Eating is about nourishment, culture, and celebration. Restrictive diets honor none of those. They leave one with low-energy, more appetite, and at risk for chronic diseases- not to mention disordered eating patterns. And if you’re an athlete, restrictive diets can seriously weaken performance. Satiate Nutrition strives to provide accurate, realistic, and fun nutrition, health, and wellness information. Satiate Nutrition values culinary experiences and believes they help drive better nutrition, connection to the Earth, and our overall health.
My nutrition coaching focuses on finding a healthy and sustainable lifestyle for you. Every single person needs an individualized approach in order to find optimal health, and every person has a different background and different needs.
Hayden James, the person who drives Satiate Nutrition, is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist based in Salt Lake City, Utah, a recent transplant from Tulsa, Oklahoma. As an avid runner and rock climber, Hayden’s nutritional passions lie in sports nutrition. She also loves yoga, and would like to tumble down ski slopes more frequently now that she’s living in Salt Lake City. Hayden emphasizes an all-foods-fit approach to nutrition, because she enjoys French fries as much as kale.
Hayden left her full-time gig in a busy pediatric & adult endocrinology clinic to spend the Summer 2019 living out of her Honda Element with her husband. They traveled the western part of the United States, rock climbing, hiking, and adventuring along the way, before settling down in SLC. Hayden also has experience working with youth athletes, having led a sports nutrition program for the Tulsa youth climbing team from Fall 2018 to Spring 2019.
