Teresa L Yi, MS RDN CD

My name is Teresa, and I am one of the knowledgeable Registered Dietitian Nutritionists at Sensibly Sprouted. In my previous professional life, I worked in Corporate Communications. However, a diabetes diagnosis within my family brought about a profound change. It became the catalyst for redirecting my career towards the field of Nutrition and Dietetics. Through extensive research, learning, consultations with specialists, and participation in support groups with loved ones, I discovered the importance of an individualized and sustainable approach to a comprehensive health plan.

When confronted with challenges such as diabetes, food allergies and sensitivities, weight management, autoimmune diseases, or other medical conditions, remember that you are not alone. I have personally traversed a similar path, transforming uncertainty into empowered confidence. Together, we will make informed choices to enhance your health and quality of life. Let’s embark on this journey together!

The assurance of knowing which foods can nourish, heal, and restore your body, even when time is limited for preparing a “perfect” meal, is attainable for you. Through our collaboration, we will focus on your health by creating an individualized and sustainable plan that will enable you to integrate nutritious foods into your lifestyle. These nourishing choices will establish a foundation of balance for you and your body.

I will hold you accountable to your commitments, consistently providing the support you need when you need it most. Along the way, we may even share lighthearted moments. Above all, you will be in a space of respect, free from judgment, shame, or labels. Our collaboration will result in realistic, achievable solutions that address your immediate nutritional needs while supporting your long-term health goals. I eagerly anticipate our meeting and beginning this journey together!
