Nourishment is about way more than food, and so is nourishment coaching
I've been helping clients transform their relationship to food and their health for nearly a decade, after suffering my own debilitating health conditions and realizing that food wasn't enough to heal.
I created a Nourishment Framework™ that empowers you to better understand your body, habits, and choices in a personalized way so you can feel nourished—beyond food.
It doesn't matter how much you know about food, nutrition, or self care, if you're not addressing the overwhelm of your nervous system first, your results won't stick. So, that's where we start!
We'll look at root cause patterns in both health and habits
Both may stem from prolonged periods of overwhelm (which is considered a biological trauma), from nutrient deficiencies, and from a disconnection to all the parts of you—body, brain, emotions, energy, and intuition.
My expertise is bringing these together to help you feel your best, even if you don't know what that is right now.
You can expect to move through these phases
Assess: You’ll figure out what’s causing you to feel stuck and overwhelmed, so you can finally move forward with your health and habits
Learn: You'll learn how your body speaks to you, the role your nervous system plays in your health, and tools to work with it all so you can feel capable of taking even better care of yourself
Choose: You'll begin to understand what is and isn't working for you, beyond food, so you can choose overall nourishment over strict nutrition guidelines
Trust: You'll build a trust in yourself that you can always make the right decisions, no matter what is happening in life
You need to feel nourished in life, not just with food!
I'll help you get there
A bit about me
I am a foodie through and through. I love pancakes, potato chips, sushi, and sweet and savory combos (like ham and jam on gf sourdough)
My daily nourishment non-negotiables include walks in nature, delicious food, excellent sleep, couch time with my husband, and a good long sit my infrared sauna (while watching PBS Masterpiece shows)
Colorado is my chosen home but have lived in five US states and six countries—my favorite was Austria
I created the first ever AIP meetup group in Boulder, CO to help people on restricted diets feel like they could gather and eat "normally" in their community
I created the Nourishment Framework™ after a head injury and digestive autoimmune diagnosis, when I realized I couldn’t heal my body with food alone
I spent years on super restricted diets and ended up with an unhealthy relationship to healthy eating. Now, eating feels easy because I am nourished beyond food
My current health quest is learning about lymph and all the ways it rules our body
I have a gift for giving you practical and impactful tips to upgrade your health but my superpower is helping you see what's been in the way of you making the right choices

As a Nourishment Coach, Brandi Mackenzie helps you identify the root cause patterns in both your health and habits that keep you stuck in an endless cycle. Brandi teaches that if food feels hard and you struggle to change your diet, you don’t have a problem with willpower, you have a problem with nourishment.
After a decade with debilitating digestive conditions, Brandi began searching for her own solutions when the diet changes, supplements and treatments her practitioners were advising weren’t enough. That journey showed her that true nourishment was about more than food. Whether you’re trying to restore your digestive health, have more energy, or feel more connected to your body, Brandi’s proven framework will transform your relationship to food, and your health.
