About

Hi! My name is Jessie Valentine and I’m a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and certified yoga instructor. I started Vitamin Valentine as a blog in 2013 as a way to document my experience as a student and to share delicious, original vegan recipes. Since then, Vitamin Valentine LLC has become my way of helping people nourish themselves with nutrition counseling– but you don’t need to be vegan or vegetarian to work with me.

My approach to food and wellness was formed as a result of my personal experiences, education, and through learning from others. I became a vegan at age 15, but I often struggled with fueling my body correctly. The more I learned about nutrition, the better I felt, and I hope to help you feel your best through plant-based eating.

I take an integrative approach to wellness and believe optimal health is achieved by honoring each person’s individual mind, body, and soul. To learn more about my food philosphy and how I can best help you achieve your health and nutrition goals, see my “work with me” page by clicking here or using the page tabs above.

Prior to going back to school to become a dietitian, I earned a bachelors degree in psychology from Hofstra University. I incorporate theories of cognitive behavioral therapy, learning behavior, mindfulness, acceptance and commitment therapy, and motivational interviewing in my counseling practice.

    Hi Jess, thanks for visiting https://vegiglow.com/ and liking my post. I too studied nutritional science, but sadly, didn’t pursue a degree in nutrition, although my passion is food and it’s wonderful byproduct of health & wellness. Best of luck to you in your studies.
