Thanks again, Mo, for your incredible insight on hidden sugar vehicles! You really have made me a more thoughtful consumer and new food label detective. – Julie M.
I learned that in each dish we can add a rainbow of color. In other words, it’s not only a questions of occupying healthy food, but of choosing a different variety in each serving. Thank you Maura (Mo) and Canterbury Business Center for this special time!
I enjoyed this webinar (Morselicious Summer Series Workshops) a lot because I learned that having a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to be boring, there’s a variety of food you can eat and it’s so important not to forget doing what you enjoy!! Thanks so much for your enthusiasm, Maura (Mo) and for sharing your experiences with us!
I made a batch of Morselicious Morsels yesterday and dropped off to a friend whom I’d been telling about these yummies. Ha! She ate them instead of dinner and more for breakfast 😋 She said most yummy gift she’s received in years!
Maura (Mo) has been my mentor-coach for many months. The changes I’ve seen and continue to see/feel within myself are unbelievable! She has guided me to reframe my thinking into a glass-half-full mindset while inspiring me to open my eyes and become more observant and curious about the world around me. Maura has enhanced my communication skills by encouraging me to use my voice, share my opinion and discover that I have an opinion which is worth expressing. She consistently creates a comfortable environment where I feel safe to be seen and heard while confronting the tough questions always leading to breakthroughs in my self-awareness journey. My self-esteem has grown leaps and bounds and continues to grow as I uncover, express, and accept my true self.
As a Health Coach, Mo has helped me find a better balance with my blood sugar levels. As a type one diabetic, she encourages me to try new clean whole foods, less processed. I’ve noticed a significant change in how I feel overall as I continue to make more mindful choices by incorporating Mo’s Morselicious tips. Thanks to her low-sugar and low-carb Morselicious creations, I’ve learned how to treat myself without feeling deprived. Her passion, energy, creativity, and care is inspiring, motivating, and infectious. Thank you, Maura, for supporting and encouraging my lifelong BLOOMING process.
When I reached out to Maura (Mo) for help I was so hooked on sugar, I never felt energetic or good and I was 10 pounds heavier than I am now. I am now lighter in multiple ways and more mindful of my food. I eat more “REAL” food and though I haven’t cut sugar completely out of my diet, I’m eating way less of it and being realistic in my goals. I feel more energy and have more skills in the kitchen to feed myself and my family. She was never critical of me during my process, she was always my cheerleader. I highly recommend spending time with her to get back on track for better self-care. Thanks so much, Mo!! – Karen Parks, Studio City, CA
Maura, a.k.a, Mo, the Morselist, is a one-of-a-kind nutritionist! I find her to be extremely knowledgeable about nutrition and anything to do with health! I have learned so much from our walk through the grocery store as well as our cooking lesson in my kitchen. I thought I knew what “healthy” meant but have learned to read food labels even more carefully and are that much more aware. I also am more comfortable in the kitchen and find myself able and excited to cook more meals since meeting with Maura! She has definitely enhanced mine and my family lives!

For a second year now, Maura “The Morselist” Knowles hashosted and provided a Nutrition workshop to many youth and mentors in our BBBSLA program.
