fun facts

The 5th member of our family is a 15 pound black panther... I mean, cat, named Samson.


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


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

I don't like cake. But I LOVE ice cream (especially cookie dough). 

I was a natural foods personal chef for 3 years. 

I do actually love kale (really!). 

My favorite movie of all time is Romeo and Juliet (the one with Kate and Leonardo).

Meet Kris

Hey friend, I am so glad you're here!


I'm Kristin Dovbniak, or Kris for short.

I'm a holistic health coach, certified Intuitive Eating counselor, writer, speaker and host of the Healthy Balanced Mama Podcast. 

I help women ditch dieting for good, make peace with food and their bodies and own their health to live healthy, happy, whole lives.  

I'm also a trained chef, with a passion for helping moms simplify their nutrition through meal planning, meal prep and making healthy living work, for their families.

I love Jesus and sharing His message of worthiness beyond our bodies, our food choices, our social media following, how well behaved our kids are or how perfect our life looks from the outside. There is no need to hide- His grace covers all. 

I live on an island in beautiful New England with my sailor husband and our two sweet and spunky girls, Sage (5) and Wren (1.5).
