She will be contributing her health and wellbeing expertise to our recipes twice a month to provide you with more information on how food and spices can nourish your body. After overcoming a years-long battle with a debilitating eating disorder, Nikki devoted her life to helping others find balance, peace, and empowerment around their health.

A few words from Nikki:

"Hi! I’m Nikki Ostrower, Founder of NAO Wellness and Integrative Nutritionist... I found La Boite and as a Nutritionist, Mom, and Entrepreneur, I absolutely love the simplicity. In our busy lives, it’s so important to find simple, easy ways of cultivating healthy sustainable habits, and one of the best ways to do that is getting comfortable in the kitchen.

I wasn’t born a great cook! I had to get my hands dirty, but cooking is now something I look forward to, providing me nourishment and healing as I put love into the food I make for myself and my family. I also love the science of nutrition and using nature’s gift of food to nourish the mind, body, and spirit."

We are looking forward to working with Nikki and hearing her advice and expertise throughout the year!
