Happy Friday, Cowes!
Today, we shine light on Lindsey Wolf of The Nourish Company, and our trusted nutritionist expert #ontheblog.
Give us your “quick n dirty” — tell us a bit about yourself. We want to know what you’re all about
I’m a busy AF mom with two under two, a partner-in-crime to a loving and beautiful man, a business owner and an ice cream connoisseur.
#LocalLove is all about showing love to bad-ass bosses like yourself. Can you share with us what you do for work and how you make an impact?
Owner and Founder of The Nourish Company, I’m passionate about helping busy, stressed out and overwhelmed moms achieve their health, wellness and weight loss goals by unlocking more time in their day so that they can finally focus on themselves.
How did you get into this line of work?
After struggling with my weight and disordered eating for 10 years, I finally found a system that worked for me and I was able to lose over 40lbs without slashing calories and giving up the foods that I loved. As a result, I fell in love with nutrition and the power of food and became a certified nutritionist and began coaching women on how to rebuild their relationship with food while they lose weight in a healthy, sustainable way, all the while, eating what they love.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given (career or otherwise)
“When you know better, you do better.” -Oprah
“You must understand that it’s going to take a lot of people to get you there. It takes rejection and redirection. It takes loss, battles and resiliency. It takes hurt, pain and healing. You don’t have to show up at the top. You have to work for your growth.” -Vienna Pharaon
How about the worst?
Any time someone told me not to trust my gut.
If you could paint your ideal life, what would that look like in 5-10 years from now?
Exactly how it looks today… with more wrinkles and more date nights with my husband (because we won’t have two under two and people will want to babysit)
