Read on to hear about how Jess' tips for staying positive, her morning routine and how she plans to challenge herself in the next year!

Can you tell us about yourself - what you do, a bit about your story, etc.?

You can call me Jess :) I'm a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with a Masters in Nutrition Therapy, specializing in women's hormone health, blood sugar balance. I’m the founder of my brand, Nourished By Nutrition, which is a resource for helping women optimize their wellness through every season of life -- without obsession or perfection. My passion for this area of wellness stemmed from my own journey with nutrition and wellness. I’ve struggled with disorder eating, striving for perfection, hormone imbalance and gut issues. My journey and healing has helped me realize how much other women are also struggling. In a wellness crazed society, it’s easy to want a quick fix or to compare your journey to others, but I help women get back to the foundational habits and focus on their own journey so they can optimize their wellness and heal. I'm also a wife and mom of two boys (ages 4 and 1) who keep me busy and my house like a tornado ran thorough it. We also have two furry Poms, Stella and Alvin.

What’s your best tip on how to stay positive?

I've learned that this is a daily practice. Journaling or at the very least, listing out 3 things I'm grateful for daily allows me to shift my perspective even if I'm starting to spiral. A huge mindset shift for me has been looking for the glimmers around me, even when things aren't going as planned or when I'm in a funk. This helps bring positivity to the moment and helps me remember the blessings that I have no matter the circumstance.

How do you consider yourself a “game changer?”

By bringing my unique experiences and education to be a resource for attainable wellness for women. Whether it's though recipes, tips or other resources I share, or just as a listening ear or trusted friend.

What’s the best thing you do for your personal health everyday (mental or physical or both!) that allows you to be the best version of yourself?

My early mornings to myself and acts of self-care sprinkled throughout the day help me show up as the best version of myself. I typically wake up between 4-5am without an alarm. This is my "me time" until the kids wake up around 7am. I journal, or read, sip my coffee with breakfast uninterrupted and move my body based on how I'm feeling that day. I also work a little during this time or use it to get organized for the day. Ever since having kids I've realized that there isn't a "perfect" time to set aside to prioritize wellness but rather is has to be added where it can (and this can look different daily). I'm more flexible with how I include the daily practices but I make an effort to do something for myself throughout the day. This often looks like gua sha and dry brushing after my shower, making a tea after putting the kids down for a nap and taking a moment to pause and breathe, breathwork or meditation before even getting out of bed.

How are you planning to challenge yourself in the next year?

I'm actually challenging myself to take on less and dedicate more so that I can focus on what really lights me up in my business. Right now I wear all the hats and often feel spread too thin trying to balancing it all while being on 100% of the time as a mom. By letting go of controlling everything, I'm hoping to gain more time in the present and show up more fully doing what I'm good at.

How does Chomps fuel your lifestyle?

In the last 4 years, I've really changed the way I've eaten and have only experienced benefits. Going from vegan, to mostly plants, to now a high protein animal and plant-based diet. I'm realized the importance of protein and blood sugar balance for my energy levels and hormone health. This is where Chomps comes in. Having a convenient, high quality protein source at my finger tips has been a game-changer for me whether I'm taking them on the go, giving them to my kids or making a snack plate to fuel my afternoons.
