Hey there! I’m Jena - a food-loving, no calorie counting dietitian with Type II Diabetes, hormonal changes, and high cholesterol. I am on a mission to help others be the healthiest they can be by providing nutritional counseling, guidance with helping you become more at peace with food, body acceptance, cooking classes, and recipe ideas. And referrals to great practitioners for hormonal changes- I’ve discovered you’re never too young to have these changes! What you’ll find here is lots of information about who I am, what I do, and why I do it. Maybe you’re here because you need to make some lifestyle changes, but don’t know where to start. Maybe you’re here because you, too, are struggling with Type II Diabetes or a higher-than-you’d-like cholesterol and need some help, ideas or motivation.
What I do is meet you where you are and walk with you on a journey of healthy living. No two people are the same. No two paths are the same. But we all want to live with joy and strength so that we can be with the people we love and do the things we are passionate about. So I’m here to help you do just that! Want to know what kind of services I offer, what my rates are and how you can start this journey to a healthier lifestyle?
I am Jena Bodeker. I’m a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN), gardener, home cook, wife, and mom to two sweet boys. I am all about family and the power that food has to bring people together around a table. I love to be outside, whether in my garden picking up weeds that my husband has pulled, walking around my neighborhood, or exploring nature by going on a hike with my family. This is me. I’d love to meet you!
Here you’ll find my thoughts, opinions, and maybe even some myth-busting about what’s going on with food, eating and a holistic approach to healthy living. I’m not the food police, more like a handy-dandy guide! Whether you need guidance in the kitchen, grocery store, or on your plate, I’m here to help you learn how to eat the way that’s going to help you feel your best and healthiest. I’m always learning, and I want to help others do the same!
