I love food, I always have. As a child I always cleared my plate, never complained and often opted for seconds. My food choices and nutrition approach have most certainly changed over the years, but the constant remains that I love food. Cooking it, eating it and talking about it, you can always count me in.
I believe in real food first; eating fresh, whole foods, and cooking with real ingredients. I want food to taste good without making it complicated. My approach to food is simple, and I would never teach anything that I do not practice myself. I am a true believer in balance, in every sense of the word; I enjoy a good cup of coffee, the occasional glass of wine (or beer) and a good piece of chocolate. I do however believe that food is a fundamental key to our health and wellness, and that nothing replaces a good diet.
My approach to nutrition is sustainable; I want you to succeed and support you in creating a life you feel good about. No two people are the same and therefore no plan is the same. I consider the individual; your lifestyle, your likes and dislikes. True change is about taking small steps that you can maintain. There is no quick fix; it’s a journey, one that I am still on and constantly learning myself.
As a graduate of the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (R.H.N.) with top honours at the head of my class, I am trained to educate individuals and groups about the benefits and health impact of optimal nutrition. I work with my clients to identify and correct the nutritional root causes of illness, and work with whole foods and natural supplements to develop a plan that will help restore balance for the individual. Using my approach I can help clients address their health concerns including digestion, stress, anxiety, mental health, allergies, food sensitivities, headaches, acne, fatigue, weight-loss, specialty diets, sports nutrition, and more.
