My name is Halle Cottis, and I have a passion for food and nutrition! Since graduating from The Ohio State University, I have pursued a career designed around my passions.
I began my career while working in the catering field for a major corporation. My passion for food continued to grow, and so my husband and I opened a restaurant in Savannah, Georgia, where we cooked everything from scratch.
My career was on the fast path, but it’s funny how life can change so quickly! In the blink of an eye, I went from having no children to having 3 girls: a 19-month-old and newborn twins.
I decided to put my career on hold, so we sold the restaurant and I managed my family full time.
I really enjoyed raising and nourishing my girls-but my life was busy and stressful. I’m sure you can relate!
Unfortunately, my health took a hit, and I became sick and my life-long struggle with autoimmune disease became front and center.
I began researching and came across some cutting-edge information that helped me get on the right healing path. It’s a journey, and I continue to strive towards good health daily.
You might be struggling with your health and/or autoimmune disease too. There are three components that have helped me heal tremendously and I know they can help others too! These components are eating clean food, healing on an emotional and spiritual level and removing toxins from your life.
Eating A Clean Diet!
My passion for food enabled me to create some really delicious healthy & healing meals. My collection of recipes kept growing (I have over 400 recipes here on Whole Lifestyle Nutrition), so I created a cookbook that has been hugely popular. You can view this cookbook in the tab above “My Books”!
In addition to cooking healthy meals, I wanted a way to cook meals for my family that was easy and stress-free! It can be challenging to cook from scratch every night wouldn’t you agree?
Well, I have great news! I am super excited to have teamed up with Real Plans™ to offer you a customizable meal plan service to simplify dinner time once and for all!
The cool part, we offer 3 different plans to fit your dietary needs, and these meals are nourishing and great for anyone trying to improve their health. These plans are: Traditional, Paleo, or Vegetarian! You can get more information here.
Nutrition, Emotional & Energy Healing
In order to better understand my struggles with my health and how to heal from them, I furthered my education to become certified as a Holistic Lifestyle Coach. This has given me the tools to help myself and others with their healing journey.
One must not forget that emotional and energy healing is equally important for good health. I believe that healing these two areas of your life is the absolute key to success!!
There is so much to learn about the psychology of true emotional and energy healing. This is where everything, and I mean EVERYTHING changed for me.
Learning how to embrace my energy and what my purpose here on this earth is has been absolutely life changing! Once again I find myself furthering my education to become an Energy Healer. (I will be taking on new clients in Spring of 2017)!
Removing Toxins From Your Life
As I mentioned above, for my entire adult life I’ve been on a healing journey. My struggles with my health have been challenging!
But through my struggles, I’ve learned a lot! Not only is clean food an important component for improving your health, removing toxins from your life is equally important.
Despite advancements of living in a greener society, we are not getting healthier. With modern technologies, more and more toxins are being released into the world we live in and more is needed to ensure that the next generation isn’t worse than the one before.
This is not your regular cleaning and remedies book, or even a regular do-it-yourself book. It’s a practical guide that will help you protect the health of you and your family from unwanted toxins that are present in the challenging times we live in.
I’m Glad You Are Here!
So here we are…taking steps forward to better our health and vitality. I’m am glad you are here!
Health & Healing is a journey, there is a lot to learn and putting in the work can be somewhat challenging, but the rewards are huge!
Let’s walk through this journey together, shall we?
