From eating disorder to healthy, happy and loved is a great way to summarize my journey to healthy living.
Years before I become a Registered Dietitian and the Healthy Grocery Girl, I struggled with my own health. Being healthy wasn’t always natural or easy for me. I struggled with disordered eating in High School and early on in College. Today, I am such a different person than who I was years ago. I have a healthy relationship with food, my body, mind and soul. However, having past health struggles and overcoming them has given me empathy and compassion for those who are struggling. It is one of the reasons why I started Healthy Grocery Girl!
With Healthy Grocery Girl our community helps people embrace healthy eating and living a healthy lifestyle. However, I understand that “healthy” can be a broad word and people are at different stages in their journey to health. In fact, many people struggle with eating disorders, whether it’s overeating, undereating, binging, obsessing over every calorie, or a combination of many unhealthy habits. Many people also struggle with respecting and being kind to their body. If this resonates with you, you are not alone. Healthy Happy Loved is a movement to provide inspiration, hope and resources.
On this page you will find resources to help those who are struggling with disordered eating.
This page is also helpful for family and friends who know someone struggling with disordered eating.
You will notice that my resources are Faith based because my Faith is what helped me heal. I understand that everyone has a different belief system and this page is not intended to offend anyone. Rather Healthy Happy Loved is meant to be a positive place for healing resources no matter what you believe, who you are, or where you live, you are welcome here!

A bit of encouragement: YOU CAN be healthy, YOU CAN be whole, YOU CAN. The journey begins within your very own heart. We all support you! Know that you are loved, that you are worthy, and that there is no one else in the world just like you. When you are living in your true health, when you are living your life to your fullest, imagine what that could look like? Perhaps there is great calling for your life to help others, to make a difference in the world? Your life matters, it’s worth fighting for, and it’s worth making the daily choice to put your health over any habits of escape or over any habits of comfort that may hurt you. Stay strong. Don’t give up. And if you stumble, be kind, and know that you can do this. Life is about progress not perfection.
