Jennikatja


Hey there, 

I am Jenni, a mom of two, health coach, personal trainer, lecturer and nutrition adviser who is interested in being fit and living as healthy as possible. I help people to feel better and to live a healthier life. I work passionately because I know how a good diet and lifestyle changes can affect to the quality of your life. My interest in healthy food started after my first pregnancy as I noticed that I was suffering from constant cravings for candy and sugary treats. I was also getting heavy stomach symptoms from dairy and gluten. The change into better happened when I gave up wheat, sugar and dairy products. The change was enormous, as before I was consuming these products a lot. Instead of having these in my diet, I started to eat more fresh vegetables, clean and real food. I noticed a big change in my well being shortly after only a week. My thoughts were clearer, my skin brightened up and my stomach was no longer upset. I was feeling really energetic although I was living a hectic year with my newborn son.

I want to be a good example for my children, students and encourage others to feel better. Investing in your health is always a good investment! My own experiences with diet and exercise lead me to personal trainer studies and later I specialized in nutrition (Advanced studies in Nutrition Science, Fitness Nutrition Specialist). Currently I am continuing my Nutrition studies in the university and corporate level. 

I have my own health coach business  and during the daytime I work as a teacher.

In this blog I share my tips how to live a healthier life!

I'm glad that you're here ūüĎä 

Jennikatja
Hei, olen hyvinvointi- ja ravintovalmentaja Jennikatja. Autan ihmisiä voimaan paremmin ja elämään terveellisempää elämää. Teen työtä intohimoisesti, sillä tiedän miten hyvä ravinto vaikuttaa elämänlaatua parantavasti. Kiinnostukseni terveellistä ravintoa kasvoi kun raskauden jälkeen huomasin kärsiväni jatkuvasta makeanhimosta sekä vilja- ja maitotuotteet tuottivat suolistolleni oireita. Muutos parempaan tapahtui kun luovuin valkoisesta sokerista, vehnäjauhosta sekä maitotuotteista. Muutos oli suuri sillä ennen elin rahkalla ja maitoperäisilä proteiininlähteillä. Lisäksi rakastin ruisleipää sekä makeita herkkuja. Aloin panostamaan terveelliseen, aitoon ja puhtaaseen ruokaan sekä lisäsin kasvisten syöntiä. Huomasin muutoksen olossani jo muutaman viikon jälkeen. Ajatukseni ja ihoni kirkastuivat sekä mahani rauhoittui. Olin energisempi ja jaksoin vauva-arkea paremmin. Oivalsin sen, kuinka tärkeää on ensin huolehtia omasta hyvinvoinnista, jotta pystyy huolehtimaan muistakin paremmin. Hyvinvoiva äiti on parempi äiti!
Haluan olla hyvä esimerkki omille lapsilleni, oppilailleni ja innostaa muita voimaan paremmin. Panostaminen omaan terveyteen kannattaa aina! Oivallukseni hyvän ruokavalion ja liikkumisen yhteydestä ohjasi minua ensin Personal trainer opintoihin asuessamme ulkomailla ja myöhemmin erikoistuin ravitsemuspuoleen. Olen jatkanut kouluttautumistani ravitsemustieteiden parissa pääsääntöisesti yliopistossa, sillä uskon tieteellisen tiedon voimaan. Tällä hetkellä tavoitteenani on myös valmistua Ravitsemustieteen aineenopettajaksi ja ProHealthin FLT-ravintovalmentajaksi.

I Quit Drinking Coffee and it Changed My Life

The U.S.Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says about 80 percent of U.S. adults take some form of caffeine every day. Accordingly, coffee is one of the most commonly used ingredients in the world. But caffeine does so much more than just keeping you awake.It’s a central nervous system stimulant that affects your body in numerous ways. So, let's talk about this and why drinking coffee might not be good for for you. While there has been numerous studies about the benefits of coffee, such as it increases alertness , lowers the risk of depression and reduces the risk of brain diseases , it has also negative effects on sleep and anxiety and it can cause headaches, panic attacks, adrenal fatigue, loss of energy, it can deprive minerals and vitamins from your body (read more on here ) As I mentioned before( here ), I quit drinking coffee last spring.

Why Are Cola Drinks So Addictive?

Did you know that in Argentina people drink the most soft drinks in the world? Their annual consumption is 155 liters per capita.  Not far behind is number two, the USA with 154 liters per capita. Americans are one of the largest consumers of the soda drinks in the world because of their modern lifestyle and high incomes. As it is very common to drink colas or other soft drinks but I have heard many people saying that they cannot stop drinking them. I started to wonder what is it that makes drinking Coca-Cola so addictive? Is it the caffeine, sugar or the artificial sweeteners? Besides what's the harm in drinking Coca-Cola? Below I will examine these three issues. Caffeine content The caffeine content in a 330ml serving of regular (sugar) Coca-Cola is about 32 mg. Compared to a a mug of coffee which contains 100 mg of caffeine that is a bit less. According to the Coca-Cola company the caffeine in their drinks is not addictive. However, if you are really sensitive to caffein

5 Effective Weight Loss Drinks

When it comes to losing weight, there is a lot of different kinds of detox packages and weight loss drinks available. However, I would not recommend using these products because they only offer short term benefits if any benefits at all. Instead I encourage to use a weight loss method which is sustainable. Usually this is acquiring healthy eating and exercising habits for life. You can achieve this by following my Nutrition Programme . Surely different starter kits, such as detox kits and ready to eat soup diets may come in handy but eventually when you have lost some weight, you should opt for methods which offer permanent results. Therefore, in this post I will share with you 5 effective weight loss drink recipes. I would like to remind you that drinking these drinks are not your only diet.  On the contrary, these are recommended beside your healthy meals and these healthy drinks could replace your other sugary sodas and juices..Besides they are also healthy and delicious too.

How to Stay Young and Healthy

The other day I watched a really interesting BBC document about how to stay young and more specifically how to prevent dementia and Alzheimer's disease. As you get older your brains begin to shrink. As a result of this your cognitive skills diminish. How to prevent this? The key is to use your brains on a daily basis. More specifically scientists have discovered that learning a new language has the most efficient way to prevent dementia because learning will increase the size of your brain. According to these scientists other important ways to affect the size of your brain were reading exercising in general learning a new skill, such as playing guitar studying In the document researches investigated whether regular walks or ping poll plays had an effect on the brain tissue. The test groups walked or played ping poll for 2 hours per week. The results revealed that both test groups gained positive effects on their brain tissue because of their increased exercise. Mo

My Healthy Morning Routines

What kind of morning rituals do you have on the weekends? In this post I will share mine. I try to follow a consistent sleep schedule in which I try to go to bed at 10 pm at the latest on the weekends and wake up at 7.30 at the latest. Having said this, if I stay up later than 10 pm I don't stress about it. But if I have a "normal" weekend at home this is what I usually do..I have found a lot of positive things about waking up early. Previously I wrote about  how waking up early made me more productive  and  how to become a morning person . I encourage you to try this! After I have woken up, I drink a glass of room temperature water which I have left in my toilet the previous night. Then it's time to move my body. This part of my morning is the best part which encourages me to wake up early. My morning movements depend on how I feel in that morning. Sometimes I go for a short walk or run just to get some fresh air and wake up my body. In my opi
