About the Author

Patricia Bannan Author Bio

Let me start at the beginning… I know burnout! I’ve experience it firsthand and it’s exhausting, alienating, numbing, and downright sucks.

Even though I’m a registered dietitian nutritionist with more than 20 years of experience helping clients eat and feel their best, I fell hard into the burnout cycle. But I came out the other side. You can too!

Through a “back to basics” approach to food and a more balanced daily routine, I learned how to manifest more joy, self-love, and balance in my life than ever before.

I’ve collected those simple strategies in this book, along with my favorite delicious and healing recipes, and I’m so thrilled to share them with you!
