Hi! I’m Kendall

 

Welcome to A Healthy Sense of Humor! A place, where I hope becomes a resource for laughter and better health.

I am a Chicago native with a penchant for good food, healthy fats, and great laughs. I am four weeks away from completing my Nutritional Therapy certification through the NTA and am a self-taught cook and comedienne. The latter of which is a never-ending battle of my knife skills. Yes, comedy can be that dangerous!

My hope is to find my voice on this platform and provide a respite for individuals looking for informative ideas and resources to allow them to discover an even better version of themselves. I strive for a gain in well-being; whether its through a few jokes or a handful of supplements. It is my belief that comedy and health are interchangeable; both can provide relief and what works for one may not work for another.

Thus, BIO INDIVIDUALITY plays a key role in my approach to health. (Pssst…you’ll hear this word a lot, probably best to click on that link if you’re curious).

I have been a fan of many diets, including raw vegan in the past and while I saw and felt its cleansing benefits, I, personally, was perpetually cold, constipated and hungry on this diet. Not only is that not optimal for day to day life, it’s not normal! I’ve also seen people thrive on this diet.

And that, my friends, is why I chose to study Nutritional Therapy to better understand how the body responds to various diets and food choices. Instead of studying each type of diet, Nutritional Therapy gets into how the body works and responds to various macro and micro nutrients. This makes it easier for me to explain why histamine-rich food just might not jive with your system, but works great for your roommate. Sorry Michael Star, there is no one-size-fits-most methodology.

I am so excited to see where this takes me! Follow along and see me mess up on Instagram and sign up for my monthly newsletter!

Cheers,

Kendall
