What Folks Have to Say about Working With Dahlia

Through working with Dahlia, I gained the tools I needed to create space for well-being in my life. The best aspect of Dahlia’s Live Deliciously program was her holistic approach to food and wellness. She expanded my knowledge of food (favorite discovery: sunchokes!), taught me the best ways to shop and store the makings of high-quality and inexpensive meals (result: now I always have on hand simple ingredients to make a healthy and delicious meal), and demonstrated building blocks for recipes that made the cooking process fun, creative, and easy (best building block recipe: lazy poached eggs). Throughout it all, Dahlia emphasized the emotional, spiritual, and physical aspects of well-being and how food plays an important role in our collective history and shared experiences.

I can’t believe how much I have grown in our time together! I feel so much more confident in creating a healthy lifestyle and find great motivation from your feedback and encouragement. Before working with you, I didn’t even create space for myself to drink hot tea in the morning or stay hydrated throughout the day. I brought the same peanut butter and jelly sandwich to work every day for lunch at best, and at worst bought a granola bar and a soda for lunch. Now, I plan ahead and have learned how to cook healthy but satisfying meals for myself that even others enjoy! The three most significant improvements are my confidence in the kitchen, healthier, efficient meal planning, and my relationship with food thanks to you and Live Deliciously programs. If anyone questions the value of your program, please have them email me. I would be happy to talk to them about it!

If you want to feel full from nutritional knowledge and technique then Live Deliciously is a must. You get to learn from Dahlia a nutritional guru, who breaks down nutrition, shopping, and meal prep for your every day professional person running from home to work with out an idea of how to fully live deliciously. I took away so much from these workshops and I was better prepared to know exactly  how to shop and plan ahead for meals! Thanks, Dahlia.

“Live Deliciously 101 changed my habits tremendously! I actually cook now…..& I make my beans from scratch which is easy & so much better tasting! After you introduced me to so many different greens, I now cook with them regularly! I recommend the course to everyone!

Working with Dahlia was not only transformative, but also fun and meaningful. I highly recommend it!’

-Ellie, Washington, DC

Live Deliciously 101 made a huge change in my eating /lifestyle practice, too! I now go to the grocery store and hear your words of wisdom as I traverse through the aisles. I buy nuts + grains in bulk and always have a leafy green in my fridge. I had the worst kitchen anxiety for awhile. Through this course I learned that you don’t have to be the greatest chef to make a healthy and nourishing meal. It might take some experimenting at first but it’s all worth it.

-Amber, Washington, DC

Working with you helped solidify my healthy eating & lifestyle practices. I now ENJOY cooking & eating healthy meals – no longer have food hoarding & envy tendencies.  I also have a regular spiritual & exercise practice.

To put it simply, Dahlia Nutrition & Wellness programs changed my life.  As an avid home cook I thought I knew about food and nutrition, but kept feeling like I was missing something. I worked out hard every day, but still didn’t feel as good as I wanted to.  Dahlia unlocked the door to my health and wellness.  Her detailed sessions allowed me to ask questions I have always wanted to know the answers to.  We were able to frankly and honestly discuss how my life and health were impacted by food.

I was blown away with simple, yet deeply meaningful discussions that opened my eyes to a new way of eating.  I finally understood!  Not only was Dahlia focused on helping me gain this knowledge, she helped me apply it in a practical way.  My grocery store trips were now more like field trips.  She challenged me to expand my mind, my palate and even my own cooking skills by introducing me to new things and re-introducing me to foods I thought I knew.  I immediately began to feel better.  I had more energy, it felt like a fog had been lifted from my brain, I was focused and even happier.  Dahlia showed me that food is life, and to have the best life, I needed to understand what I was eating and how it worked for me.

The personalized approach of her program was crucial to my success.  She evaluated my health and my needs in a detailed way and helped me map out a plan for success.  I even lost some excess weight without really even trying, which, as she taught me, is my body’s way of letting me know I am giving it what it needs.  Everyone should have the privilege of going through one of her programs and the best part is, she has a program that’s right for everyone.   I highly recommend Dahlia Nutrition & Wellness to anyone who wants to open up a whole new world of delicious healthiness.  It will change your life for the better, just like it changed mine.

I have been a client of Dahlia Shaaban’s for almost three years and she has truly helped me on my path toward physical and spiritual well-being.  Whether the treatment is holistic health coaching or Thai yoga therapy, Dahlia is compassionate, thoughtful and extremely professional.
Before meeting Dahlia, I worked non-stop, ate poorly and was very good at overlooking my personal health. Now, I have a greater knowledge of what a healthy lifestyle means for me and I am better armed to make informed, nutritious decisions.  Dahlia has seen me through a major career change, two serious surgeries and a painful romantic breakup.  She empowered me to care for myself holistically and stay balanced all while maintaining a very busy career.
I believe Dahlia has a true talent to help women learn how to love themselves and to acknowledge their self-worth while juggling life’s many challenges.

-Amy F, Washington, DC

I have struggled with conflating body image and self image every since I was a child. I was a shrinking violet not wanting anyone’s glance for too long. My broken confidence came from a place of not feeling comfortable in my own skin. I had tried crazy diets and work-out plans but quickly fell off the hamster wheel I was creating for myself. I eventually learned that to make a sustained change from deep consciousness, I need to be empowered to honor myself and put only the best whole foods in my body. Through God’s blessing, I found Dahlia. I quickly enrolled in her nutritional counseling course and private yoga classes and became instantly excited to work with someone who was so invested in my success. Dahlia is one of those shining people in our communities that should be lifted up and shared with everyone because her heart is pure, leading to a connection with her clients that is so genuine. She gave me permission to love and honor myself and gave me the tools to actually act on these now foundational core beliefs I carry. The goals I listed out at the beginning of the six month course of being more present in my body and being aware of what should be going in my body were all met. I cannot be more grateful to Dahlia.”

Live Deliciously holistic health coaching is not about weekly sessions, it is about transformation. The only way to transform your health and mind is to fully understand both the science and psychology behind the foods and exercise we consume or the choices we undertake. Dahlia understands this balance and took the time to understand the dynamics at play in both my personal and professional life, including how those dynamics impacted my health. As someone who has struggled with a holistic approach to my health while addressing autoimmune and kidney disease, the BellySatva program has changed my attitude, improved the needed balance in my life, and transformed my health for the better. I am grateful to Dahlia for her consistent and compassionate approach to empower me while guiding me through this transformative process.
