About the author

Hey! I’m Jana Sny­der. You could say I’m a food free­dom guru.

I teach and encour­age peo­ple (most­ly women) whose his­to­ry of try­ing to eat healthy looks like “try-fail, try-fail, try-fail.” I’ve been there! I’ve been research­ing and liv­ing out this top­ic for more than 10 years. And it lights up my day when I get to share the lessons I’ve learned about giv­ing myself grace — and good food.

Back when I was a web devel­op­er (my for­mer job), my clients often said, “You ask great ques­tions!” In that role, my job was to help peo­ple fig­ure out what they real­ly need­ed — which was almost always dif­fer­ent from what they thought they need­ed. My work now is sim­i­lar. I help women dis­cov­er what’s real­ly at the root of their stuck­ness.

I have spo­ken at Botan­i­ca Lun­cheon Lec­tures and the HopeNet Well­ness Con­fer­ence. I’m avail­able for speak­ing on top­ics relat­ed to:
— The con­nec­tion between food, dia­betes, and demen­tia.
— Wis­dom from the farm: why my grand­par­ents lifestyle was nat­u­ral­ly healthy
— More top­ics about food, health, and self care. Let’s talk!

When I’m not writ­ing or teach­ing, you can find me lunch­ing with a friend, scour­ing flea mar­kets for poten­tial redemp­tion sto­ries, and in my kitchen, doing dish­es. (Guess which one isn’t my favorite.)

Thanks for vis­it­ing! If you have any ques­tions or com­ments, please feel free to con­tact me.
