Carrie Bonfitto, NC
Health is uniquely personal. Only you have the power to access how you are feeling and make choices to improve your well-being. But what I know to be both personally and professionally true, is that sometimes we lose sensitivity to our bodies and can no longer accurately evaluate how we are really feeling.
For me, it took a formal diagnosis of Hashimoto’s Disease (a thyroid condition) to finally admit that I was exhausted. Once, I started getting the proper treatment and changing my diet to support my condition, I regained my vitality and renewed my standards for what feeling good meant to me.
Using a customized approach of science-backed holistic health therapies; targeted natural supplements; and physician-assisted laboratory testing; I have been successful in helping my clients restore their health, find wellness, and change their definition of what it means to feel healthy.
I consider your individual needs and biology to find solutions that are sustainable and practical. I enjoy working with other healthcare practitioners and am happy to consult with your doctor about any of my recommendations.
As both a board certified nutrition consultant and culinary instructor, I know the root of wellness is healthy eating. So as part of my services I share my knowledge of whole food selection, meal planning, and healthy recipes.
And for anyone desiring more guidance in the kitchen, I offer cooking lessons. You can schedule a private lesson with me or enroll in one of my classes at Los Angeles Valley College.

Carrie’s vast knowledge, patience and willingness to find solutions that work for me was/has been enormously helpful and comforting given my complex health issues. Having consistent, thorough and caring interaction with someone like Carrie – on both a personal and professional level – has made a world of difference in my approach to and attitude towards my health challenges.
I always thought that I had good eating habits, but after consulting with Carrie about my diet, she really made me think about the types of foods that I was consuming. She has provided me with a lot of education about nutrient rich meals, snacks, and beverages, and I am much more conscious of the food that I eat. We have recently expanded our family, and she has also provided great advice on the best nutrition for our infant. She is enthusiastic about her profession, customizes a diet to fit the person, and can back up her suggestions with evidence.
Working with Carrie has been a pleasure. I was a total newcomer to this world of better eating and nutrition, and naturally was a bit apprehensive at first. However, Carrie made this experience both enjoyable and educational. Her vast knowledge and guidance has allowed me to make better food choices which has resulted in feeling healthier, having fun in the kitchen and consistently losing 1-2 lbs per week for nearly 8 weeks now. I’m a satisfied client for sure.
After years searching on my own for effective strategies to address my unique diet needs, it was tremendously empowering to work with Carrie on a thoughtful and comprehensive nutrition plan. Her warm nature, impressive expertise, and dedication to sharing the most current dietary research, gave me the knowledge and confidence to positively redefine my health and improve my overall sense of well-being.
I feel empowered to just make one change at a time and don’t feel like I need to overhaul my family’s entire way of eating.
Since I started the class, I’m able (and brave enough) to cook for me and other people – and it gets way better every time. It’s fun for me to cook!
