Learn How To Eat Healthy Without Changing Your Busy Lifestyle

Eat healthy and save time. 

It sounds like an impossible request doesn’t it? 

I used to think so when I started my journey too.   The good news is that it doesn’t have to take all your time.  Let me show you how to transition to a healthier lifestyle on your terms. 

You have already taken the first step…you’re here!

Avoiding Processed Foods…

Unprocessed food is food that is in its most natural state: real food.  Processed food is food that is altered from its original state, sometimes a little, sometimes a lot.  The more you change a food during processing, the more you should avoid it. Let me help you sort it out. 

About Colleen

Master Certified Health Coach

My name is Colleen Carlson and I want to stay healthy and age very slowly. My decision to become a Health Coach is based on being a 22+ year cancer survivor. In 1995, at the young age of 26, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I spent the majority of the next twenty years dealing with doctors and appointments and surgeries. When I was finally told, around the age of 42 or so, that I was probably clear of the disease, I thought I could finally breathe a sigh of relief and just be healthy.

Being on the verge of my 50th birthday I, like others my age, am finding that “preventative testing” is my new reality. Just because of my age! I knew that I did not want to go down that road again, so I began to research things I could do to stay healthy and live longer. And Consult Colleen was born! I began slowly, and made small changes, but still saw the positive impact those changes had on how I looked and felt. Change is hard and it takes a long time to make it a habit, but it can happen.

While I know a healthy lifestyle cannot guarantee I will never face a disease again, it certainly improves my chances. I have learned how to transition to a healthier lifestyle, on my terms, and I want to share what I have learned with you.
