I am Sara Bradford. And I have a secret…
I am a “registered holistic nutritionist”. And sometimes…I DO NOT believe in holistic nutrition.
There! I said it.
What? That doesn’t make sense, does it? Well…it kinda does.
You see… after all my experimenting and crazy experiences, I come from a place of knowledge. At least sort of. And what I DO know is that my expertise is in food. FOOD! Delicious, tasty, seasonal, inspiring food — and how you can digest and absorb that delicious food BETTER.
I’m not here to “cure” or “diagnose” or “fix/treat”. Only you can do that. Unless you’re really ill and maybe only a doctor can do that alongside you. If you meet a holistic nutritionist who tells you they can do any of those things, and ESPECIALLY if it involves signing up to sell oils, or take a bunch of supplements they aren’t qualified to give you, then run. RUN!!!!!!
I believe in food. Delicious food.
I believe that love (in all its forms) is about a million times more powerful than anything you put in your mouth.
I believe that cocktails can have nutrition, too. That gluten isn’t evil. That lard can be good for you. That tofu can taste good, but is often evil for some people (and why eat it when meat is actually healthier).
I rest my head at night knowing I have done everything in the food and nutrition world with total integrity. But at one point I also fell for a lot of the health industry cock-a-mania — and dove in blindly, which made me a lot more unhealthy than it should have.
Do you know what orthorexia is? Look it up. That was me.
I’m not here to convince anyone of anything. What I’m here for is to provide you with food prep, cooking, ingredient inspiration, and truth. (And maybe an awesome meal prep playlist.) Preparing food is magical. If it doesn’t feel that way to you, let’s figure out a way to make that happen.
I want you to fall in love with ingredients. I want you to fall in love with hard-working farmers who live with integrity. I want you to fall in love with yourself, because I’m slowly learning that most people don’t really love themselves all that much, and they want a magic little pill, or an entire chocolate cake, or a ridiculous raw vegan diet, or something to fill themselves up.
Only you can fill yourself up. You just maybe haven’t figured out how yet. You can. You will.
Also: Fuck you supplement companies and protein powder companies and “superfood” companies and fad gyms. Shame on you for ripping people off.
Also also: Real food is medicine. So is chilling the hell out. So is falling in love. So is leaving a shitty marriage. So is having children (sometimes). So is an amazing cup of coffee. So is a daily walk in the fresh air. So is a really good poop. So is really delicious fresh water.
So is balance. Period.
I’ve taken a leap and I’m doing some brave new things… because life is for living. And it’s too darn short. So…
I’m creating content. A lot of it.
That’s right. I’m switching gears ENTIRELY and making a full swing over to the world of food content creation.
That means that I want to make your social media accounts beautiful and smart — so you have a better represented brand and, more importantly, you get more clients and customers.
And as far as the nutrition stuff goes… read more below.
If you’re a woman tired of nutrition bullshit (and don’t mind a little sailor mouth) then I’m your bullshit-free food resource. Haha.
This all started for me because:
Something about the nutrition and cleansing industry was making me crazy. I had to do something about it. It’s really hard for me to ignore unhealthy madness being created when I know better.
The nutrition industry was spewing so many “do’s” and “don’t” with no real guidance and nothing to inspire these changes. So many women were setting out with good intentions. “I’m going to change my life with this detox or fad diet. It’s going to be amazing. It’s going to fix everything.” And then they end up worse than where they started.
There are safe, smart, delicious ways to do things — and dangerous, dumb ways. Some silly “cleanse” shouldn’t leave you more depleted than when you started.
So… I created (in my humble opinion) an awesome program, which I ran seasonally for many many years, with hundreds and hundreds of people participating, and returning again and again. And now you can do it all on your own!
I, too, have sat through eating not-delicious gruel, and feeling awful all the while — and WORSE afterwards. As a food fanatic, a mom, a busy entrepreneur — I know how tough it is sometimes to find the right way to eat. It can feel impossible. I also went through my OWN health scare. And I was doing all the things I was “supposed to”. But I just got sicker. (That was a real eye opener!!) My “journey back” taught me a whoooooooole lot about this industry.
Real food tastes good — if you know what you’re doing. (Which I guess is where I come in.)
Doing any kind of food-type-program should be as fantastic as it’ll make you feel afterwards. I’ve learned from traveling and parenthood… Life is as much about the JOURNEY as it is the DESTINATION. Your food journey should be NO DIFFERENT.
The Community Dumps were special. They weren’t a cleanse. It was about a community. It was about loving yourself enough to eat yummy shit. It was that simple, really.
I couldn’t leave you hanging so I’ve created a fabulous cookbook and guide to help you create that magic when you’re on your own — and team up with others while you do…
