A Little About Me

My Nutrition Philosophy

My philosophy is that supporting people in choosing healthy eating habits and an active, positive lifestyle to optimize cardiovascular health and well-being is where it’s at!

Healthful eating is within everyone’s reach.  My mission is to give individuals the knowledge to improve their own heart health and overall wellness through a behavioral approach to meet their personal goals.  

I’ve helped support adults in both long-term and acute care settings for years.  And I’m devoted to sharing accurate, evidenced-based information while promoting a healthier “do-able” lifestyle.  My education and experience has taught me that addressing emotional and behavioral factors along with the nutritional aspect puts individuals in a position to lead a more balanced lifestyle. Thereby, providing a more permanent path to wellness. 

Through the information on this website, I am dedicated to showing, teaching and encouraging YOU how to make positive changes towards a heart healthy lifestyle and providing you with resources on how to prevent and even reverse heart diseases. 

Thank you so much for visiting and for your support!

Meet Kiran

Kiran Campbell

HI!  I’m Kiran.   My passion is working with and educating adults actively seeking ways to achieve a heart healthy nutrition lifestyle through changing the way they eat.  Although when I am not working, you can usually find me at home with my family or in the kitchen cooking, baking, or creating new recipes for YOU.  

Maintaining a healthy heart is personal for me. Heart disease runs in my family. My grandfather had it and my father had high cholesterol and blood pressure for most of his adult life. In recent years, my own blood cholesterol level was found to be borderline high.  Luckily, my other cholesterol levels (HDL, LDL, cholesterol to HDL ratio) do not indicate that I’m at high risk. 

But…PREVENTION IS KEY. And a cardioprotective lifestyle has a major impact on the amount of healthy years you have to live.   

On another noted, I married the love of my life about 3.5 years ago. A wonderful man, who just so happens to be a SERIOUS whitetail deer hunter. And for those who know my husband, when I say serious, you know that’s a major understatement. 

When we first dated (and even on occasion today), I’d often hear “where’s the meat?” For most people, a meal is not a meal if an animal source of protein is not the main entrée. He, like many others, was used to making meat the “star” of every meal. I hear it almost every day when speaking with patients as well.    

I understand that lifelong dietary habits can be difficult to change.   

With that said…a heart healthy diet does NOT require you to be meatless, vegan or vegetarian. I, myself, still eat animal protein but I also encourage and educate on the benefits of a more plant-based diet.   

A cardioprotective diet can be flavorful, fulfilling, AND provide your body with every nutrient it could possibly need- if you know how to do it.  

Encouraging clients to find what dietary changes they need and are willing to make is a rewarding challenge for me.  I enjoy my work to the fullest and am constantly learning how I can provide my clients with the support they need to keep them motivated.

If you are new to eating the heart healthy way, then I hope to show you just how easy and “do-able” this can be.  You have total control over what you choose to fuel your body with- so choose wisely.  I’m excited to show you how!
