I'm Riyana, and I'm so glad you are here!
I'm a Certified Holistic Nutritionist (NTP), Certified Whole30 Coach, Mom of 3 boys, recipe developer, and a lover of all things FOOD!
Before my career in Nutrition, I spent 15 years working in Corporate America / Asia. I totally understand the pressure of corporate life as well as the pressure that comes with having a family!
I'm a New Yorker at heart but live in Singapore, which is where I now call home!
How did I get into nutrition? I guess you could say I was a “type A” workaholic who didn’t realize what I was doing to myself until my health gave me a wakeup call. I (like a lot of women I meet) was suffering from fertility, adrenal, digestive, and autoimmune issues. I was literally a mess! After many years of doctor visits, medication, and a lot of feeling sorry for myself, I had had enough.
I started to do my own research on ways to heal. Slowly and gradually, I began to change my food and lifestyle towards a path of healing. I began to understand how to listen to my body and how real food and lifestyle changes could do wonders. I needed to know more, and I wanted to share this information with anyone who would listen. So, I decided to be brave, quit my corporate job, and pursue my passion for all things health & wellness at the Nutritional Therapy Association. I was in awe of all I had learned and couldn’t wait to start helping others!
My passion is cooking, developing delicious healthy recipes, and teaching others about the power of real food, lifestyle, and mindset.
