Lisa is an incredibly knowledgeable and truly authentic mama and nutritionist who delivers her message both in person and in her books, with passion and fact. Her non-judgemental, sincere, and kind-hearted candor make learning from her an absolute joy. She makes the nitty gritty of nutrition feel totally accessible and do-able. Very much appreciated from a busy mom of 2! I would highly recommend her services or ebooks to any mama / family, and I look forward to connecting with her again in the future.”

As a Naturopathic Doctor with a large and busy pediatric practice, I can tell you that food introduction is the single most important consideration for new parents. A developing gut and immature immune system benefit greatly from an approach that respects and honors a child’s development. I highly recommend Lisa from Bright Beginnings, and her eBook on Food Introductions for babies! The information is presented thoroughly, with attention to detail. Most importantly, it’s accessible, easy to understand and answers many of the common questions new parents struggle with. This is a life-long gift for your little one.“

Lisa! Your book has rescued me from the sea of ignorance! This is my first baby (6.5 months) and I knew nothing about how to introduce solid foods! We had given him rice cereal twice before I came across your book…. which is now a thing of the past! We started with a handful of the recipes in your books and he has happily taken them – in fact he has loved everything. We are so grateful! Your work and your information have had significant impact on our household!! Thank you again for your book….it was, I believe, divinely delivered to my hands exactly when I needed it!!”
