Hi and welcome to Food Sharks!

I’m Debbie Vittas, the Founder and CEO of Food Sharks!
 
I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and have also spent two decades working in the marketing and advertising industry. I’m a mom of two great kids, one teenager and one pre-teen…lots of hormones in my house!

 

My passion for nutrition comes from my own journey with healing myself through food and from my strong desire to raise healthy, happy and food savvy children. 


Starting Food Sharks has been an extraordinary dream come true, and one of the greatest and most rewarding decisions I ever made, because now I have the privileged opportunity to teach kids the importance of good nutrition for a healthy mind and body. I am dedicated to educating and empowering kids to be their healthiest, most informed, best selves.

Debbie's Health Tip

Drinking large amounts of liquids during meals may interfere with digestion. Liquids dilute your stomach acids and digestive enzymes which makes it harder to breakdown food causing digestive upset.  It’s best to drink water or other liquids 20 minutes before you consume food and wait at least an hour after. Sipping small amounts of room temperature water during meals is also fine.

Manage your stress. Don’t eat when you're stressed as it is hard on your digestion. Exercise your mind as well as your body through morning meditation. Sit quietly for 20 minutes and clear your mind by repeating a chant or prayer that resonates with you. Keep good thoughts; speak good words; and follow with good actions.

Your mindset is just as important as what you

put on your plate.

She is committed to helping others live the best quality of life as possible and believes that food is medicine and if you give your body what it needs, it is profoundly self-healing.


 

Eat a portion of protein and healthful fats with each meal. Eating foods rich in protein and fat can increase energy, reduce cravings, and suppress appetite -  helping you to feel fuller longer, and stabilize blood sugar levels.
