Oh hi, I’m Haley!
and I want to help you your kids live their best lives!
Welcome to Our Plant-Based Home, I’m so excited you’re here!
My name is Haley Robinson, I’m a Family Nutrition Coach and I help moms improve their kids moods, behaviors, & selective eating with whole foods + supplements!
I’m also a mom with ADHD (diagnosed around the age of 10) that really struggled growing up in life and school. This has guided me to the work that I do today to help families incorperate more plants into their diet to help combat some of the hardships that come with ADHD or kids moods and behaviors in general.
A little more about me: I’m a very happy, positive, outgoing, and energetic person. I live in Chicago with my husband and daughter (with another on the way, yay!) just a short walk from Lake Michigan. We love to adventure outside, check out all the parks, and visit the Lake whenever possible. We enjoy family movie nights, crafting, and playing games. I love soul food.
I have food intolerances (wheat and dairy) and extremely sensitive skin which is what led me to a predominately plant-based diet and non-toxic lifestyle.
My favorite color is purple.I listen to a mix of soul, R&B, hip-hop, rap, gospel, and meditation music. I really enjoy yoga and being active in fun ways. I try to keep a clean and tody home as hard as it is with little ones running around.
My goal in life is to raise happy healthy kids and help other moms do the same.
What led me to start Our Plant-Based Home?
I wanted to create a place where moms can find evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle guidance to confidently transition their families toward a more predominatly plant-based diet and non-toxic lifestyle.
As a stay at home mom with a one year old I spent any minute of free time I had working toward these big goals I had for myself. I went back to school to get certified in plant-based nutrition and found my passion for sharing my knowledge and experience with other moms. I started with general plant-based nutrition but quickly realized my true passion was working with moms whose kids have ADHD or moms simply looking to improve their kids moods, attention/focus, and behaviors with whole foods and supplements before trying medication.
With my own personal experience with ADHD and now my experience in practice, I knew it the perfect focus for me. Now I get to do what I love while raising my babies, it’s truly a blessing!
My personal journey started in 2017.
I was a strict vegan for 6 years. I got my husband on board with a predominately plant-based diet, had a plant-based pregnancy (now 2) and helped many friends improve their children’s diet.
During my second pregnancy I started having intense cravings for protein rich foods like chicken and eggs. I had been feeling like I needed more protein in my diet for quite some time, and I honestly worried about my toddler getting enough nutrients, but couldn’t face the reality of what that meant.
It took some time. I had to undo and unlearn so much of what I thought was “healthy” in order to truly nourish my body and family. So little by little I tried. I added in some eggs and chicken, (not a fish person so still won’t do that) and wow did it make a difference. Within a week I knew that I had made the right decision.
Along my wellness journey I also learned the importance of living a non-toxic lifestlye.
What does that mean for us? Well with all of my allergies and sensitivities we focus on foods and products with clean ingredients. Non-scented safer choice soaps, detergents, shampoos, lotions, no candles, no air fresheners. We use homeopathic medications. Limit microwave usage. Cook with ceramic cookware. And that’s not even everything. Toys, learning materials, tv shows.
I try my hardest to make sure everything that comes into my home is non-toxic for physical and mental health and contains predominately plant-based ingredients. I’m kind of obsessed.
My goal for Our Plant-Based Home:
My goal is to provide a healthy home for my family and teach my kids how to make informed decisions to live a non-restrictive healthy lifestyle, whatever that looks like for them. And I hope to help you do the same. So far I have helped hundreds of families transform their lives and I hope yours is next!
I’ve spent the last 7 years studying plant-based nutrition and have had the pleasure of learning from some of the leading doctors, nutritionists, behavioral therapists, and organizations in the plant-based community. I received my Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate from eCornell and the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies.
