Q & A: Sara Sullivan, Holistic Nutrition Guru


Health Coach and plant-based nutrition expert Sara Sullivan shares some favorite recipes and everyday ways to eat a healthy, vegetarian diet.

Holistic Health Counselor Sara Sullivan

Certified Nutritionist Sara Sullivan realized that when she started feeding her body with healthy food, her whole world changed. That is what led her to become a passionate educator, teaching others about the healing power of food. And that’s exactly why Vegetarian Times teamed up with her to create our new online course: 6 Weeks to Plant- Powered Weight Loss.

What is the best part of your job?

I love those moments when my clients have a break through. It’s the moment where healthy habits “click”, and they feel empowered, vibrant, and liberated.

How do you stick to healthful foods year round?

For me, eating healthy is a lifestyle. I make sure to get plenty of sleep, drink lots of water, and exercise daily. And I never go to a social event hungry.

What’s your best tip for saving money at the grocery store but still eating healthy?

For the best prices on produce, be sure to buy local and seasonal items, and take advantage of the bulk section for better deals on nuts, grains, spices, and dried fruit.

What’s one of your favorite recipes in your Plant-Powered Weight Loss Course?

My Almond Joy Bars (get recipe below).

What’s your best time-saving trick in the kitchen?

During the cooler months I use my crock pot to save time. There is nothing better than tossing together a few ingredients in the morning and then coming home from work to a house that smells delicious and a dinner that is all done!

What is your favorite ingredient to cook with?

I love sweet potatoes! Not only do they taste amazing they are very filling and loaded with nutrients. In addition, they work well in so many different ethnic dishes.
