About

MEET THE FOUNDER, VALERIE AGYEMAN, R.D.N.

My name is Valerie Agyeman and I am a Women’s Health Dietitian, Podcast Host and Community Leader. My passion for nutrition was born over 15 years ago. Once I discovered the power of nutrition in achieving good health, I never looked back. 

My mission and God-given purpose is to help women truly understand the powerful relationship between what they eat and how their body looks, feels and functions so they can make more wiser, conscious choices and establish a healthy food and body relationship.

My passion project is about creating a safe space for women to talk openly about common but often taboo topics related to our bodies. I’m here to support, empower, and inspire you to learn more about your body, so you can flourish in every aspect of your life! Because you deserve it, yes you do.

I am here to encourage and inspire you to live your best life, in good health.”
