May 2021 Featured Chef Morgan Simon has always loved nutrition and interested in leading a holistic lifestyle. However, when she got pregnant with her son over five years ago, this desire deepened tenfold. She quickly learned how toxic many baby products were (even the ones touted as natural!) and how many dyes and additives were being put in food (even the ones marketed as healthy!). This ultimately led her to become a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. As an FNTP, Morgan works with women and children to help adopt a nutrient-dense, whole-food lifestyle and eliminate environmental toxins to live their best life possible. Outside of work, you can usually find her cooking up a storm in the kitchen, playing outside with her family, or with her nose in a good book!
