This is a story of one of my most embarrassing moments on the road. And what it has to do with you making the decision to upgrade your nutrition. Once you’re tired of the diets, the frustration, the restriction, the details, the counting, the worry, the constant comparison, the judgment. Once you’re tired of the STRESS. Read on to learn what this classic tail-gating story (and it’s FANTASTIC plot twist) has to do with making changes in your nutrition.Read more
In labelling and structure we find that frustration, that lack of patience, that restriction that doesn’t feel good. (But we are so used to it, that we think it does feel good.) So we decide to try to get out of the diet loop. What tends to happen when we first try to get out of it is we are so trained to think in terms of restriction rather than nourishment. Food is not viewed as nourishment, its viewed as the enemy in diets. So we may swing the pendulum so far the other way in order to attempt balance. Anarchy. Here’s how intuitive eating can bring your anarchy to a great balance.
A dialogue I have had with quite a few clients in the last years. “If there’s no junk food in the house - I won’t eat it.” “If there’s __________(sugar, pastries, chips, pop etc) in front of me, I can’t help but overeat it.” “I can’t NOT eat sugar!” But take a deep look at these statements. None of them are actually real! These are all choices we make. Read this blog to find out how to step away from the belief that food controls you and you ‘can’t help’ but eat it when its around.Read more
Changing the way you eat is hard. Changing anything is hard. No one ever said that upgrading your life was going to be easy. As we change our diet, we need to allow for space to grow. As we evolve, things fall away and new things enter our horizons. We need to allow space for death.
In this blog I share the keys that you may need to let go of in order to get to the next level of wellness.Read more

When I started getting messages back from people, in response to messages from my account that I knew I did not send, it was a very eerie feeling. Cue Halloween music. One of my favourites stories from this haunting event was a response from one of my (now) clients to one of the photos she was sent. My most successful clients are fun, flexible, responsible, kind, non-judgmental and non-conforming.Read more
Values like balance, evolution and confidence are not nutrition problems. They are human problems. I love helping women evolve in their relationship with food & nutrition - from stress + shame to nourish & blossom. It takes work, time, dedication. But you can do it. Here are 7 ways….Read more
Most of my clients come to me because they have very similar problems. Simply put, food stresses them out. It's wearing out their energy. A lot of time we waffle on our nutrition decisions, or we make a decision because "I've already really messed it all up today" or "I think I'll just exercise more tomorrow to make up for this" or some other crazy mind game. Learn the ways to get more confidence in your nutrition, easily.
As a Holistic Nutritionist, I work with what I know which is food and how it works for your body. I'm not legally (morally, ethically, common knowledge-y?) allowed to diagnose or prescribe anything. But recently talking to a client, I realized something I could ethically and legally prescribe. Permission.Read more
Did you ever notice how the fruits and vegetables at your grocery store all kind of look the same?
Uniform. Perfect. All in a row... same color... same shape. "Ideal." But let's get real. When it comes to nutrition, looks don't really matter — it's what's on the inside that counts.

As one of the leaders in the wellness industry, we have a rare but crucial opportunity to reach people at their most vulnerable. Food is so personal, intimate and sometimes secretive in nature. As a nutritionist, we help people with one of the most personal things they can do: eat, and the the opportunity lies in exploring the literal aches and pains of the mind and body and how symptoms are connected to food. As a practitioner in the food movement, here's what I promise you...Read more
