Schedule a Discovery Call today to get started.

What can I expect?

1. Initial Session

Our first meeting is a 90-minute Nutrition Strategy Session (virtual if you are not local to the Richmond area). I’ll take time to learn about any present conditions, symptoms, stressors, your history, food sensitivities, supplements/medications taken, and guidance from your physician. We’ll discuss what you want to get out of our time working together, review your intake and your 7-day journal (provided).

2. Roadmap 

From there, we co-create a roadmap for you, with a food and lifestyle-first approach, outlining a path forward prioritizing actionable next steps, resources, and recipes. All guidance includes eating whole foods (minimally processed), plant forward, vegetarian and omnivore friendly, anti-inflammatory, balancing blood sugar, and nervous system regulation support. 

3. Follow the plan and follow up

During these follow up appointments we’ll also create a “Meal Ideas List” so you have a go-to list of healthy ideas that meet your needs and help you know exactly what to cook and eat. Whatever life throws at you that month, you can count on having a Nutritionist by your side to cheer you on and help navigate any obstables to achieving your goals. You’ll have email and voice message access to Shelly throughout your plan period.

If you are managing a chronic health condition and following a physician’s protocol, a 6 or 12-month plan is best.

*Please note: While Shelly is a candidate for the CNS (Certified Nutrition Specialist) licensure and actively under CNS supervision, Medical Nutrition Therapy is outside of the Pure Roots scope at this time. If that level of nutrition care is needed, you’ll be referred out to the appropriate level of care or supported in partnership with your chosen practitioner.

NOTE: these consultations are not intended to diagnose or directly treat health conditions, but rather to complement a wellness plan by implementing lifestyle and nutrition habits in the home. If you have a health condition or disease state you want to address, you will need to be under the care of a physician and may be referred out as needed.

“Shelly is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to nutrition and feeling great in general. Her classes and nutritional advice were essential for me to get through the Ragnar Race and perform at my maximum. I would recommend her expertise to anyone, from people starting off on their path to being healthy, to the most elite athletes.”

“Eating new food combinations as well as learning about ways to improve my nutrition in the woods as well as in daily life challenged and satisfied me intellectually. You don’t want to miss this weekend retreat!”
Kylin Murren, Outdoor Nutrition Retreat Participant
”I just wanted to tell you how impressed I am with your nutritional consultations. Your expertise in tailoring a diet to my lifestyle and health issues has made selecting, preparing and eating food exciting and interesting again for me. I’ve not only lost 34 lbs and kept it off but my overall health has improved dramatically.”
