About the Speaker & Topic:
"The Cookie Crash" - strategies for creating healthier event menus
that keep your attendees energized and still satisfied.

Ulla Schindler is the founder of “The Mindful Plate” where she provides nutrition consulting and seminars on starting and sustaining a healthy lifestyle that frees her clients of draining diets so they can confidently shop, cook, and eat for a healthier body, mind, and planet.

She attributes her love for food to her parents who always encouraged her to try at least one bite, followed by a 20-yr career in the hotel & restaurant industry that took her from Germany to Atlanta, New York City, and Miami.

It wasn’t until her first pregnancy however that she ever questioned the food she was eating. The sudden amount of unsolicited dietary advice drove Ulla to do some research on her own and she quickly discovered that you shouldn’t believe everything you read on the internet.

By the time Ulla had her 2nd child she had learned more about food and diets than her husband could handle, so she listened to her daydreams and decided to pursue a career in the field of holistic nutrition. In 2016 Ulla graduated with honors from Bauman College as a nutrition consultant, and soon after launched “The Mindful Plate” to help frustrated dieters enjoy healthy eating in a way they never thought they could.

Ulla lives in Hollywood, Florida with her husband and two children, and their future dog. When she’s not teaching about leafy greens and butter, she can be found in her kitchen, with her kids at the grocery store, getting her yoga on, or out for a run.
