I‘m Anne Marie and I'm your hostess at this wellness website, Grass Fed Salsa, where I share simple and delicious AIP & Whole30 recipes, better beauty tips, wellness strategies I'm obsessed with, and even tips on how to build your own profitable wellness business (if that sounds interesting, click on the business coaching tab!)
Oh, and also I help people detoxify their home and body with really simple swaps… 'cause, you know, it's important and stuff. I'm thrilled to get to know you, and share all the info I've gathered from my past 6 years in biz as a nutritionist and health coach.
Here's a bit of background on my own wellness journey – the catalyst of me going back to school for nutrition and starting this wellness website was all because I got sick. Actually, I had been sick for as long as I can remember.
After decades of suffering from hormonal imbalances, digestion issues, massive gut distention, I was finally diagnosed with Celiac Disease, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, insulin resistance, and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS).
After diagnosis, I saw doctors for years, each of them throwing prescription medications and bio-identical hormones at me, but I knew that wasn't the path I wanted to follow.
I didn't want to be ‘the sick person' taking meds that masked one symptom while causing another. I wanted to identify and treat the root cause.
In 2013, I FINALLY found healing… by focusing on my health holistically. Not just cleaning up my diet, but also by reducing the toxins I put on/in my body, home, and relationships.
Basically, I detoxed my life, one simple step at a time, and the change was profound. It literally changed my entire life.
So I started Grass Fed Salsa because I wanted to help people who were struggling with similar issues (irregular periods, PMS, chronic gut pain, fatigue, weight gain, irregular blood sugar, constipation, and bloating) find healing, too.
And show them ways to heal naturally: with whole foods, selective supplementation, non-toxic products, and simple lifestyle changes. I'm also a huge advocate for Whole30 and the AIP diets.
Little by little, my online wellness community grew, and 5 years after I created this space, I decided to give up one dream for another. I traded in my career as an interior designer to run Grass Fed Salsa full time in May 2019.
I can’t wait to share everything I’ve learned with you so you can find your own healing and happiness.
