“Hyperpalatable.” Have you heard this word before? It’s somewhat new to our modern day vernacular, used to describe all sorts of super sweet, salty, and fatty foods engineered to deliver a wallop of flavor that far surpasses the flavor available in natural foods (fruit, veggies, grains, etc.). Hyperpalatable foods are addictive and keep us reaching […]
March Madness is here. No, I’m not talking about the NCAA tournament; I’m talking about cabin fever, the deep longing for spring, the burning desire to feel the sun’s warmth as we enjoy long walks outside without fear of slipping on the ice and breaking a bone. Mother Nature dealt Minnesota and much of the […]
There’s simply no excuse for a boring salad. Today I’m sharing a winner of a salad recipe I’ve personally tested with three different groups on three different occasions with overwhelming success each time. It’s an inventive crowd-pleaser, and I suggest you tuck it into your back pocket so you’re armed and ready the next […]
I changed my life dramatically when I began batch cooking. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this term, “batch cooking” is the practice of spending a few hours one to two times a week prepping, cooking, and properly storing food so you have ready-to-go healthful meals at your fingertips. This is a practice […]
My hubby reads our local paper’s Health + Science section religiously and often finds nutrition articles he wants my take on. When he handed me this one, Keeping Calories on the Clock, which discusses the impact our circadian rhythms have on metabolism, he didn’t merely suggest I read it – he insisted. Good call, Honey. […]
“All our life, so far as it has definite form, is but a mass of habits,” William James wrote in 1892. My husband thinks I’m obsessed with self-development. I think the word “obsessed” is a bit strong, but I’ll admit I’m fascinated with all things related to human behavior: why we do the things we […]
The holidays are barely in our rear view mirror, which means it’s that dicey time of year again when many of us are on the verge of feeling or getting run-down. It’s often just after the holidays that our bodies wilt, finally succumbing to the stress and fatigue brought about by celebration after celebration. Late […]
When I made the decision to go to nutrition school, I was embarking on a natural next step in what had been a growing area of interest and passion since my teenage years. I had been reading the likes of Dr. Andrew Weil and Dr. Christiane Northrup since I was 16 and already fully embraced […]
I’m not exaggerating when I say that soups and stews are my favorite things to cook AND my favorite things to eat. This recipe for Red Lentil and Sweet Potato Stew is a great example why – it’s surprisingly simple but still richly flavorful and satisfying. With its warming spices and fresh ginger, this stew […]

The coaching, knowledge, understanding, compassion, explanations, teaching, and guidance were priceless. In fact, I am unable to put a price on what Claudine has done for me.
If you have lost hundreds of pounds in your life and yet those pounds have once again found you, and you are wondering where to turn, I highly recommend Wellness with Claudine. This is one of the best steps I have ever taken for my own health and wellbeing.
Claudine is a fabulous person to work with! She's well-educated and able to help people based on their individual needs, goals, and health concerns. A warm and inviting individual, I do not hesitate to recommend her to my clients. Claudine keeps everything fresh and exciting - literally!
Claudine is the real deal. She will teach you, comfort you, and inspire you. Do not miss an opportunity to work with her.
Claudine cares as much about my health and well-being as I do (perhaps even more so on the days where I struggle to take care of myself) which makes a huge difference... For the first time in my life I feel confident with how, what, and when to eat to maintain my body’s best, most natural rhythm.
...(working with Claudine) I have lost inches and pounds, and more importantly, I feel and look fit. I have also noticed significant improvements in my emotional and mental energy. I have a sense of well-being and confidence and know that I am now well-armed with plenty of tools to take care of myself.
I met Claudine and my life changed forever.
Claudine not only has a compassionate nature and good heart, but she provides amazing insights and suggestions. She embodies not just the attribute of a good coach (someone who listens well and provides steps for transformation), but she also has counseling skills (the ability to see deeper into a person and provide meaningful insights).

Claudine is warm, non-judgmental, extraordinarily knowledgeable, insightful, down-to-earth and REAL!
Prior to working with Claudine, I was tired, experiencing only periods of 'feeling normal.' Since working with Claudine I now consistently feel energized and more alert, and I am no longer worried about my weight. I know that I can eat well and feel satisfied without overeating.
Claudine helped me achieve a level of health that neither I nor my doctors had ever thought possible. I am truly grateful to her, and, I want you to know that no matter what led you to Claudine, be it desperation (like me) or curiosity, working with her will be the best thing you’ve ever done for yourself.
Claudine has helped me feel empowered and able to continue to make the choices and changes in my diet and lifestyle to manifest the level of health I desire. I recommend Claudine to all my friends and to you - she is life changing!!
