Chickpeas & Collardreams is a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practice & Hub that emphasizes Real Foods [which includes Plant-based/Vegan & Omnivorous preferences]. The aim is “meeting people where they’re at” toward helping to dispel cycles of generational un-wellness. I enthusiastically welcome you to this site, which now gains you access to an array of  “Gems” in Gastric Traditional Wisdom to aide you along your Real Foods Journey. So stay tuned (more Blogs & Services to come)!  It is with gratitude that I am able to provide a space to our expanding community of Wellness Seekers (aka ~ CollarDreamers ~)

Greetings Collardreamers!

Feriel Amaana BCHN,NTP

My Professional Bio:

Born & raised in California, I reside in the San Francisco-Bay Area. Along with being a Nutri-therapy Practitioner in the expanding field of  Traditionally-informed, Holistic Wellness;  I’ve sat for the National Board Exam & obtained the active status of Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition (BCHN-Candidate) granted by the Holistic Nutrition Credentialing Board (HNCB). I’ve served in a range of roles to include, clinical support  for Dietetic Health-Nutritional Services & as Course Mentor for the Nutritional Therapy Association, WA, U.S.A.– lending support & professional guidance to the next round of  Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

I embrace that my story comes with a lot of layers & has led me into forming a unique “niche” within the field of Nutritional Therapy which merges *Culture, Food Justice & Holistic Wellness* —  it includes my extensive background in Social Reform, Higher Education, Crisis Mediation & Outreach Counseling, Functional Nutrition Studies and an ongoing obsession with Identity, Diaspora & Intersectional discourse! The aim is to expand inclusivity and honor the uniqueness of us all by celebrating it in Wellness & Healthcare settings, where it often gets devalued, contorted & overlooked.
