I started Honeydew You because I don’t want one. more. woman. wasting her life obsessing over her body. Too many of us are missing out on rich experiences and instead living life paralyzed because of fear around food and a strong dislike of our body.  Sadly, many dietitians accidentally (I think) feed into this restrictive lifestyle, promoting a “one size fits all” way of eating that does more harm than good. I don’t want that to be me.

I’ve been there, stuck in a realm of impossible food rules and trying to make my body look like a body I was never designed to have. We were all made differently, and trying to starve ourselves into an unattainable body size means spending our whole life trying to be someone else. I want women to find joy TODAY. No more yo-yo dieting, no more food rules, and no more shame.  This passion is what led me to create Honeydew You.

Hello and Welcome!

I’m Arielle – (yes, a redhead named Arielle). Being a Disney princess was always my backup plan if college didn’t work out. ;) I’m 24 years old and live near Sacramento, California with my husband and our kitten Rue.

I have other passions and hobbies as well, including re-decorating my home way too often, throwing parties, trying out every coffee shop within 50 miles of where I am, and anything outdoors. Because Honeydew You is where I share what I’m passionate about in life, these random topics pop up on here as well. One of the best things about intuitive eating is that it allows you to move past restriction and shame and instead find the space to engage in the things that give us life.

Currently, I am a Registered Dietitian at WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) where I help mommies have their best pregnancy and also help families to establish healthy eating behaviors in their children. I counsel on everything from breastfeeding to picky eating in toddlers. I also work with pregnant women who have Gestational Diabetes. Prenatal and infant nutrition has always been a passion of mine, so you’ll see sprinklings of those topics on here as well.

In this humble corner of the internet I hope you’ll find freedom, laughter, and community. I hope you’ll leave feeling lighter and inspired to take back your life. I can’t wait to get to know you. Cheers to doing YOU!
