Ricki McKenna, C.N. a.k.a. “Mchealthy”, is an Enlightened Certified Nutritionist with a passion for food – and people.
“My work is love in action”. My passion is sharing practical information, ideas, compassionate coaching for your health and ways to improve your life through ‘chewing your way to better health’- eating real food.
My specialty is in bringing information and practical useable applications to you: You get life-changing ideas and solutions to your health challenges; information that you can use in daily living as individuals – and groups – through live and tele-seminars, workshops, individual and group health coaching and counseling and keynote speaking.
Ricki’s style of leadership imparts a lightheartedness that invigorates the soul and body with fun and exuberance. As the CCQH Leadership Club’s resident nutritionist, she brings excitement and practical wisdom to the dining table of good foods.”

Mchealthymatters© and Practical Nutrition for Healthy Living were established in 1999. Since then my clients have received outstanding nutritional education and counseling and personalized service.
I am a licensed, Certified Nutritionist through the National Institute of Nutrition Education-American Health Science University, and one of the best-known nutritionists in the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado.
“Being a knowledge hound and ‘nutrition guru’, I’m constantly updating my education. I’m currently integrating Ayurveda into my practice, which combines proven healing traditions with modern scientific knowledge. It adds another powerful modality to help me help YOU reach your goals.”
For over 12 years, I’ve been researching nutrition and counseling people on how to optimize their health with food and conscious eating. I’ve been quoted in USA Today, and write informative nutrition articles for the Aspen Daily News, Aspen Times and The Sopris Sun.
