Diets don’t work, but eating real food does
Learning to cook can change your life
A scale’s best use is in the kitchen
In eating good fats and not counting calories
Having a few glasses of good wine is self-care
That a good workout can cure a tough day
Asking for (and accepting ) help is a sign of strength
Finding something you love to do outside of your kids is key to happiness as a mom
In the power of a good night’s sleep (it is possible!)
In listening to your body’s signs and signals
Being a good example is the best way to teach your kids healthy habits
Small thoughtful steps are the best way to reach your goals and create long-term healthy habits
Hi, I’m Julie Vincent. I’m a busy mama of two, certified Holistic Health Coach and yoga teacher based in Rowayton, CT. I love being a full-time mom, business owner and CEO of my house, but the journey to where I am now was a windy one.
Like a lot of you, I used to work in Corporate America. I loved the energy and social aspect of being in the business world, but constantly found myself in a state of overwhelm and burnout. I found myself indulging in unhealthy food and drinks, watching too much TV and constantly complaining about how I wish things were different. After gaining weight, feeling lethargic and anxious (only being in my mid-twenties), I reached a tipping point and became honest with myself about the need to shift my lifestyle and make some big changes.
I started practicing yoga for stress relief, and ended up feeling very connected to its teachings spiritually. I became a dedicated practitioner and took the next step to become a yoga teacher (RYT 200) in 2014. Teacher training had such a profound effect on my life – fueling my passion for healthy eating, movement and self-care – that I decided to change careers and dive deep into the wellness world.
I successfully transitioned to a corporate wellness role and built a global consulting firm’s wellness program from the ground up. After my son was born, I found myself wanting to be present more with him, so I finally left Corporate and became a stay-at-home mom and soon after moved to the burbs. My new role was certainly keeping me busy, but my passion for sharing my knowledge and helping others fueled my decision to go back to school to become a certified health coach at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN), while I was pregnant with my daughter. I graduated the day before she was born!
the busy mama myth
Most moms feel as though there aren’t enough hours in the day - we spend our time doing things we don’t really want to do, yet we feel we should (think never-ending to-do lists, insane birthday party planning and always entertaining our kids). We think being busy and productive and super involved makes us a better mom. But the truth is, we are exhausted, and are sometimes holding it all together by a thread.
If you know you want your life to be balanced and healthy, you need to find ways to make things manageable and open space for wellness and fun, while still running the show. All your kids want is YOU. So, be the best you, you can be!

I’ll review your fridge and pantry and we’ll discuss meal plan organization and tips. I’ll leave behind personalized recipes just for you and I’ll follow up with specific next steps and custom recommendations for better nutrition habits that will help you meet your goals. And, if you need additional support, there is an option to add-on ongoing one-on-one or accountability coaching!
