“Blessed be the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape”

I would like to share my journey with you. I’m a 39 year old woman, married with 3 kids and I have healed myself through plant based nutrition, yoga and lifestyle change. I hope that after reading this and browsing through my website, you feel inspired to become the best possible version of yourself. Taking it one day at time, being compassionate to yourself, and honoring your body. What matters is that you never give up on yourself. I spent years trying new diets and new fads. From vegan to pescatarian back to carnivore to pure raw vegan and on and on and on. But I truly found my balance about 4 years ago while living in California when I started to look at life as a blend of exercise, spirituality, nutrition and family.


The Brazilian Naturalist represents my journey from a suburb of Rio de Janeiro to the United States and from eating anything to truly understanding the meaning of healthy food.


I also knew I had to keep my body active, so I went to spinning classes, lifted weights and started running about 3 miles a day. Did it make me feel good? Yes. Did I love it?


I was diagnosed with narcolepsy and hypothyroidism and was prescribed heavy-duty pharmaceutical pills which quickly created a dependency.
