Giovanna Garcia - Nutritionist & Personal Chef

Giovanna Garcia is a Nutritionist [Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Sciences - University of Arizona] and Certified Natural Chef [Bauman College]. Giovanna believes that food is the base of health and that what we eat directly affects our mood, thoughts, focus, and energy level. Giovanna provides the tools for you to use whole unrefined foods to live and sustain a healthy lifestyle. She feels that if we nourish our body with the right foods, we can prevent health issues occurring in the first place. Her goal is to educate busy individuals like you to obtain and sustain a balanced and healthy lifestyle.

Giovanna is an inspiration who lives her values and illustrates her credo that Life is a gift, and that we should live every day enjoying the things we do while respecting ourselves.  Giovanna brings an aesthetic often missing in the nutrition world. The typical notions are of a dry, boring, flavorless, humorless, plain-Jane lifestyle.  She brings a fun, tasty, beautiful presentation to the mix, which in my opinion is what the industry needs to gain mainstream popularity.  We can all eat healthier, without compromise.
