My name is Jennifer Mendell and I am passionate about healthy living through nutrition and lifestyle.
A little about my background…
I was diagnosed with MS in August 2011. By 2015 I was tired of the battling the massive fatigue, digestive issues, and frankly laundry list of symptoms! I was tired of the side effects of the medication I was taking and curious about the much-touted transformative powers of diet and lifestyle. Over the last few years, I have radically altered my diet; eschewing the standard American diet for a nutrient dense anti-inflammatory way of eating that is feeding my body at a cellular level. My desire to help others in their journey toward health has led me to become a Nutritional Therapy Consultant through the Nutritional Therapy Association (NTA).
From the About page on NTA’s website, the following excerpt illustrates both their philosophy and mine:
“The NTA’s philosophy centers on the idea that real health can be achieved through a holistic and individualized approach to nutrition and lifestyle. Our mission is to deliver a science-based education that fosters a community of confident holistic nutrition professionals who harness the power of real food and empower people to reconnect with the innate wisdom and unique needs of their bodies, thereby supporting lasting wellness.
We believe that many of modern society’s health problems result from weaknesses in the body’s physiological foundations brought on by poor nutrition. We are dedicated to helping healthcare professionals and individuals reverse the negative effects of the modern diet through nutritional therapy. Our foundational, holistic approach focuses on the importance of a properly prepared, nutrient-dense, whole food diet paired with a well-balanced lifestyle.”
To this end, I am now partnering with Hybrid Medical Solution, leading a proven 5-week group nutrition program called Restart which teaches people the importance of eating real foods, and has a 3-week sugar detox built in. It explores optimal digestion, how the body regulates blood sugar and the role and importance of nutrients including healthy fats.
Here is an idea of some of the amazing foods you can expect to eat on Restart:
INSTAPOT PULLED MEXICAN CHICKEN BOWL
ASIAN INSPIRED GRASS-FED BEEF STIR FRY
GRASS-FED MEATSAUCE WITH ZOODLES

Benefits participants have seen include:
What will I be eating in this 3 week real food detox?
We will be focusing on removing processed foods and sugar, and introducing REAL FOOD! What is real food? Food that comes from the earth or food that has a mom and dad (animal proteins). Think of removing most foods in a box or a bag. Please be aware that in order to optimize the benefits of this program, we will be incorporating animal proteins into the nutritional recommendations.
Is alcohol allowed in this 3 week real food detox?
No, there is no alcohol allowed in order to allow yourself the best opportunity to see how great you can feel !
What kind of support is there to maximize my success throughout the program?
Besides the support of the group who will be on the journey with you, when you enroll, you will receive a complimentary Restart food journal and all-compliant Restart cookbook. These resources will help you on your journey! There is also a private Facebook group you will be invited to, where the group members will be able to ask questions, share concerns and successes, recipes, etc.
How big are the groups?
We are limiting the size of the groups to 6-15 people. This will help keep the classes intimate and interactive!
PLEASE NOTE: The Restart program does not diagnose or treat disease, rather it is for anyone who wants to get back to eating the way our bodies were built to be nourished. Participants take away knowledge and skills to keep their journey’s going, and gain the support they need to be successful!
