Clara's Story

Clara's Inspiration to Become a Dietitian and Adopt a Plant-Forward Lifestyle

“Reason I became a vegetarian is that my mother was diagnosed with metastasized cancer when I was 14. There wasn’t much hope that conventional medicine offered for her and so she worked with a natural doctor from Germany and my mother changed her lifestyle to vegetarian, frequent juicing, supplements, and trust in God. She lived another great, 13 years. It inspired me to want to know more about the power of food and it prompted me to study nutrition. Besides that I also was fascinated with all the weight loss diets that I saw family members go off and on.”
