Hey! I’m so glad you are here. My name is BriAnna and I’m the owner and dietitian behind Blue Nutrition. What’s Blue Nutrition? Well, it’s a medical nutrition therapy service where I use my degree in dietetics combined with the knowledge, experience, and skills to build individual health “blueprints”.
Everyone is unique. We all have specific needs depending on our lifestyle, health status, genetic disposition and more. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a plan that works for you? – not just another fad?! Each of my clients receive a personal nutrition & lifestyle blueprint to support healing, cut back on inflammation, and reduce stress to live a great life.
“Working with BriAnna has brought me much healing. I have lived with Microscopic Colitis for the past 5 years and have dealt with a myriad of problems. My bowel movements were very frequent and not healthy, I was lethargic, tired, and my skin was very dry and pale looking. I was short tempered with my husband and kids because I felt so bad most of the time. Almost immediately after working with BriAnna and implementing my personal BluePrint, I noticed a change in my bowel movements. She has given me great support and is always available to answer questions, brainstorm or troubleshoot different issues. BriAnna gave me meal planning ideas and looked beyond just the food & chemical sensitivity results. Her experience and knowledge have been SO helpful and something I would have never been able to do on my own. I highly recommend her!”
I’m not your typical dietitian.
My goal is to look at the whole person and create a special nutrition and well-being blueprint for each person I work with. While my main focus is on nutrition and the body, it’s very difficult to find a blueprint to wellness without a healthy mind or soul.
Where do we start?!
Blue Nutrition takes a Functional Medicine approach to finding the root causes of the main issue. This approach is looking at the big picture and diving into the details to see what is going on to cause the issues.
But first, we need the facts. To quote Saint Thomas Aquinas, “Where there is Humility, there is Wisdom.” It can be hard admitting what is going on, but once you do a path to healing can be found.
We are what we eat, right?!
Well, kind of. Literally, everything that goes into our mouths (or through our skin) has a chemical reaction that makes us who we are. For better or for worse.
Do you feel generally lousy (Malaise)? Possibly, like you are running on empty more frequent than not (fatigue)? Have you told yourself, “I’m getting old…” as you stand up (aches & pains). Or maybe, your workouts are not like they used to be…something is not right.
You don’t have to live this way!
First, it starts with what is put in the mouth! Everybody reacts a little differently to different foods. Therefore, as a dietitian, I need to find out what it is that’s causing the issues. Once I do that, I can create a blueprint (health plan) to get most of my clients feeling 50-75% better in 2 weeks.
My passion for Blue Nutrition is set firmly in the desire to help people feel better and live quality lives. But the spark of Blue Nutrition all started with my father’s Advanced Lung Cancer diagnosis.
When my family heard the news, we were shocked. Largely, because my dad had been fairly healthy. He was active, wasn’t a smoker, no extra medications, and rarely sick at all. But this shockwave to our family, changed me.
I had so many questions…
First, What caused this and why? These questions are rarely answered. But there are some “hints” to how cancer in general starts. Then, as a dietitian and his daughter “what can I do to help”?
This is where I went down the rabbit hole of being the best dietitian I could possibly be. Read the research. Seek out the best professionals. Listen to what the leading experts have to say. Pray.
A resounding theme of what I found was that inflammation is what creates chaos in our bodies. Inflammation is what sets our bodies off in a storm of issues leading the Chronic Disease.
What causes inflammation?
This is where Functional Nutrition comes into play. It’s really the art of finding the root cause and addressing it. Primarily, investigating with assessments and history forms. Followed by the potential for suggesting specific tests to see what exactly is going on. And finally, tackling the issues with diet and lifestyle changes.
Three of the most common causes of inflammation is from poor sleep, stress and diet.
Blue Nutrition is about finding the root causes of inflammation and creating a personalized blueprint to health . Once we address the root causes, most of my clients will see a 50-75% reduction in symptoms in 2 weeks!

Professional & Friendly
Blue Nutrition uses Practice Better as a safe and reliable Electronic Health Record. Not only will we be able to communicate through Practice Better, but you can schedule, pay, and receive documents in a secure site. You can also find thousands of food items & recipes for nutritional content.
Your time and attention is important to me. If you are reaching out to me, I know you need help --probably like yesterday (or last year). I don't want you to wait any longer! It is my priority to get back to you as soon as possible. It doesn't cost to reach out to me!
You are busy! Family, work, household duties, community activities, friend commitments, church, vacations… I totally get it! That’s why I am open to Early mornings, Evenings, Weekends and more to fit your busy schedule!
Blue Nutrition is a virtual practice. Ideally, it is face-to-face through an Electronic Health Record video conference. However, I know not everyone likes that. So a phone call can work. If you don’t want to talk, we can work through email or even text! –I get it, not everyone has the same preference!
They say I should try to “sell, sell, sell” my services. But really my mission is to help find a healing blueprint for you. That’s why I’m as straight forward and transparent as can be. If we are not a good fit, I understand! And I hope you do too. A recommendation or referal can be made for further services to another provider, if needed.
