"When a plant's leaves are turning yellow, you don't paint the leaves green.  You look at the cause of the problem.
If only we treated our bodies the same way!"

My Story


Nutrition Matters, LLC first began in Hoboken, NJ in February 2005 and is now located in Bergen County, New Jersey. Much of my previous work was with Fortune 500 and Fortune 100 companies helping individuals and groups find creative ways to integrate healthier habits into their busy lives.  Together, we looked at the root cause of what is ailing people and we found solutions that were suited to their unique nutritional biochemical needs and personal goals.  It's like a personalized recipe so you can enjoy life with optimal health!


"Nutrition is about more than the food we choose to eat for our body.  It's about how we nourish ourselves in other ways too including mind

 and spirit.  We are all a collection of amazing synergies"

 - Linda McLachlan, MA, RDN, FMN, CLT

My Approach

Through my own journey and from working with thousands of people throughout the years, I've learned how food not only provides calories for our bodies but how it also provides information that speaks to our unique biochemistry. The food we eat communicates with our individual chemical make-up and has a direct influence on whether we end up with disease in our bodies or not. In fact, common ailments such as headaches, constipation, brain fog and fatigue are actually symptoms that something in our body is out of balance.  

Even still, nutrition is about more than just the food we choose to eat for our body.  Nutrition is about how we nourish ourselves in other ways too including mind and spirit. It's why all nutrition matters. I welcome the opportunity to join you on this journey to help restore your unique nutritional balance so you can enjoy optimal health. Welcome to my site!

7-days of Real Food!
Can YOU do it?


Experience tells me that not a day goes by without you likely eating some sort of processed food.  Am I right?  I get it. Life is super busy these days and when we run short on time to cook, it's easier to grab the quickest item which can often be a packaged product.  


Think of a machine.  It works great when it's maintained well.  If you add sand to the machine, it will start to function poorly.  The inside of the machine will get all mucked up and slowly ruin the gears.  But if you maintain your machine by providing it with good oil and limited sand, it will continue to run well with great results.  

Your body is a machine!

Whole foods are the 'oil'

Processed food products are the 'sand'

One of the best things you can do to reset your health is to remove all processed food products from your diet, even for as little as a week!  

Join our supportive group on FB and challenge yourself!  It's FREE!!  You've got nothing to lose and so much health to gain!   Give your body and your mind a reset starting today.  Come on, it's only for 7 days!  How hard can it be?
