community. We are also committed to learning from you and one another! Always feel free to comment on posts and share your questions, thoughts, and knowledge. May this community gain momentum and thrive!
