halle10-265x300Learn a little bit more about Halle Cottis and her passions…

My name is Halle Cottis, and I have a passion for food!  Since graduating from The Ohio State University, I have pursued a career in food and nutrition.  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, I turned to the wrong foods and gained about 30 pounds.  When I finally decided to turn my health around in 2010, I began researching and came across some cutting-edge programs.  I gained a huge amount of knowledge and in the process I learned how to eat right with clean, organic foods.  Within several months, I lost 30 pounds and I continue to maintain a healthy weight.  I achieved this through proper nutrition and exercise, growing and preserving organic foods, and preparing meals for my family and myself in the healthiest way possible.

I love to cook!  My passion for food enabled me to create some really delicious yet healthy meals.  My collection of recipes kept growing, so I  created two really great cookbook:

I also created some delicious meals along the way and wanted to share them with you all!  

In addition to cooking healthy meals, I have become passionate about organic gardening.  I grow as much of my own organic food as possible.  I have found a very simple and easy way to garden organically that produces plenty of fruits and vegetables  for my family to eat throughout the summer and fall. My garden can also produce enough food during the growing season to supply us with canned food for the winter and spring months.  It is so rewarding to grow your own food and then bring it to the kitchen table for your family to enjoy!

I have discovered that I have yet another passion:  to help others achieve the same amazing results I have experienced.  In order to better understand this way of life, I furthered my education to become certified as a Holistic Lifestyle Coach with The C.H.E.K Institute.  Through their program, thousands of people have increased their vitality and decreased their stress while sculpting the body of their dreams.  I have also become a Certified Metabolic Typing Adviser.  In order to be truly healthy and fit, we all need to discover our unique biochemical or metabolic needs and then tailor our diets in a manner that will effectively support those needs. Metabolic Typing is a very innovative science and exciting new dietary technology that enables anyone to do that.  Check out our Lifestyle Coaching Page to sign up for our free Metabolic Typing® Course.  Halle also has her own holistic practice.  If you are looking to take your health and nutrition to the next level, you can work one on one with Halle herself.  Click here to see our Lifestyle Coaching Packages.

Finally, I began to think:  Why don’t I create a website for people like my family and myself?  Here I can share my healthy and delicious recipes, help others grow and preserve their very own organic food, and coach people to healthy success along the way.  So here we are…What a journey this has been!  Come and join me on this wonderful adventure-you’ll be so happy you did!
