Welcome to The Rooted Nutritionist’s (not so secret) collection of recipes, science based nutrition articles & all things health and wellness!
We are so delighted to be ale to share some of our personal journey with you here.
The Rooted Nutritionist was formed and founded in 2017 by Kara June, a very proud mom to 3 tiny humans ranging from 1 year to 6 years old. She has over a decade of experience and education in Human Development, a lifetime of experience in the world of Special Needs and 7 years of experience in the world of Nutrition with a speciality in the dietary needs of children with Neuro-developmental Disorders (ADHD, Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder and beyond).
We know you can relate when we say that there is nothing a mom wouldn’t do to give the best life to possible to her children and that dedication alone has fueled Kara’s mission to serve all parents who strive to thrive in the area of nutrition and wellness!
Welcome! I wanted to personally introduce myself , I’m Kara June, the founder of The Rooted Nutritionist, and firstly I need you know how honored I am to be a part of this journey you’re on. Whatever has brought you to this exact place, at this exact moment, I believe was part of a divine plan and I am so thankful to have the opportunity to serve you in whichever way is most needed.
Having personally grown up beside a beautiful soul with Down Syndrome , my sweet (and spunky) older brother and lifelong best friend, Tad (short for Thaddeus but he’s thinks Tad has a better ring to it), I’ve been given a unique insight into the complicated, exhausting, fun loving world of Special Needs. Coupled with my own child who has lived his entire life with neuro-developmental disorders, my heart and soul are deeply intwined in serving families like ours.
The past 3 years of my life have been dedicated to expanding my formal education in Nutrition to continue healing my sons symptoms of Autism and Sensory Processing Disorder with nutrition as the foundation. Alongside him we each began to thrive and the necessity of prioritizing our food choices became more and more apparent as we each healed in our own ways.
With 10 years in the industry of Human Development and Nutrition, I specialize in helping busy, worn out moms redesign their family life with health as the foundation. I believe that no matter where you are in your health journey, having the determination to step forward into change is more than enough to make lasting, meaningful transformations.
My success with my son and my family launched me into the world of helping families like mine, and my heart is completely invested in bringing awareness to food and how to balance it in our busy, beautiful lives. What is most important to me is that we do this in a way that reduces stress, brings us together as families and helps us to reach our fullest potential.
I’ve debunked the modern day dietary theories that are leaving families depleted, deprived and miserable. My response to today’s failing diet cycle was to design a “busy mom friendly” system designed to establish healthy habits while decreasing stress and forging a positive relationship with food. You can do this, and you deserve a life that’s fulfilling in every way for you and your kids.
I can’t thank you enough for taking your precious time to spend here, I know how little time you have for yourself and I’m so honored to be meeting you here at this point in your journey. I hope you find true value here as you continue forward.
If you find that my methods and philosophies may be a good fit for you, consider booking a free consult with me. I give this away for free to help people better assess their situation to determine the next best steps, even if we don’t end up being a good fit to work together.
Hugs mama, you are so much stronger than you give yourself credit for.
Health and Happiness,
