Hi there! Thanks for swinging by.
I'm Amanda Sevilla, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and yoga teacher who specializes in helping others develop healthier and happier relationships through plant-based eating and mindfulness exercises such as yoga and meditation.
I began my vegan journey in 2015 after learning about how diet can really influence our modern health statuses-- not to mention the ethical and environmental impact that the meat and dairy industry have on the world. This discovery led me to obtain a Bachelors of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics at Loma Linda University in Loma Linda, California (one of the five Blue Zones of the world!). I extended my education to Plant-Based Nutrition through the e-Cornell Course compiled by Dr. T. Colin Campbell.
After my undergraduate degree and taking my RD exam, I completed 500 hours of yoga teacher training in Vinyasa and Ashtanga in Rishikesh, India. Yoga, mindfulness, and meditation are now the cornerstones of my approach to life and to my clients.
Now, I work part time in the clinical setting where I provide medical nutrition therapy to patients complicated with heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, obesity, cancer, and more. I also work virtually 1-on-1 with clients to help them reach their goals through sustainable, healthy, and enjoyable lifestyle changes.
I understand how hard it might be to transition and learn about a plant-based diet, so that's why I created this website. I truly believe in the power that each person has over their health and lifestyle. All it takes is some guidance in the right direction, support to continue these changes, and cultivating tools to sustain life changing habits. I am honored to be part of a process that allows you to step back into your power and feel great with plants.
My hope is to offer you warm hugs through words about a healthy lifestyle, plant-based meals, growth and self love, mindfulness, nutrition, and little tidbits about my life as I continue on this ever-changing, ever-teaching journey!
I was born and raised in Southern California and reside here to this day. On any given day, you can find me at a coffee shop sipping on an oat milk latte, cooking up new plant-based meals, practicing yoga, or sharing my thoughts on Instagram.
