The Wild-Hearted Dietitian, Smoothie Goddess, Healer of Guts, Slayer of  Symptoms and a BIG TIME adventurer. I love salsa dancing, busting moves in Hip Hop,  skateboarding, yoga and tennis.

Secret confession…for years, I struggled with tons of digestive problems, sinus issues, breakouts and even frustrating weight imbalances. I’m a bit of a wild-hearted soul and really didn’t want these symptoms to stop me from doing the everyday things I loved.

After receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Nutrition & Dietetics along with Masters Certificate in Food & Nutrition Science, I wasn’t satisfied with bouncing from med to med and was more intrigued by how food could heal my body. So, I went on to specialize in integrative nutrition and finally ditched my symptoms for good!

For the past 10 years, I have been helping clients eliminate their crazy symptoms with the healing powers of food so they can get back to their favorite activities in life!

Let’s get this nutrition party started!!

What They’re Saying…

I became under the care of Carrie due to digestive issues that would not resolve for almost 2 years after several visits/tests done by GI doctor. Carrie listened to what my usual diet consisted of and suggested that I have a fructose tolerance test, which came out positive. Through other advanced testing, dietary changes, her guidance and recipe suggestions, I am feeling so much better. I have my life back again and my digestive issues have become manageable.”

– JUDITH F.

“I am so thankful for Care’s program. By following her insight I have changed my lifelong bad eating habits and I am now enjoying healthy foods! Best of all – I no longer have nausea every day! Many of my digestive issues are gone and I feel like a “normal” person again!!”

– ALLY T.

“When I first started working with Carrie, I was depressed, struggling with my weight and digestive issues. I came to her seeking accountability and direction so I could take back control of my health. Now I no longer feel isolated, have joint pain or digestive issues. I am feeling way more confident since losing 100 pounds and finally back to my love for rock climbing.”

– MARGO

“Before working with Care I was already completing an elimination diet for 30 days but still getting bloating and pains in my stomach. This program will take all the work out for you and provide you with healthy recipes that you can enjoy every day. You can whip up her recipes quick and be on your way knowing that it’s not going to cause all those uncomfortable issues.”

– ALY P.

“She’s whip-smart and embodies what nutrition can do for health in her own lifestyle. Thanks to her advice, I’m now much more versed in nutrition, I’ve learned how to lose weight without ever feeling hungry and I feel much more equipped to avoid chronic inflammation and disease. Most staggering of all, my regular debilitating headaches have essentially vanished.”

– BECKY L.

“Either I go big or go home! That is exactly what I said during our first consult together. I was surprised at what I learned about the power of food on my journey. Within just seven short weeks of following a nutrition plan created from my food sensitivity and nutrient test results, I lost 17 pounds and my rosacea is significantly better. ”

– CATLIN T.

“We had so much fun with Smoothies Gone Wild plus I lost 4 pounds!  Creamy, sweet and full of anti-inflammatory benefits with pumpkin, coconut milk and so much more healthy goodness! Thanks to the lovely Care @fuelyourwildside for this awesome recipe and informative video in the VIP portal for the #smoothiesgonewild, #vitamix challenge. The Mister said it was the bomb and dear daughter took a huge glass to work 😍 One happy #vegan family with day one ”

– Lissie

“I came to her in desperate need to lower blood sugars and lose weight. I have achieved both, but there are things that make Carrie a cut above the rest! She is the most enthusiastic Dietitian I have ever seen, as I have seen a few. She really loves the “journey” with people to better health. I have never been as motivated before to change to a new lifestyle of living. I believe she was very vital in helping to preserve my life.

– Stanley G.

Carrie is undoubtedly the best dietitian that I have ever worked with. She pushes me just enough so that I feel motivated. She makes me want to be a better and more healthy person. I have become more confident in knowing what to eat which has resulted in losing weight in a much healthier way”

– Guy F.

“Carrie’s programs demonstrate excellent organizational and planning abilities, shown tremendous leadership and communication expertise, exceptional nutrition knowledge, and a true dedication to the dietetic profession. She has the ability to transform her ideas into a brilliant working program.”

– Gina K.

“Our family traveled to Spain and Italy recently! Alaina has been able to be pain free since working with you on her GI issues. She is running cross country now and loving it, she used to get such bad stomach pains. Staying away from her reactive foods has been KEY. She applied to the UofM to follow your steps in nutrition. You have been quite an inspiration.”

– Sue P.

“The nutrition counseling that I received from Carrie has had a significant impact on my life. Carrie has taken the time and shown patience to be sure that I understand the science behind her recommendations.  She has given valuable insight to combat my diet, lack of sleep and overall mental health.  Plus she always has great educational resources to help support these changes. I appreciate the time and thoroughness she spends with me. My overall health started to improve after my first visit.”

– Sara H.

“After talking with Carrie on our first visit, I knew right away that I had found the most knowledgeable dietitian I had ever talked to.  I was shocked when my blood test results came back and found out I was sensitive to corn. I cut it out from my diet completely!  I think just this one adjustment alone has brought about the health changes I have experienced.  After one week of following her meal plans my nightly leg cramps completely disappeared.  I had been plagued by these cramps for over 2 years. I have since, talked to my doctor to reduce my gabapentin at night. I have also been steadily losing weight even though I eat more now than I ever have.”

– Joanne G.

“I want to extend a big thank you to Carrie for her leadership in nutrition.  I learned a lot about healthy eating which I have been able to whole heartily implement.  Weight loss is not fast for me but feel I am moving in the right direction.  The healthy snacks at each meeting inspired me to some baking.  It is encouraging to know that there are foods that are both healthy and satisfying.  My family has enjoyed me on this journey and together we have learned to make better food choices.”

– Robin J.

“Carrie did an excellent job speaking to our group.  Her presentation was clear and well prepared. She does an excellent job communicating with the audience.  All the feedback I got was so positive about the contribution she made to their lives.”

– Joy F.

DO YOU OFFER THE DISCOVERY SESSION IN THE CLINIC?

No, I do not offer the discovery session in the clinic.

Why do I do it this way and not offer the discovery session in the clinic? Because not everyone wants or needs to be seen initially in the clinic. Some of my clients cannot afford to fly or physically drive to see me and I am dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to all of my clients and being on camera live through a virtual consult has allowed me to help so many more clients struggling to get to the root cause of their frustrating symptoms. Once, a client is accepted into the personalized coaching program I actually spend a few hours reviewing the following categories in the initial questionnaire (note this initial intake questionnaire is way more detailed then the 10 questions asked prior to applying for the discovery session and may only take 30 mins or so to complete).

Medical condition(s)

Nutrition history

Behavior and lifestyle

Nutrition journal and health goals

Taking the time to dive in and review these critical pieces before we actually meet in person at the clinic helps me provide a more optimized personalized nutrition plan with the following features to help you achieve your desired goals.

Tailored recipes, meal plans and supplement recommendations

Any further functional nutrition testing specific to certain symptoms and conditions

Preliminary nutrition recommendations and education

Effective strategies, support and accountability

I want our time together at the clinic to be spent helping you focus on the changes that we need to make to get your body back and not reviewing or answering your intake questionnaire questions.  Prior to our initial in clinic consult, I also coordinate care with the rest of my staff at the clinic so we can get the necessary labs drawn at the end of our 90 minute initial consult. This usually only takes an additional 10-15 minutes and has been much easier then scheduling another time to drive into the clinic for a lab draw. Overall this approach helps you get your results faster! Also, not all of the unique nutrition services that I offer are in the clinic. Over the years of working with clients just in the clinic, I have seen a lot of barriers standing in the way of reaching some amazing transformations. So I walked away from just providing traditional in clinic appointments to provide a variety of other other unique services and programs that facilitate life long changes.

Check out question “DO YOU OFFER IN CLINIC CONSULTS” for more details. 

WHAT IS THE CHARGE PER APPOINTMENT AFTER THE DISCOVERY SESSION?

I am dedicated to helping my clients have life changing transformations and do not offer pay-for-appointment visits.  After the discovery call, I do provide in person appointments but these are reserved for specialty testing consults at the clinic and certain individualized programs. The online and 1:1 personalized coaching programs I offer to clients typically range from 3 – 6+ months. A variety of nutrition tests are very dependent on your symptoms and varies from person to person. Therefore, I can’t provide further insight until I have an opportunity to hear your story and take a closer look at your nutrition and medical history.

Please see question “DO YOU OFFER IN CLINIC CONSULTS?” for more details. 

DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?

To provide the highest quality of care and to help my clients achieve amazing results, I don’t accept insurance. The unique nutrition services, programs and laboratory tests are not covered at this time.  You can however look into your HSA to see if it covers Medical Nutrition Therapy and or supplements from a Registered and Licensed Dietitian.  All scheduling and payments are taken online through our secure scheduling system.

  • Payment is due prior to scheduling your discovery consult.
  • Methods of payment via credit card only are: Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover
DO I HAVE TO TRAVEL TO MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA FOR MY FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION APPOINTMENTS?

I help serve clients nationally and provide a 90 minute personalized discovery sessions by video consultation only. During this time, I review your needs, listen to your concerns and share relevant nutrition content through a special live virtual video format so you can take away the recording to better implement what we discussed during our time together. I do provide in clinic person appointments but these are reserved for specialty testing consults and tailored programs at the clinic.  For those who are unable to travel to Minnesota, I do offer virtual video consults and various programs online where you can access nutrition information, videos, meal plans, recipes to reach your goals.  We can also mail specialty labs to you as needed and discuss results virtually.

Please see question “DO YOU OFFER IN CLINIC CONSULTS?” for more details. 

DO YOU OFFER IN CLINIC CONSULS?

Yes, I do offer in clinic consults.  However, I ask that you please book a 90 minute virtual consult first.  All scheduling and payments are taken online prior to jumping on our call together. During the discovery session we will meet LIVE 1:1 virtually via video platform together over desktop or ipad. At this time, I will have the chance to learn more about your overall nutrition needs and the ability to provide you with some specific recommendations, the recording of our individualized consult together and actionable resources that you can take with you to implement that day.

At the end of our consult, we will also determine if more nutrition services are needed to help you on your journey to taking back your health.  If you would like more individualized consults, accountability, support then my 1:1 personalized coaching program or other programs may be the perfect fit for you!  Neither of us will know this till we jump on a call and discuss in more detail your overall health goals.

If you decide to move forward with my 1:1 personalized coaching program then we will initiate you as a patient into “onpatient” my secure HIPAA compliant electronic medical records system so you can fill out the in depth online nutrition questionnaire and provide any necessary medical/nutrition history (such as previous testing, medications etc) for me to review prior to scheduling our 90 minute in clinic consult.  This form must be completed 48 hours prior to meeting during our initial in clinic consult otherwise the consult will need to be rescheduled for a later time.

WHAT DOES INTEGRATIVE & FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION MEAN?

Integrative means bringing together separate elements into a harmonious and unified whole. Functional nutrition addresses the underlying causes of disease using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership.  Functional nutrition involves understanding the origins, prevention, and treatment of complex, chronic disease.  Treating with a focus on prevention through nutrition, diet, and exercise; use of the latest laboratory testing and other diagnostic techniques; and prescribed combinations botanical medicines, supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs, or stress-management techniques.

When working with clients, I look at the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.  Everyone is different and a nutrition program that is personalized to your symptoms, desires and specific to your needs is vital for your success.  When working together, your unique genetic makeup is considered, along with both internal (mind, body, and spirit) and external (physical and social environment) factors that are in need of balance.

Indicators that your body may be “out of balance”:

Increased calorie intake

Decreased metabolism

Unstable blood sugar

Increased appetite

Mood swings

Depression/Anxiety/Stress

Increased emotional eating

Sleep disturbances

GI disturbances

Chronic disease

Living in a society with mixed messages can not only be overwhelming but very confusing. Personally listening to your story and guiding you through tailored treatments that meet your unique needs is necessary in getting to the root cause and achieving amazing results.

WILL YOU COORDINATE CARE WITH MY PROVIDERS?

If you go through one of my 1:1 personalized coaching programs, you will be initiated into Onpatient a secure HIPPA compliant online patient portal where you can share all of your pertinent medical nutrition history.  This is where you can also indicate what providers you would like me to coordinate care with. All of the nutrition recommendations, resources, messaging etc are shared through this online portal so you can easily access the information discussed along with supplement recommendations and tests results provided.  I also will write letters to specific doctor as needed and can easily coordinate care via phone or through fax. Click here to visit Onpatient

WHAT TYPE OF ADVANCED NUTRITION TESTING DO YOU OFFER?

To help provide a tailored approach, I offer targeted lab testing (that you can do in the privacy of your own home or in the clinic) which addresses a variety of nutrition related symptoms. During the discovery session these labs are reviewed in detail to provide insight on how certain systems such as hormone, digestion and detoxification work and how I go about designing an individualized program that rebalances your body. The types of tests used are blood, stool, saliva, and or urine samples.

Prior to ordering any additional labs we review your personal and family health history and make recommendations for lab tests that are appropriate for your specific health issues.  Once your lab work has been completed, I will explain the meaning of your test results to you in a series of follow up consultations.  During this time, we create an individualized health program for you which includes diet changes, tailored meal plans/recipes, nutritional supplements, and exercise, lifestyle and stress management recommendations. Subsequent consultations are scheduled during the 1:1 program to monitor your progress and to modify your nutrition needs.

CAN I JUST GET THE FOOD SENSITIVITY OR OTHER TESTS YOU OFFER? I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT FOODS OR CHEMICALS I SHOULD BE AVOIDING. I DON'T WANT OR NEED ANY NUTRITION GUIDANCE, I CAN FIGURE OUT WHAT TO EAT AFTER THE TESTS ON MY OWN.

When I hear this question, I cringe because I know you may be out there searching for a certain test (ex: food sensitivity testing…that’s a big one) and may not even be thinking about what type of food sensitivity, hormone, digestive test you’re getting.  I do not provide just testing services nor do I recommend this approach to taking back your health. Working with someone who can help implement the test results is so so so important.

The tests that I provide are unique to your nutrition related symptoms along with your medical/nutrition history. If I don’t think you need a particular nutrition related test then I don’t recommend you waste the money or time. Also, there are so many tests on the market claiming to be the best and learning which ones are truly good and how to interpret them is half the battle. Something that I spent a lot of years learning to help me clients get results.

Here is what I have seen happen first hand to clients.

Let’s look at food sensitivity testing as an example..

You get the test and maybe you take the next step and avoid ALL the foods that your told. You do great for a week trying to avoid the foods the test says not to eat, but some, all or possibly more symptoms are still lingering and then your like, “forget this…I’m not feeling better, I have no idea what to eat, it’s too hard and I’m not going to keep avoiding all these foods I love.” So now you’re upset that you ended up dropping money on something that didn’t work and you start back up bouncing from provider to provider desperate to find someone to help you find out what to eat.  And where do your test results end up in all of this?  Stashed away somewhere collecting dust! So here you are 6 months later upset that you spent the money, confused on what to eat or not eat and frustrated that those nagging symptoms are still hanging around.

PLEASE HERE THIS>>> food sensitivity testing is NOT the be all end all answer. It is a piece of the puzzle. You need to do other nutrition approaches together in order to get to the root cause of your symptoms. Yes, incorporating certain types of food sensitivity, allergy or intolerance testing is GREAT but how you interpret those tests, take out and eliminate reactive foods as well as how or when you strategically reintroduce reactive foods is VERY, VERY important. Understanding how toxins, heavy metals and bag buggers are playing a role in this too is crucial to overcoming adverse reactions to foods.  Setting yourself up with the right goals, strategies, meal plans, recipes maybe even certain supplements if needed is a total game changer.

If you don’t take this approach, you could end up with more deficiencies and the SAME or maybe even more symptoms especially if you eliminate the wrong foods for the wrong amount of time.  Again, this is just one test that we are talking about here and when it comes to healing your body with holistic nutrition you just can’t be narrow minded.  Discovering the root cause of your symptoms and understanding the importance of an individualized approach is so important to your success in ditching chaotic symptoms.

HOW MUCH DO THE TESTS COST?

The cost of tests really depend on your individualized needs. Until I dive in and know more about your medical nutrition history it is really hard for me to guess what tests you may need. I don’t want to just run random tests and waste money or time. I do recommend a few general tests in my 1:1 program but again this is dependent on what type of symptoms you may be experiencing and what have you already done in the past.

Since, about 90% of my clients are women struggling with autoimmune and inflammatory conditions I tend to offer certain tests more routinely. Discovering where your micro nutrient levels are at such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, omega’s etc along with food sensitivity, allergy and or intolerance testing to know what foods are causing inflammation is essential. This is all very helpful in providing more guidance on your exact needs so we can create tailored plans, recipes and the necessary supplements to achieve your health goals.

It may be 3-6 months into the program and if I think we need run a certain test or two based on how your body is responding then we move forward with the testing. There are just so many tests dependent on certain nutrition related needs that it is too long to list them all here.

DO YOU PROVIDE SPECIFIC DIETS TO FOLLOW?

I believe that everyone’s body is unique and nutrition should be tailored to your specific symptoms as well as meet your energy needs.  I recommend individualized nutrient needs based on specific testing with clients in my 1:1 personalized nutrition coaching programs. Every client in this program receives tailored meal plans and recipes based on their individualized blood results as they eliminate reactive foods and reintroduce non reactive foods to heal the body.

Other digestive, hormone and nutrient related tests are provided to further heal the leaky gut. This overall process calms the immune system, detoxifies the body and eliminates chaotic symptoms.  This helps us know instead of guess which offending foods are leaking into the blood stream and causing inflammation.  This also assists in creating uniquely designed supplement plans when recommending certain herbs and botanical’s.

The recipes that I create in all of my programs (1:1 or online) address a variety of autoimmune and inflammatory conditions and have removed common irritants (such as Dairy + Soy + Gluten) to help strengthen your immune system so you can get to the root cause of your symptoms. All of the recipes are full of metabolism boosting calories that are rich in rainbow bright plant based phytonutrients!

  • 100% whole foods
  • no processed foods
  • no preservatives or chemicals
DO YOUR MEAL PLANS & RECIPES CONTAIN CALORIES AS WELL AS CARB, PRO and FAT BREAKDOWNS?

I take an approach that looks at the balance of CARBS, PRO and fat so you can vanish cravings, stay full and get lean. However, counting calories and restricting overall nutrients is not the main focus of my programs. I believe in eating whole foods and helping you identify which ones are wreaking havoc (aka causing inflammation) within your body. I do provide estimations of overall calories and  macronutrient breakdowns based on your individualized metabolic needs in my 1:1 programs.

We want to discover what foods are leading to your irritating skin issues, digestive problems, headaches, joint pains, weight imbalances and more. My approach is about healing your gut and getting to the root cause of what foods may be holding you back from living a truly adventurous life!

WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?

Due to the overwhelming requests for a discovery session, along with all the work that goes into preparing for our time together, I do not offer reimbursement at this time.  However, you can reschedule your time if needed. I ask that at least 48 hours of notice is provided so another person has the opportunity to be helped.

The programs provided have unique terms and conditions based on the features provided within and are discussed upon purchasing.

DO YOU JUST PROVIDE A LAUNDRY LIST OF SUPPLEMENTS?

NO WAY!! I advocate a “food first” approach to achieving nutritional adequacy but also believe that the world we live in makes it impossible to get all the vitamins and minerals the body needs from food alone. Vitamins and minerals act as high quality information that help our bodies function as best as possible.  Even those with healthy clean diets have a difficult time getting all the required nutrients. In addition, our toxic and stressful world often depletes our nutrient levels and the nutrient levels in the foods we eat. By having a solid vitamin and supplement regimen you can fill in the nutritional gaps and enhance physiological functioning.

Supplements do not replace a healthy diet but they do enhance it. That is why I like functional micronutrient and GI testing. So we are not just guessing on what nutrients (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, probiotics, omega’s etc) that you need. I find that guessing just causing you to end up buying a bunch of supplements that just sit in the cupboard while you still struggle with symptoms.  I believe that an accurate analysis of your body’s deficiencies, nutrient related genetic SNP’s and individualized microbiome (aka gut) needs  can help address your symptoms. After identifying exactly what your body needs, we are able to create tailored meal plans, recipes and shopping lists unique to you so you don’t always have to just rely on a laundry list of supplements.  I do recommend a few standard supplements for overall general health and if you are significantly low and need an extra bust or struggling with symptoms that we are not getting relief from using dietary strategies then I will recommend specific supplementation as needed.

Research has shown that 50% of those taking multivitamins are STILL deficient. When it comes to utilizing herbal and non-herbal dietary supplements to address specific health conditions, it’s important that your body is provided with accurate dosages from reputable high quality brands.  It is also super important that we make sure that your gut is able to properly absorb and digest these nutrients so getting out offending foods and putting in foods that heal your gut while balancing your hormones is our number 1 priority!  This will save you money in the long run!! 🙂
