Today we jump across the pond to England to meet up and talk with Gintare Balseviciute. Growing up in Lithuania, Gintare remembers always having access to “real” food – not the processed stuff that fills much of our grocery stores today. She was raised to cook from scratch with whole foods and ingredients. The fruits, vegetables and meat on her table all came from the local farmers; it was all “organic” by today’s definition.
When Gintare moved to London, she noticed that much of the food in the grocery store came in boxes and cans, or vacuum sealed with labels reading “fat-free”, “low-fat”, “reduced sugar”, etc. Not long after she began eating the foods that were supposed to be “healthy” for you, she began gaining weight, without realizing what she was doing wrong. Gintare understands that eating real food isn’t always convenient, that life gets busy, and that no one is perfect, including herself. She recognizes that eating healthier takes a little longer at first, but that there are ways to fit healthier eating habits into even the busiest of lifestyles.
In this podcast episode we unpack the importance of finding balance as a busy working woman, learning to shop right when at the grocery store and how to be creative with our cooking and snacks when living with Hypothyroidism.
“I have been there, and I have felt what you are feeling. Seemingly out of nowhere, my clothes started feeling tighter, and I saw the scale climbing. And no matter what I did to fight it, I couldn’t stop it. I was determined to find a way to get as close as possible to feeling the way I did in my 20s. What began with a determination to help myself feel better, turned into in-depth research and resulted in my earning my certification as a nutrition coach. I have taken what I have learned and what I have experienced and developed a guide, which is included in each of my wellness programs.” ~Gintare Your Certified Nutrition & Wellness Coach
