Emma Ware is a certified nutritionist, clinical homeopath, and doctor of holistic nutrition. For twenty years, she’s coached people to reach their health, weight-loss, and happiness goals. Today, the majority of requests which she receives through her business, Common Sense Eating, center on weight loss, diabetes, cholesterol and blood pressure management.
“When you change these aspects of your health, you change and shift everything,” Emma says. “And in my approach to helping clients get there, the name of my business really says it all.”
Emma helps clients navigate the complex world of food choices. She offers consultations, gives presentations, shares recipes, and teaches people how and where to shop so they can take better control of their health, and ultimately, their lives.
“What I try to help people implement is a return to the basics,” she says. “I teach them how to get organized both in the kitchen, home, and their personal lives, so they can change their lifestyle and live a healthier one.”
As such, she encourages her clients to cook at least 50% of the time, and gives them the skills so they can do so. She also wrote a cookbook, Fast Wholesome Cooking, in 2016, and updated it for 2022 this year, as a guide.
“I wrote this book with the intention of helping people who had digestive problems,” she says. “Little did I know we’d be using it for losing weight and healthy eating in general.”
Emma describes the book as, “Sesame Street level” in terms of its difficulty rating for both comprehension and execution. And it covers all aspects of what you could encounter in a kitchen at any moment to help guide you fully on your healthy journey.
