Annika is a Certified Nutritional Practitioner, graduate of the Balanced Bites Master Class, Certified 21 Day Sugar Detox Coach and Restart Instructor. She has been married for over 20 years and has five active children. Her oldest son graduated last year and is working full time in the family business. Annika has been homeschooling her children for 13 years. Annika says, ‘Life is busy and our days are full but she wouldn’t want it any other way’.
Annika is passionate about nurturing your body well. She believes children and adults need to be exposed to a variety of foods daily. Vividly colored fruits and vegetables; grass-fed meat, poultry, eggs, organ meats; and full fat dairy products should be filling your plates.
She understands change can be scary, and even unwelcome. She knows first hand how fierce the sugar dragon can be, how addicting caffeine can be, and how easy boxed meals are. She is not here to tell you you can’t have those things in your life. Instead, she wants you to experience first hand how freeing it can be to live life without being addicted to caffeine or sugar, and how alive and energized you can feel eating real food. At first this way of life will seem unnatural, hard, even impossible. She will challenge you to break your old habits, and intentionally seek healthier options.
Annika will walk beside you as you make changes, encourage you when things are tough and offer recipes, tips and resources to keep you on the right track. She does not believe in a perfect journey be perfect, but instead feels that through our imperfections we learn and grow. And her heart is for you to know, you are worth the effort.
Annika believes movement should be apart of your every day. She is currently working on her Personal Trainer Certification and additional Health Coaching Certificates. She looks forward to being able to help you in these areas in the near future.
Annika works with clients 1:1 in person and long distance, she also hosts group workshops several times a year. If you are interested in working with Annika you may contact her here
