Letter from the FounderSTEFANIE SACKSMS, CNS, CDN
Welcome to WTFork, the no B.S. roadmap to healthier choices born out of my book, What The Fork Are You Eating!
Having listened to your needs, we’ve created this unique roadmap— the 3R’s —that connects you to food, cooking, and nourishment in a very accessible way. Because wherever you are on your journey, and whatever your reasons for seeking guidance, you deserve a gentle and intelligent path to feeling and being your healthiest. Isn’t that what we are all seeking?
My connection to what and how we eat began in the 1980’s when I was sick and tired of being ill and having doctors repeatedly serve up drugs as a solution. Likely you have heard this narrative before, although this was long before it was hip and cool for kids to eat healthfully. While my friends were drinking Coke out of Twizzler straws, I was reading ingredient labels and asking where my chicken came from.
Although the “food freak” to many, changing what and how I ate dramatically changed my health allowing me to take control of my well being when no one had answers. After years of unknowns, I was finally diagnosed with Sjogren’s, an autoimmune disease, along with related complications, including a rare but manageable kidney disease. Chronic illness has shaped most of my life and as early as memory serves, using my pain for purpose became my mission.
WTFork aims to meet you where you are, offering opportunities to explore and experience your relationship with food and empowering you to be the healthiest version of yourself. I am living proof that nourishing choices matter! Yes, I have plenty of degrees, but over the years, my clients, students, readers, and two children have been my greatest teachers. Please learn and grow with me.
Humbled to be your guide!
With love + nourishment,
