Most people want to elevate their nutrition, but don’t know where to start. My guest this week is my good friend Jennie Waegelein, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist who specializes in functional medicine. Jennie and I discuss our shared belief to just keep it simple! Health, Movement, Patterns, Simplified choices and why it’s important to know your numbers.
Jennie is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist who specializes in functional medicine. She received her Master’s in Nutrition from Pace University and received training through the Institute of Functional Medicine to round out her integrative approach to health. She believes in a food-first philosophy and trusts that health should be fun, never stressful. She believes in creating small shifts daily to achieve optimal health and wellness. As a Certified Yoga Teacher, she focuses not only on food and nutrition, but the power of the mind-body connection as it relates to health.
