My name is Bridge and I am food obsessed. I have a background in natural foods, midwifery training, and counseling. Currently, I work as a professional feminist in Portland Oregon. (for real). All of the passions that I have held over years come together to being you FoodVentures! Stay tuned as I grow this fledgling vision to include thoughts on nutrition and intuitive eating, and more. My perspective is unique in that in addition to my bent for nutrition (organized around prevention of the major diseases), I am a strong supporter of the Health at Every Size movement and intuitive eating. I am currently studying with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and am working toward launching my next life as a Health and Wellness Coach. I recognize chronic dieting as unhealthy and problematic and will be helping my clients learn to find the meeting place between good nutrition and learning to listen to your own body. Food really does matter–it impacts our social structures, our rituals and relationships. It also makes a huge difference in how we feel and the quality of our lives. We can learn to take care of ourselves without handing our power over to the haters. I will let you know when I am accepting clients.
