Hi! I’m Shanna — the non-diet Registered Dietitian, wife, dog mom, Kansas gal and blogger behind Wellness For The Win. I created this blog in 2015, after I graduated from Kansas State University with degrees in Nutrition & Health, Dietetics and a minor in Kinesiology.
I have always been passionate about nutrition and health; however, my relationship with food and definition of “health” has changed significantly since my blog was born. After years of counting calories, disordered eating habits and poor body image, I finally found intuitive eating, and I haven’t looked back.
I practice and promote a balanced approach to health, and encourage others to eat a variety of foods that nourish and satisfy them, engage in joyful movement and practice regular self-care, as well as celebrate non-scale wins.
My mission with Wellness For The Win is to help you make peace with food and live a healthy and vibrant life that you love. I’m here to show you that living a healthy lifestyle can be simple, fun, flavorful, affordable and flexible. It doesn’t have to be complicated!
Now that you know a little bit about me, I hope you will stay awhile and explore! I want to encourage you to read some of my previous posts to learn about my personal struggles with perfectionism, body image, digestive issues, disordered eating behaviors and more, as many of you can probably relate to my long and complicated journey to health and self-acceptance. More importantly, I hope you will read my more recent posts relating to food freedom & intuitive eating, especially if you are fed up with following strict diet plans and looking to the scale for validation.
I hope that WFTW can be a place for you to find evidence-based nutrition information, healthy, family-friendly recipes, some laughs, and articles on intuitive eating that help you challenge old ways of thinking and ditch dieting once and for all. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for Wellness For The Win. Thank you so much for joining me.
