Hey, I’m Toye, a holistic wellness coach helping busy career moms build a healthy lifestyle around the foods they eat so they can have more time and energy for the things that matter most to them!
Six years ago, I was at the height of my career when I sold my luxury day spa. On the outside, I was successful, financially flexible, and created a great lifestyle as a single mom. But on the inside, I felt overworked, exhausted, and a sense of emptiness.
Daily trips to the drive-throughs to fit eating into my busy life made me feel sluggish, and even worse, my poor habits trickled down to my daughter. Poor eating was affecting my performance as an entrepreneur and a mom.
One night I found myself feeding my daughter a chili hot dog and chips for dinner while I scarfed down 4 slices of cold pizza that I was too tired to warm up. It was then I realized there needed to be a shift. Unhealthy leftovers and unbalanced meals could no longer be our story. I immediately searched for a nutrition school and was enrolled one month later.
I studied nutrition for one year and realized that my eating was directly tied to other health areas of my life. Once I shifted my eating habits, my physical, emotional, and spiritual health improved as well. My daughter started to lose weight and I began feeling a sense of fulfillment that I had never experienced.
“When you take care of yourself, everything else begins to fall in place”
Eating healthy isn’t about restricting yourself from the foods you love. It’s about discovering the deeper issue into why we constantly feed ourselves foods that harm our bodies. What makes a holistic wellness expert different than your average nutritionist is knowing that the foods you eat are tied to a larger picture. We’re not just eating for a healthier body. We’re eating for a healthier life.
