I lived in Italy for a summer and I could eat pizza for every meal, every day.  


My husband and I met when he was one of my my high school best friend (and prom date)'s roommate. Now my friend is dating my sister (for five years!).


I once lived and worked on a tall ship for a summer.

I worked as a natural foods personal chef for 3 years. 

Leggings are pants and I won't take no for an answer.

I'm obsessed with doctor shows- but Grey's Anatomy will always be my favorite.

Give me a glass of red wine and a hunk of dark chocolate and I am one happy girl. 

fun facts

hey there!

I'm Kristin Dovbniak (but you can call me Kris).

I help women take the stress out of healthy living, uncomplicate eating and find their beautiful balance, in food and life. 

I'm a born-and-raised New Englander, sailor wife, mama to two sweet and spunky little ladies and an unofficial coffee conossieur.

I'm a holistic health coach, certified intuitive eating counselor, podcaster, writer, speaker, recipe creator and trained chef.

But I wasn't always this healthy. 

I struggled with food and my body- on-again, off-again dieting, restricting and bingeing, overexercising and just generally treating my body like it was garbage, instead of a gift for over a decade.

It wasn't until I found freedom with food, worth in God over the size of my jeans and health- beyond obsession that I truly stepped into the life I had always desired to live.  

healthy, happy, whole.

Now I help women do the same. 

Because healthy living shouldn't mean deprivation.

Wellness shouldn't feel like a struggle. 

You can eat well and live well- without restriction.

I know- I'm living proof.
