Sustainable Nutrition for Lifelong Wellness®

Reframing nutrition so you can maintain a lifestyle

that supports your goals.

Dietitian services that will help you enjoy food and
create sustainable and practical habits.

Imagine how you’ll feel waking up, excited to get your day started and feeling grateful to nourish your body in the way that suits you best. Think of how you’ll feel knowing that you can keep up with your life and your priorities, enjoying movement if that feels good to you, eating foods that satisfy you, and being able to enjoy time for yourself; not being tied down by thoughts of guilt, apprehension, or rigid rules around food. That’s just one way I support my clients here at

Aterra Nutrition®.

The story behind Aterra Nutrition

Recently reinvented Aterra Nutrition® (formerly Down to Earth Nutrition) is the same dietitian practice that you have come to know and love. Through this rebrand, we knew we needed to keep the essence of the business tied to it's original name, as DTEN and Cristina herself are the epitome of down-to-earth.  "Aterra" is a play on words - Cristina's mom is from Sicily, and in her dialect "terra" means earth, and "a terra" means grounded. It seemed like a perfect fit to bring together what food and eating are truly about: nourishment, family, tradition, and culture.

"How to Eat Your Favorite Foods Without Guilt or Stress"

I highly recommend working with Cristina and the programs and counseling offered through Aterra [Down to Earth] Nutrition. Cristina's knowledge and passion for Intuitive Eating is very contagious, which sparked motivation in me to learn more. She offers a professional setting that is welcoming, supportive, and non-judgmental. By working with Cristina, I've learned to shed the diet-culture mentality. I've learned to be in-tune with my body and eat for nourishment and enjoyment! No more guilt. No more shoulds and shouldn'ts. Working with a dietitian like Cristina is the way to go if you are looking for a non-diet approach to wellness.
