My name is Tayler Russell and welcome to Healthy Blueprint.
My passion for food and overall health began when I was a little girl struggling to be the right size. I was a competitive cheerleader from the time I was 7 until I graduated high school, wearing crop top uniforms, and being chunky wasn't an option. I remember my second or third year cheering after I had started to lean out after a growth spurt, and my dad told me he had a hard time finding me on the floor because he used to find me by my belly (insert face palm here). Once I got into high school I really kicked up my obsession to be fit and look the part. My goal was to cheer in college and in order to do that, I needed to get very lean. I am no small girl (maybe just in stature) but I have a very muscular build. So when I auditioned at a weight of 135, that was the thinnest I have been since middle school, and yet the unhealthiest when it came to my mindset about food ad health. When I didn't make the team, I decided to coach CrossFit during college. I found a true love for not only CrossFit, but coaching, helping, and inspiring people to be e better version of themselves. As I continued to study, I knew there was more to health than just exercising, but at the true foundation was food and nutrition. What I learned about nutrition in college unfortunately didn't make sense and I wanted to further my self-education of nutrition, but with a proper foundation. I decided to get my Nutritional Therapy Consultant certification. It was during this program I solidified the passion I have not only for food and properly fueling yourself, but what it truly takes to reach optimal health.
I have struggled with food sensitivities, adrenal fatigue, eating disorders, and the puzzle pieces are finally coming together.
