Meet Mindy. Mindy is an expert in helping others become their best selves through healthier choices, education, and sustainability. She presented a great lecture on demystifying food labels to attendees of the Birmingham Girls Club conference a few years ago that turned out to be the hit of the conference. Numerous ladies contacted Mindy after to ask her expertise in everything from shopping to preparation to maximizing resources.
Mindy has been helping me for years with making better choices when it comes to food and my body. She’s part counselor, part nutrition guru, and completely legitimate. During our first meeting she asked about my current habits for shopping, eating out, dietary restrictions, and more. She delved deep into how I felt food affected me and my body, as well as what I hoped to change. Since then, with her help, my irritable bowel syndrome has calmed down enormously.
Mindy’s skills have grown tremendously in recent years and she’s revamping her client packages to encompass her added talents. She’s currently looking for feedback to maximize the effectiveness of her programs. She’s offering the first five women who email her at mjsanto3 (at) gmail (dot) com a 45-minute discovery session to help her pinpoint the most common issues affecting ladies today. Please be sure to mention this blog post so she can honor this complimentary offer. And please know this session is not to try and sell you anything – she’s reaching out to various groups to better learn how she can be the most helpful with her work. This discovery session is an informal talk that may include questions about issues you are having, what you’ve tried in the past to help with the issues, how important it is to you to feel better or be your best self, how you would benefit from an accompaniment to the grocery store to help look over labels and foods before purchasing, and so much more.
Her target audience is women who would like to create a sustainable lifestyle starting with food education – including selection, preparation, storage, and waste – and slowly spreading that knowledge throughout your life and home. Her services include food label demystification, pantry reorganization, grocery store education, reducing food waste at home, compost learning, and more. “Helping people create a sustainable lifestyle, starting with food education and transitioning to other facets of their life, is how I want to help,” says Santo.
Mindy’s own experiences led her down this path beginning five years ago. She began having recurrent severe stomach discomfort that would keep her up many nights. After doing some research, she decided to start keeping a food journal. Upon reviewing what she was (and wasn’t) putting into her body, she started to see some patterns. Numerous changes in her food lifestyle helped resolve the stomach issues completely. Soon after she fell and crushed her wrist. With her recent dietary changes, her wrist healed in record time and she attributes much of it to knowing how to properly read and respond to her body’s needs.
Let Mindy help you like she’s helped so many others, including me. Take advantage of the discovery session to give her your feedback and take the opportunity to meet a true healer. The bottom line: She wants nothing more than to help you feel your best by helping you with lifestyle choices that empower you, starting with cutting through the nutritional noise.
