HELLO and WELCOME to MY BEETING HEART! My name is Susan Pittard, I am a freelance photographer  living in New York City.

My passion for food, photography, nutrition, and cooking have inspired me to incorporate all of my favorite things into an educational and resourceful blog.  I received my certificate in holistic health coaching at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, based here in the "Big Apple".  

From a young age I enjoyed trying new foods and learning new recipes with my grandmother.  My desire to learn more about nutrition came after my father passed away from a heart attack at the young age of 62.  Until his abrupt death my father was the shining example of health on the outside.  He was a fit, friendly, and food conscious man. He was the neighbor that you would see running the same 3 mile route everyday. What no one could see was the inner damage, the plaque building up on his arteries.

Do you know that heart disease is the #1 killer of adults in the United States?!  Do you know that you can reverse the damage that currently exists inside you?!

Until I began to educate myself on the causes of cardiovascular disease I believed that I, too was genetically predisposed to head down the same path as my relatives.  Now I know that WE DO have a choice to ensure our lives will be free from chronic lifestyle diseases like, heart disease, type II diabetes, and high blood pressure. It's frustrating and confusing for a lot of people who aren't certain what is right for their individual nutritional needs & overall health.

The first essential step we must take is to eat quality, whole, plant-based foods.  WE DO have a choice to have optimal health and it starts with what we eat.  My goal is to educate and inform my clients with the most current and appropriate nutritional advice in order to intercept any bad habits and to begin the healing process.
