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, plant-based foods and higher-quality 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 and Instagram @TheLatinaHealthCoach helps you on this journey. I love sharing my expertise as a Holistic Health Coach to help others mend their unhealthy relationship with food and learn to implement healthier more plant-based alternatives. I offer 1:1 coaching, group coaching, virtual cooking classes and host workshops in NYC, Miami and Puerto Rico. The enthusiastic response from followers led to my plant-based cookbook, Abuela’s Plant-Based Kitchen (Skyhorse Publishing a division of Simon & Schuster, April 2023).
When I’m not working with clients or testing new recipes, you’ll find me exploring new plant-based restaurants with my husband Joe and daughter Carolina.
Learn how you can flip your recipes and health!
