Hello sexy pants!
Yep, I’m talking to you.
I’m Moniqua Plante, don’t let the spelling scare you, it’s pronounced like Monica not Shaniqua. I’ll help you rock your body from the inside out. And look really good in your pants too.
A few things you should know about me:
I believe in getting real with food. Amazing health starts at home, in your kitchen. I believe in listening to your body, so you know what it really needs. I believe in living actively and taking real care of yourself. And I believe you deserve to live your healthiest, happiest, most kick ass life.
I’m a certified holistic health coach and I’ve had years of experience figuring out my own relationship with food and learning to let go of the negative self-talk. I’ve been a working actor and a fashion fit model for the last ten+ years, so I really do understand the pressure we feel to look a certain way or be a certain size. I know what it’s like to not feel sexy in my pants, or even good in my own skin. I’ve craved food, fought with it, tried every diet, calorie counted, cleansed & detoxed. My metabolism was slow, my digestion was slower.
Then came the ass kicking.
I got really sick. I had a type of food poisoning that went on for months. No joke. My doctors put me on three rounds of antibiotics and I just got sicker. It wasn’t until I started working with a holistic health practitioner that I was finally able to heal my body. And I did it with whole, real food.
I finally understood that food is not enemy. REAL FOOD is where it’s at! I learned to love food and how it makes me feel. My body found it’s happy weight, I had more energy, I was sleeping better and my skin was clear and bright. And I didn’t have to work for it. I still don’t. By loving my body on the inside, my body loves me back on the outside.
And I’m dedicated to help you do the same. Since then, I’ve graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and have helped so many women, and a few good men, get their groove on through real food and self care.
You see I’m a real food/real life expert, and I’m really good at getting you excited and keeping you motivated to take action, make sustainable adjustments and reach your health goals without stress, guilt or deprivation. I want you to have fun while doing it. With happy hour and chocolate.
I have been there and I’m excited to help you get from there to here. You will get real about food, your relationship to it, learn to love your body and what you put in it. What matters is how you feel, and I want you to feel healthy and happy from the inside out. And sexy in your pants too.
Real Food + Happy Body = Whole Life
Let’s get this party started.
I sought advice from Moniqua because I wanted to learn more about food. Specifically what is good for you and why, as well as what is not good for you and why. Additionally, I needed alternatives for those guilty pleasures that were contributing to my high cholesterol and excess weight. In my case, it was sugar and dairy. In the process, I learned a great deal about nutrition, the immune system, and why you need someone like Moniqua to keep you focused and motivated. I embraced The Plante Life and after 6 months, I lost weight without trying, my LDL's are down, HDL's are up, and my cholesterol has never been better! If you want some great advice on how to eat healthy, and feel better in the process, definitely give Moniqua a call.Dave M.Sunnyvale, CA
“Moniqua is so encouraging and her energy is contagious! She really listened to what was going on in my life, understood the demands of my lifestyle and gently guided me to develop healthier eating habits, one step at a time. I've learned to appreciate real food! After only a few weeks, I felt physically able to keep up with how I saw myself mentally – youthful and energetic. Age may be a number, but it doesn't have to feel like one!”MBSan Francisco, CA
"Moniqua’s passion for healthy living is infectious. She lives what she teaches and her caring nature shows through. You will embark on a partnership and experience transformation through a better understanding of what you are putting in your body. Everyone is different and Moniqua really listened and adapted a program that fit with my lifestyle. If you want to get healthy and have fun, Moniqua’s your girl!”SASan Francisco, CA
“Moniqua is a force of positivity and motivation. Not only is she a trove of resources, tips and well-researched information, but an intuitive and attentive guide, and cheerleader. Because she walks her talk, sessions with Moniqua are both comforting and encouraging - like getting a wellness roadmap from your best girlfriend.
In just a few sessions and beginning to put Moniqua’s recommendations into action, I immediately experienced shifts - better energy, sleep and I even dropped a few lb’s! Like so many women, I have always been up on latest and often contradictory health and wellness philosophies, books, blogs, etc. and have found many to contradict one another. It can be overwhelming and confusing to determine which path is best for you. Moniqua has helped cut through the morass and examines your lifestyle, current demands and goals to develop a customized and balanced approach to nourishing yourself from the inside out. Thanks Moniqua!”AFVenice, CA
