hey, I'm Chioma (Chee-oh-mah)

I'm a nutritionist and wellness coach who believes that healthy looks different on every body, and it's my job to help you discover what that looks like for you!

Welcome to Mindful Appetite! I’m so glad you are here, however you stumbled across my page. I am Nigerian American, born and raised in Union City, CA. I moved to Phoenix, Arizona which became my second home before recently moving to Kansas City, Missouri to continue my career in the professional soccer industry. I hold a bachelor’s degree in nutritional sciences, and love teaching people about mindful habits.

Before I became fascinated by the complexities of food and the body. Growing up, exercise was always the focus. I played soccer, volleyball and ran track competitively. I was fit and healthy, so I thought…But suffered from chronic allergies, fatigue, constant injuries, debilitating migraines, low self-esteem, and yo-yo dieting, well into my early years of college. I thought that was normal or the price to pay for being an athlete. It wasn’t until I discovered a large tumor in my breast (that was thankfully benign) that shifted my perspective on how everything from your food, to your thoughts, to your daily movement, can impact your health no matter your background. Food became my medicine, and in combination with mindful movements, mindful eating and and learning to love and respect the body God gave me, the symptoms started to go away.

Now I’m not saying what worked for me will work for you. But I believe healthy looks and feels different to everyone. The decisions we make every day about our food, mental health, and physical activity can alter our genetics and how we exist on this Earth. Mindful Appetite is a wellness platform where I will share information and tools to help you prioritize your wellness again. And hopefully encourage you to take action and ownership about your health so you can go on and inspire those around you. Because we thrive when we are well and work together! 

When I’m not testing out recipes or products, you can find me practicing my headstand and handstands, frequenting local coffee shops (black coffee is my jam), watching a soccer or tennis match, wine tasting, or people watching at your local park or museum.

Happy you’re here!
