Get to Know Melanie From Food 4 Thought


Melanie, tell us a little bit about yourself and why you started Food 4 Thought


My holistic health and life journey started approximately 11 years ago when I had a “mini” health crisis. I started researching alternative remedies and techniques to heal causes rather than just addressing my symptom(s). When I became pregnant with my daughter almost 7 years ago, I started thinking of nutrition in a different manner and wanted to build her palate with good foods and flavors since she would never know the difference between a French fry or a carrot or broccoli unless I introduced those foods. From there my passion, interest, and research in holistic health and nutrition continued to grow; I started juicing and incorporating more whole foods into our meals. After I had my son, 3 years ago, I decided to start talking to groups about the power of fruits, vegetables, and Juice Plus+ Whole Food Nutrition and then went onto study at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (the world’s largest nutrition school) where I studied over 100 different dietary theories and enhanced my overall knowledge and experience that health is a result of the interconnection between our mind, body, and soul; balance in all areas of our life are critical to ensure health and well being.

I was blessed to have a wonderful support system and team during and after the birth of both of my children. I understand the delicate balance of being a mom, working outside of the home full time and also pursing my passion for health and empowering others. Those trials along with positive experiences have led me to support moms (women planning on becoming pregnant, moms-to-be, moms at any stage, etc) and families through individualized and group health coaching services along with health and wellness group classes.

Personalized Health Coaching

I had the opportunity to sit down with the owner and founder of Food 4 Thought, Melanie Schmidt to go over my health history, eating habits and physical and emotional health. Melanie took notes during our session and gave me suggestions on things I can improve on, things I’m doing right and shared some healthy tips with me. Less than 24 hours after we met, Melanie had emailed me a detailed plan tailored just to my needs and wants. I enjoyed my time with Melanie and learned some valuable lessons. One of the take-aways I got from Melanie was to start a food journal. I find myself grabbing a little of the kids snack or cutting a little piece of brownie from a pan mindlessly. These little bites really add up and Melanie suggested a food journal to keep myself accountable.
