Interview with nutrition coach Danielle Jones

Hi, guys I had an opportunity to check out Danielle Jones of Dareme_Danielle a rising nutrition coach who is taking home meal prepping to another level!!

The interview questions: I know you love health & women’s wellness, but tell me what’s your expertise?

My expertise is coaching women through the eating portion of their health journey. I work to ensure they are eating nutrient-rich food, not just what we have deemed “healthy”. I give variety & take healthy meals for dull to delicious! I offer nutritional coaching & menus to assist in their weight loss journey or help in their journey to maintain what they have already lost.

Why & how did you get started?

I got started because one day my husband & I️ will begin trying to conceive a little one. Since I am on the older side of childbearing age I wanted to make sure my body was healthy & clear of all the unhealthy things I’ve input into it. Once I begin to learn how eating can assist in preventing so many health issues that some of my family & friends have struggled with, I wanted to share the information with whoever would listen. I specialize in women because I can relate to the struggles & know about the insecurities we have. I know how important it is for us as caregivers to be healthy for ourselves & for our family!

What are 5 tips for women who are tired of the everyday meal prep?

  • 1. Season your food with herbs. A lot of people don’t think to season because they are trying to stay healthy & are laying off the sodium. Herbs are good for you & take those healthy meals for Dull to delicious!
  • 2. Make alternating meals so you don’t get bored with the same lunch every day. Monday Wednesday have the same & Tuesday Thursday have something different. Make it fun on Friday.
  • 3. Make your meals colorful. Have a least 3 colors in each meal. This makes it appetizing not only to eat but to your eyes as well. Eating colorful foods also adds more nutrients to each meal.
  • 4. Get creative. Every meal doesn’t have to have rice. Quinoa has a lot more nutrients. Kale tastes better, to some, when it’s cooked so try a cooked kale salad. Think low calorie but also think of nutrient-rich foods.
  • 5. Treat yourself. Think of your favorite unhealthy food & try to make a healthy alternative. Just because you’re eating healthy doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have what you like. Also, if you want a sweet treat, get a small piece of dark chocolate, fun or bite size. Eat it slow & enjoy it. Having one piece will not take away from your weight loss goals & it will kill a craving that will soon decrease once you start eating healthy regularly.

What are your next goals?

My next goals. I want to continue to help women make better eating choices by proving delicious meal plans. I also plan to have a cooking session with a few ladies where I️ cook & they taste to give them a better idea of how herbs really make a difference when cooking. I️’m also looking to start a podcast, about health & wellness, women in business, & overall women empowerment, very soon so be on the lookout for that!

BGRSD speech and award acceptance

 

 

It felt like the grammy’s honestly. I knew that I was going to be honored and would receive an
award, but as soon as they began to introduce me I became nervous as hell. What many of you
don’t know about me is that deep down inside I’m that same little girl from the deep south who
is crazy afraid of crowds and I have to literally give myself a pep talk when it comes to parties,
baby showers, ummm and even workshops and seminars! With that being said I talked myself
out of attending the event at least a couple dozen times. Funny how my better half could see
the uneasiness in my face in the up and coming hours until show time and dismissed every
excuse I uttered.

So the presenter said something to the effect of, “Introducing to some and mentioning to
others The TransformHer owner/operator of Fitness Is My Sickness and what seemed like a run
from the audience on The Price is Right I scurried down to the stage. I must admit the beginning
was a bit similar to a pair of knobby knees but as I began to share my journey, my why, my
passion the knobby-kneed speech transitioned into smooth sailing. I’ll attach my acceptance
speech down below, watch it and let me know what you think.

What happened is the epitome of exactly what this Fit lifestyle embodies. It gave me courage,
my life flashed before my eyes as I rushed that stage and I thought to myself hell, if I could stay
determined, encouraged and display pure grit for over five years building this business and in
my own personal fitness journey I was going to make this acceptance speech my BITCH and that
my dear hearts is what I did! Well, not quite but my message was well received.

Needless to say, the night was epic and I felt like I am really making a difference in the lives of
women within the community and in the interim I realized there is more work to be done! I
want women like you to realize that a healthy lifestyle and an exercise regimen gives you
courage, affords you determination and the ability to make anything in life your BITCH!
