I’m Karla, a wife, mom, and Holistic Health Coach. After gaining 82 pounds when I was pregnant with my daughter, I learned the importance of nutrition. On this new path, I began to explore how to better nourish myself and my family. As a Puerto Rican woman born and raised in Miami (now living in Brooklyn), I began to “flip” recipes. By using whole foods and higher-quality, delicious ingredients instead of unhealthy ones, I gained a healthier body weight and happier outlook on life.
Today, I’ve overcome the fear, anxiety and confusion around eating, and I’m committed to helping “flip” your relationship with food.
My weekly blog, OurFlipSideLife, helps you on this journey. I love sharing my expertise as a Holistic Health Coach to help other moms and families mend their unhealthy relationship with food and learn to implement healthier family-friendly alternatives. I offer one-on-one coaching sessions and host workshops in NYC, Miami and Puerto Rico.
One blog post’s viral success led me to launch Flipbox, an organic, gluten-free, dye-free and healthier version of a cake-in-a-box. Each kit includes an apron, mini spatula and the dry ingredients to create a cake and frosting. The kit allows parents to focus less on shopping and more on spending quality time with their kids and enjoying healthy foods together.
When I’m not flipping recipes or coaching clients, I co-lead B•Well Collective, a female collective dedicated to curating experiences that support and empower women. I believe in the importance and power of community. The relationships you choose to have in your life have a direct impact on your health, goals, and overall happiness. Surrounding yourself with people that fill you up and help you thrive is key to reaching our goals.
