Welcome to ‘A Healthy Slice of Life‘! I’m Brittany and this is my blog- welcome! I live just north of Charlotte, NC with my husband, David, daughter, Hailey, and have another baby girl on the way, due May 2014.
I have been fascinated by health and nutrition since I was in 6th grade and arranged the items in my mom’s pantry by fat grams per serving. Thus began my love/hate relationship with food and the diets that ensued. Then, while attending The University of Georgia, I managed to gain 25ish pounds above my healthy weight, and at 5’1”, every pound showed. After trying every diet and weight loss trick out there and yo-yoing up and down, I decided to learn the skills to get the weight off in a healthy way, and keep it off for good.
Through the years after college, I became an ACE (American Council on Exercise) certified Fitness Instructor, an ACE certified Lifestyle and Weight Management Consultant, a health coach, then a healthy living blogger. I owned and operated a metabolic testing and health coaching company until spring of 2012, when I closed it to stay at home with Hailey.
Though I miss individual health coaching, I love what I am doing now. I am a mom to Hailey and blog about navigating the challenges of healthy living as a mom. I work part time from home via this blog and for Shaklee, the number one natural nutrition company. I am passionate about and promote healthy eating, especially for children. I appear regularly on FOX News Rising to share healthy recipes for kids.
Thanks so much for visiting!
