My Story, My Passion

Lexy Penney MS, RD, LDN is a registered and licensed dietitian nutritionist with a variety of health and wellness experience. She has worked at some of Boston’s top hospitals including Beth Israel Deaconness and St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center. Lexy graduated with her BS in Dietetics from the University of Connecticut. In 2013 she completed her Master’s coursework in Nutrition Education at Northeastern University. In her private practice she works on the preventative side of healthcare using food, nutrition and lifestyle to keep people healthy, happy and out of the hospital specializing in digestive health and whole person wellness.

Lexy has a strong passion for food and nutrition playing a seriously integral role in our health and well-being. She believes food can be used as medicine to keep us healthy, strong, and therefore happy. She strives to help a variety of clients achieve their nutrition and lifestyle goals. Lexy believes in a personal approach to health and well-being, not one size fits all. Through her own personal experience with SIBO, celiac, and IBS as well as a long time vegetarian, she knows what it’s like to heal the body with nutrition and lifestyle changes instead of another pill. 

Lexy completed her 200 hour registered yoga teacher certification from Radiant Yoga Boston. With her passion for nutrition and yoga, she is able to help clients adopt wellness practices incorporating them both.

My goal with Shanti Nutrition is to empower you to take back your health, whatever that means to you. Whether you want to eat healthier, follow a particular diet, or get to the bottom of your symptoms, I’m here for you. Empowerment in our health = healthier bodies = happier lives.

Namaste 🙂

In peace (Shanti) and health,
