“Food and nutrition is powerful. It gives us the opportunity to bring friends and family together and nourish our bodies and minds to perform at their optimal level. Sound nutrition is intricately linked with our vitality and happiness and allows us to live a quality life. My various working and life experiences as a dietitian have confirmed that to live you best life now, a healthy lifestyle is key. It is never too late to get started. The world of nutrition can be confusing and overwhelming with the research and nutrition advice constantly changing, food industries that don’t always have our best interest in mind, the constant stream of recycled fad diets, “nutrition experts” dispensing advice, family and friends that inadvertently sabotage our progress to a healthy life, and our personal barriers to making positive changes. Wherever you are at in your unique journey to a healthier you, I look forward to guiding you through it!”
