Private Nutrition Consulting

For as long as you can remember, you’ve been on a mission to feel beautiful, alive, healthy, and vibrant in your skin.

 You’ve craved freedom from weight worries—thinking the number on the scale or the number inside your jeans is a metric for your beauty.

 You’ve wished for clarity about what to eat to truly be well for life—instead of feeling like you seesaw between trends and theories.

 You’ve wanted to feel at complete ease in your body—no longer burdened by anxiety, stress, or symptoms that steal your energy and happiness.

 While you’ve tried to figure it out alone—and researched on Google for hours, read all of the nutrition books, and been to a variety of specialists to get a proper handle on what you can do better—nothing has worked.

 Nothing has empowered you to sustain that healed feeling, that eating plan, that lifestyle you so wish you could fully embrace.

 Life, the many roles you play, and the responsibilities you carry have kept you in this space of stuck-ness. Caught between where you are and where you want to be. How you feel in your body right now and how you want to feel.

 You know you need to do things differently. And more importantly to find a guide who has the in-depth expertise, the personal experience, and the heart to be as devoted to your goals as you are.

• Someone who won’t let you give up. 
• Someone who will help you find a way no matter how busy your schedule is. 
• Someone who knows how to help you not only take the stress out of wellness, but to help you truly be it.

It’s Time to Get That Healthy Sparkle Back!

Hey there! I’m Mary Ellen Valverde, plant-based Nutrition Specialist & Mindset Coach.

I specialize in helping women with big hearts and bursting-at-the-seams schedules detoxify from years of perpetual stress, find their rhythm with vegan living, and start healing their bodies.

By uniting my passion for plants and mindfulness with my Master’s in Functional Nutrition, I offer a completely holistic and science-based approach to designing your healthiest life.

And right here, right now, I’m officially in your corner.

I always look forward to my sessions with Mary Ellen. She has helped me understand that wellness is not just about food - a change in lifestyle is what matters. Before working with Mary Ellen, I wasn't enjoying food because of constant hunger and energy crashes.

Mary Ellen has helped me get over the calorie counting, cut down on processed food, and eat more home-cooked meals (thanks to her recipes). The biggest change I’ve seen is having energy throughout the day. My family has even commented that I am more vibrant! I have been implementing all the things she suggested and am now feeling great.

How I Design Wellness for Your Unique Needs & Goals

Here’s what I’ve discovered after healing from chronic issues after two decades AND studying with the very best in the realm of functional nutrition:

 True wellness requires us to not only unburden the body, but to also unburden the mind. Because how we think impacts how we treat our most precious commodity: the skin we live in.

 Trying to simply address food choices is only one piece of the puzzle. We also have to take a look at all of who you are—so that we can make sustainable, lifelong changes that result in elevated well being.

 That’s why my methodology integrates the detoxification of body and mind leveraging the power of plants AND the power of stress relief.

 This dynamic duo is what will empower you to finally get that healthy sparkle back—where you finally feel the way you want to feel and look the way you want to look.

How Do we Get You There?

The Total Wellness Blueprint is a full 6-week experience designed to identify what stands in the way of your highest state of wellbeing, integrate a true plant-based lifestyle into your daily routine, and begin the powerful process of unburdening both the body and mind.

Unburdening the Body—leveraging the power of proper detoxification through diet and supplementation.

Unburdening the Mind—leveraging the power of stress relieving techniques to quiet frenzied energy and reinstate calm.

The Wellness blueprint Experience

We will work together over the course of 6 weeks to help get you get clear on your wellness goals as well as the steps you need to take to achieve them.

In our initial 90-minute call, we'll deep dive into your habits, health history, nutrition analysis, and goals. After the call I'll send you a personalized nutrition & lifestyle plan based on our conversations as well as any recommendations for other testing that would be appropriate (I can run functional testing such as micro-nutrient and hormone testing).

We will have five 30-minute weekly check-ins starting consecutively after our first session. In between sessions, you will receive support from me via Voxer (please see below for details).  Throughout our time together, I will support you and keep you accountable in all aspects of wellness: a plant-based diet, the right kind of movement for your unique body, creating healthy yet tasty meals (even when short on time), balancing hormones naturally, fitting self-care into your busy lifestyle, and detoxing both the body & mind for complete wellness. 

*PLEASE NOTE: Voxer support is for 6 weeks between 10:00 am EST - 6:00 pm EST (Monday-Friday) with 3-hour message return policy. If a Voxer message is lengthy, numerous or too complex in nature this will warrant a phone call/in-person session and client will be asked to schedule/book a session. Messages received outside these hours will be returned during this next time window.

• You know that personalized guidance and accountability is what you need to truly heal and make a vegan lifestyle your default mode

• You’re in search of an integrative approach that will take every element of your health and your life into consideration

the Wellness Jumpstart

Are you confused about what to eat on a plant-based diet and need someone to give you that jump start?

In our one 60-minute session, we will discuss a few of your wellness goals and what's preventing you from achieving those. We'll figure out 1-2 action steps to get you started on your healthy path. I will follow up with a simple nutrition plan as well as any resources we covered so you'll be off to a strong start.

PLEASE NOTE: For the Wellness JumpStart, we will not be deep diving into your personal health issues so the recommendations I offer will be more generalized. 

• You want an expert to listen to the issues you are experiencing and help get you started with a few general tips

• You don't need support during your wellness journey

• You only need a general plan, nothing too personalized



The Total Wellness Blueprint is Right for You If… 

See if we're a good fit!

Mary Ellen really listens to her clients. I would explain areas I’d like to make changes to or improvement on and she tailors plans to fit your needs. It is very personal to Mary Ellen because she actually cares about your well being and success. She never makes you feel like a failure when you backslide to old unhealthy patterns. Instead, she helps you connect the dots as to why you might have certain cravings and offers healthy alternatives that might fill the need.

Mary Ellen also does an awesome job of explaining in real terms why certain foods make you feel the way you do or what affect they may have on your body. So many times she will explain a concept to me and a light bulb will go off - "that makes so much sense!!"

Whenever I had a question, I could send Mary Ellen a message and she would respond right away with solutions + provide encouragement.

You will literally have an amazing nutritionist at your fingertips!

FAQ

Do you take insurance?

Insurance is not accepted for this personalized approach to nutrition - but consider this an investment in your health. The money you contribute in this way creates a healthier (and happier) life for yourself...plus you'll set yourself up for less medical bills in the future! 


How do your programs work?

My mission is to help you feel better -  whether that's having more energy, losing weight, reducing cravings, or adopting a healthy plant-based diet.

Functional nutrition takes your whole self into account. While diet is a huge part of health, it’s not just about what you’re eating - sleep, stress levels, exercise, mood, and mindset are all connected. 

In our sessions we'll go over all of the above as well as your health history and any recent lab work to get a full picture of your health and set attainable goals.


What's your approach?

I work WITH my clients to transform their life through plant-based nutrition, healthy yet tasty recipes, and shifting their mindset around food... all while making things easier and sustainable.

We'll replace habits that are no longer serving you with more attainable, personalized routines. I will help educate you on WHY we're doing things because knowing more about the reasons behind our actions is huge in creating lasting changes. 

You won't be going at this alone. I will support you every step of the way to keep you on track and life you up when you need extra encouragement. 

This unique approach provides meaningful, lasting results for lifelong wellness.
