I believe the way to happiness, beauty & mental clarity is through nutrition. But, nutrition has gotten a bad rap lately- there is too much emphasis on faulty science and anecdotal advice– not enough emphasis on intuition. My mission is to help you trust your instincts and eat what feeds you– not count calories, follow the fads, restrict yourself or feel guilty.


Good nutrition is about reaching your full potential: at work, in the gym, with your loved ones, and in your clothes. The way to get there is by eating what is naturally nutrient-dense and designed by nature to be delicious.


I’ve studied health & nutrition for the last 6 years & have worked as a private chef for 2 years. The transformations I’ve seen in my clients and friends has made for the most fulfilling career a person could ask for.


I am so thankful to have found such a motivating group of healthy people at Burn. I am teaching these nutrition seminars to connect with the Burn crew outside of class & spread some healthy knowledge.  I hope you can join us for our next seminar! If you can’t make it, please feel free to reach out to me for more nutrition guidance at

Here are Diane’s 6 Tips for Reorganizing Your Kitchen

1. Always keep fresh herbs and microgreens in the fridge to sprinkle on top of whatever you’re eating. They energize, detoxify & alkalinize!

2. Get rid of any food item with chemical names on the ingredient label. When selecting replacement foods, think about what each ingredient can do for your health- what we eat has the power to help us think more clearly, look more beautiful, and sleep more soundly. Think fresh vegetables & leafy greens, protein filled meats & eggs, and sweet, colorful fruits.

3. Switch out harsh, processed table salt for mineral rich sea salt. The more colorful, the better: think pink Himalayan, red Hawaiian, Celtic grey. Minerals help keep us hydrated, relaxed, and strong.

4. Keep lemons on hand for a burst of nutrients & flavor in your daily 60 or more ounces of water. A glass bowl full of lemons looks gorgeous on any countertop!

5. Toss margarine, vegetable oil, and canola oil in the trash and start using delicious and vitamin-filled macadamia nut oil, organic butter, and coconut oil.

6. Ditch dangerous nonstick cookware, aluminum & plastic for safe, non-carcinogenic cast iron, stainless steal, or enamel pots & pans. Glass and wood are great options for bowls.
