Ditch diets. Eat well. Let your light shine.
You're sick of thinking about what to eat. You get so overwhelmed with all the things you know you “should” be doing that you end up incapacitated.
You long to glorify God in your eating but you have no idea where to start and you’re afraid to fail again.
You’ve not given up on being your best self but it seems like the harder you try, the further you are from your goals.
I get it... I was there too.
You are not a failure, my friend, you simply lack the right tools and insight to get you where you want to go.
I believe that you can experience true freedom from endless (contradictory) food rules and diet guilt through your faith.
I believe that you do have the ability to achieve excellent health and peace with your body, for good, even if you have struggled for years (or decades).
I believe that it is the Grace of God that will change your life forever.
Imagine knowing what God has for your health and fitness-- You won’t be swayed by the latest diet fads; you’ll rest in quiet confidence that you are doing your right thing.

5 EASY STRATEGIES TO IMPROVE YOUR DIET
(and NONE of them change WHAT you eat!)
"I may as well eat..."
I stood staring into the fridge. My eyes scanned for something, really anything sweet, to eat. I hadn’t planned on eating that granola bar and now it felt too late. My eating day was “ruined” and I figured that I may as well keep going and start fresh tomorrow.
I knew the truth. My tomorrow's looked a lot like my tonight.
“I may as well keep eating”, I sighed in disappointment (with a side of relief).
But, then something clicked.
What happened next didn’t change my world but my world began to change.
I shut the door and walked away.
I will never forget that moment. It was the first time that I showed myself grace in my eating and that grace-- it changed everything.
And, it can do the same for you.
You see, true physical and spiritual health is not found at the end of a diet.
Striving for perfect adherence, labeling food as “good” or bad”, and that stinkin’ all-or-nothing thinking will leave you feeling helpless to change. But, a transformation is possible (and very likely!) when you change how you think about food.
When you accept that food is not the problem, then you can find the solution.
And that is why I created Grace Filled Plate.
I know you are probably nervous and excited to step away from the diet mentality (you know it doesn’t work but at least it’s familiar). Rest assured, you won’t find any hard, fast rules here.
Rather, I am only going to ask you to :
- Pause, think, and chew on what you read here.
- Step away from diet-induced self-judgment and look at your life as an observer (so you can learn from your mistakes and victories).
- Begin to ditch the negative self-talk because it is what has kept you stuck
And finally-- give yourself a TON of grace.
You won’t change overnight (I sure haven’t) and allowing yourself to make mistakes will actually speed up the change process.
Because that day I shut the refrigerator door, I put a stake in the sand of perfectionism. I allowed myself to be human, to be less than perfect, and to LET one granola bar be better for me than an entire box.
And that is the path to your goals.
At Grace Filled Plate, you will find:
- Simple, healthy changes you can start making today so that you will feel empowered instead of overwhelmed.
- Encouragement to look beyond “what you eat” so that you can uncover your true cravings and find better solutions for yourself.
- Resources to help you reach your health and fitness goals while finding food freedom and contentment in your own skin.
- A faith-filled focus that will keep pointing your eyes to Christ, the source of your strength and author of your change.

No more fad diets, failed attempts to change my lifestyle, or crazy approaches. Just grace-soaked Biblical truth and practical steps to a life of freedom. This is what I've been missing for so long, and I'm so thankful to have found her." -Lisa T.

By being a part of Grace Filled Plate, you’re a part of something more. Thanks to you and your support, I’m thrilled to announce that Grace Filled Plate is now giving 15% of all profits to a women’s sewing ministry in the Dominican Republic.
The Dominican is the 3rd largest human trafficking industry in the world. By teaching these women a way to provide for themselves and their children and showing them their worth and value in Jesus Christ, they’re equipped to withstand the pull of this horrific industry.
