Flourish

How can I create consistency in my nutrition and health habits? How can I stop spending all of my time and energy worrying about what I eat? How can I be kinder to my body, improve my self-talk, and feel more confident? Join Claire Siegel, host of The Flourish Podcast, as she answers all of these questions and more. You’ll gain insight into the practical tips, nutrition science, and mindset shifts so you can begin to define nutritional freedom for yourself. Each week, you’ll get a new episode that'll help you get healthy for good. Claire is a registered dietitian who’s all about balancing her whole food, veggie-heavy approach to nutrition with her love of burgers, dark chocolate, and red wine. But she wasn’t always this way… Claire spent over a decade of her life on diets. She counted calories, tracked macros, and logged Points. She’d do just about anything to lose weight. On what would turn out to be her last diet, she reached her goal weight but was less healthy and more insecure than ever. What came next was an evolution. She unlearned what dieting had taught her, and relearned how to trust her body and honor her health from a place of self-care, not self-loathing. This had a positive ripple effect on her entire life-- her friendships, her career, and her dating life. In 2018, Claire founded Flourish, a company on a mission to help women get healthy for good.

According to its creators, Intuitive Eating is a "self-care eating framework, which integrates instinct, emotion, and rational thought." It was developed back in 1995 by two dietitians, Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch, and is detailed in their book, Intuitive Eating: A Revolutionary Anti-Diet Approach, which outlines the 10 guiding principles of the practice.

While Intuitive Eating has gained a ton of traction over the years,...

Girl, stop should-ing all over yourself...

When Claire first heard this catchy phrase, it really resonated with her.

Except...what about those "shoulds" that come from your own internal wisdom?

When living in alignment with your values and pursuing a flourishing life, these types of "shoulds" are inevitably going to c...

Meal prepping is one of the most common New Year's Resolutions we see clients strive for. But while the intentions behind meal prep may be positive, it is not a second nature habit. Meal prep might feel overwhelming, too time consuming, or you may just get sick of eating the same boring meal everyday.

At Nutritional Freedom, we believe in the power of meal prep. We believe it can help nourish one's body in a way that serves...

Studies show that 80% (yes...you read that correctly) of New Year's Resolutions fail. Why is this? We know that resolutions are set with good intentions and that we don't set out planning to leave our goals behind. 

Just because New Years Resolutions haven’t worked before doesn’t mean we have to give up on setting goals entirely. It just means we need to approach them in a different way. Whether you're crafting your 2021...

Ah, food guilt... the TOTALLY unnecessary, unhelpful negative emotion that plagues so many of us. Maybe you ate something that isn't perfectly "clean" or had more food than your friend and then you feel guilty about it. Food guilt manifests and affects all of us differently.
