A SIMPLE HELLO...
I’ve been eating a vegetarian diet since I was a teenager, but it hasn’t always been chia seeds and rainbow chard dreams. It wasn’t until I was well into adulthood that I learned first hand how eating cleaner and more whole foods can truly change the trajectory of your health.
As a busy, time-stretched mom, trying to balance a healthy lifestyle while working a fast-paced, corporate position, life was a juggling act for sure. My life was consumed with crazy stress levels, health issues and weight struggles... and I knew a change was necessary. Knowing that good nutrition is the basis for a healthy lifestyle - my trajectory started there. I began to eat as clean and ethically as possible. I gained clarity, got my health in check, hiked daily, lost a bunch of weight and felt amazing. The benefits of eating more plants are abundant - your body becomes healthier and more at peace, and your mind becomes more positive. Plants. Peace. Positivity.
Good Mood Food was created simply out of a desire to evoke purposeful, positive changes in peoples lives through a plant-forward approach to eating and overall wellness. We wanted to create a business that was of purpose and aligned our beliefs with our actions. We are certified in plant-based cooking and are creative, culinary dreamers. We help you by taking the planning, shopping and prepping off your plate, so to speak. We will work with you to give you the tools to save you time and elevate your taste buds so you can become a bad ass in the kitchen by making delicious, healthy, nutrient dense meals.
hi, it's allison!
Co-Founder, Good Mood Food
Certified Health Coach
In 2014 while on a business trip, I woke up from a dream of what I wanted my life to look like. Spoiler alert; it wasn’t the life I was living. So in that moment, I decided to create it; one where I could be authentic, present and healthy! After 20 years of climbing the corporate ladder and at my most unhealthy, I resigned as Senior Sales Director of an industry leading company and enrolled at The Institute of Integrative Nutrition. Some people called me crazy, I called it the first step to living my best life.
I graduated in 2015 as a Certified Health Coach, determined to make a positive difference in other people’s lives. However, I quickly realized I had to make many changes to my own life first. Along the way, I was challenged with uterine cancer, type 2 diabetes & high-cholesterol. My ever-present anxiety, depression & decades of buying into a “diet mentality” also needed some serious attention & healing. Today, I’m cancer-free & 50lbs lighter. My diabetes is in remission & I reduced my cholesterol to a healthy range by gradually transitioning to a whole-food, plant-based diet & finding exercise I loved instead of dreaded. Excited by my personal results & wanting to know more, I became certified in plant-based cooking & am currently working toward my NBHWC. (National Board of Health & Wellness Coaching Certification).
I’ve helped hundreds of women challenged by lifestyle disease or just life; lose weight, upgrade their mindset and create healthy, lasting behaviors! Co-Founding Good Mood Food is an incredible opportunity to continue inspiring people to add more plants, peace & positive vibes into their life at a time when our world needs it most!
