Ok..Tell me. Does this sound familiar?

You've struggled with your weight for years, you've tried all the diets, and your doctor has told you to just eat less and workout more.

So you do. And you use Google to try and get your weight loss questions answered, which only leaves you even more confused and defeated.

The results?
❌ you're no closer to reaching your health goals
❌ you've gained more weight instead of losing it
❌ you feel ashamed and uncomfortable in your body

If you relate to this, know that you're not alone!

Let's try a new approach and ditch the whole thought of losing weight all together, instead focusing on things other than weight loss, like:

✅ eating a well balanced diet
✅listening to your hunger and fullness cues
✅moving your body in ways that feel good to you
✅improving your relationship with food

I once had a client tell me that she didn't realize how much diet culture had affected her life.

Now she's able to find healthy balance in her life that doesn't include weight loss goals!

So what are you waiting for?

You deserve to ditch dieting, have more energy, and finally feel good in your body!

And that’s exactly what I help busy moms with inside my 12 Week Nutrition Program for Moms!

Feeling like you’ll only have the time to work on yourself when your kids are older?

Throw this belief out the window, okay?!

You CAN and you SHOULD prioritize yourself NOW!

Just because you're a mom, doesn't mean you should always come last.

And if you're waiting for your kids to be older, or to have more time, or to do more research on your own, you'll never get started.

✨You deserve to start prioritizing yourself right now.

✨You deserve to ditch dieting and repair your relationship with food.

✨You deserve to have more energy.

✨And you absolutely deserve to feel your best!

Do you ever feel guilt or shame after eating something "bad"?

I have 🙋🏻‍♀️

It might be hard to wrap your head around, but there's language used everyday that is actually harming your relationship with food and making you feel this way.

Language such as:
"guilt-free"
"cheat day"
"treat yourself"
"good" and "bad" foods

These phrases:

1. Imply that you're making the "wrong" choice, or doing something "bad"

2. Reinforce a negative relationship with food

3. Cause you to ignore your body's natural hunger and cravings

4. Reinforce obsessive and restrictive ways of eating

So how should you view food instead?

Acknowledge that:

✅ there are no "good" or "bad" foods. Some foods provide us with more nutrients, while others provide us with more pleasure. Remember that it's okay to have both

✅ a healthy relationship with food requires including ALL foods as part of a well balanced, nourishing diet

✅ your body knows what it needs. It's your job to listen to your hunger cues and supply your body with what it's telling you it needs

✅ there is no room for restrictive ways of eating if you want to have a healthy relationship with food

I had a hard time adjusting to this concept when I first started evaluating my relationship with food, and I've noticed that a lot of moms are stuck in this diet culture way of looking at food as well.

That's why I include a lesson on creating a healthy relationship with food inside my 12 Week Nutrition Program for Moms.

Because changing your relationship with food is where we have to start, in order to make real change!

So if this is something you need support with, I've got you!

03/15/2023

Hey mama, I know your battery is low!

But boosting your energy doesn't have to be hard!

Follow these 5 simple ways to boost your energy every single day:

1. Make Balanced Meals and Snacks

In order for energy to be high and STAY high, our meals and snacks needs to be balanced.

That means making sure they're balanced to create even, sustained absorption of blood sugar.

To make your meals and snacks balanced, make sure they have:
- carbohydrates/fibre
-fat
-protein

This could look like combining your coffee and muffin with some fruit and nuts on the side.

2. Eat When You're Hungry

One of the biggest mistakes I see moms making is not eating when they're hungry, which usually leads to not eating enough food.

Your body needs food for energy, so if you're not eating, your not going to have enough energy.

Listen to your hunger cues and eat when you're hungry.

3. Move Your Body

If you want more energy, you need to get moving, get your blood pumping, your heart beating, and your lungs breathing faster!

This increases circulation to bring more nutrients and more oxygen to the whole body, helping to boost energy!

4. Get Enough Sleep

I know its hard, mama, especially if your kids are little. But you really need to get at least 8 hours of sleep every night.

Like a phone battery that needs to charge for a certain amount of time to get to 100%, your body and brain also needs to rest for a certain amount of time to get to 100%.

No rest = no energy

5. Keep Your Stress in Check

When your body is stressed, it doesn't know the difference between running away from a bear and needing to meet a certain deadline or having too much on your plate.

To your body, stress is stress. and being in flight-or-fight mode all the time is exhausting and nutrient depleting.

Find ways to destress and you will have more energy.

✨IT'S HERE!✨

I am so excited to announce my new 12 Week Nutrition Program for Moms, designed to help moms ditch dieting, have more energy, and finally feel good in their body!

As a stay-at-home-mom of 2 for the past 10 years, I know how it feels to put yourself last and let your health and wellness suffer while trying to be the best mom you can be.

I also know how it feels to go at it alone, trying different diets and exercise routines only to end up right back where you started, not feeling any different about yourself or your body.

The thing is, we can't show up for our families as moms if we don't show up for ourselves first.

I created this nutrition program to help busy moms who may be struggling to reach their health goals take the confusion and overwhelm out of of their health and wellness journey and finally find a balance with food and their body.

By focusing on 3 main pillars (nutrition basics, relationship with food, and stress, movement, and sleep), the 12 Week Nutrition Program for Moms combines nutrition, lifestyle techniques, and health coaching to help busy moms:

✔️Have more energy throughout the day and stop struggling with mid-afternoon energy crashes

✔️Learn how to add more nutrient dense, whole foods to your current routine without having to obsess over calories or restrict food

✔️Feel confident in your food choices and ditch dieting for good

✔️Improve your relationship with food and your body so you can feel comfortable in your own skin

✔️Make yourself a priority so you can feel your best and show up for yourself and your family

As a special bonus, I am offering $200 off the program price for the next 2 clients who join!

Water...the thing we know we need to drink more of, but many of us don't.

Water is crucial for survival. In fact, up to 60% of the body is made up of water.

Water functions to:
- lubricate joints and moisten tissue
- regulate body temperature
- carry oxygen and nutrients throughout the body
- aid in waste removal, among many other things!

Without water, we become dehydrated which can lead to:
- mood changes and unclear thinking
-constipation
- headaches
among a plethora of other problems.

The amount of water we should drink each day depends on many factors, but overall, 9 glasses/day is ideal for women.

5 strategies you can use to ensure you're drinking enough water include:
1. using a clear container
2. measuring the container
3. warming up your water
4. being aware of what counts towards your daily intake
5. being mindful of some substances

How much water do you drink a day? Will you use some of these strategies to drink more?

Do you feel like you're on a diet, even when you're trying not to diet?

We've been programmed to feel good about eating certain foods, and to feel guilty about eating others.

This distinction, of making some foods better than others, can have us feeling guilty when we eat the "bad" foods.

It's time for that to stop. But it's easier said than done!

Here are 3 things to try:

1. Acknowledge Why
Start off by asking yourself "why" you feel guilty about certain foods. Have you been taught to feel this way? Do you feel like you SHOULD feel guilty? Uncovering these answers will help eliminate the guilt.

2. Reject Diet Culture
Diet culture is entrenched in all of us, and it's hard to let go of the pressures and expectations that it puts on us.
Remember that you eat food for YOU and YOUR body, not for anyone else.

3. Remove Labels and Rules
It's important to know that, regardless of what society tells us, there are no "good" or "bad" foods. Every food gives us something, from nourishment to pleasure. Embrace that, listen to your body, and honour your cravings.

Do you ever feel guilty for eating certain foods? Why do you think you do?

Interested in buying local but not sure what's in season here in BC? Let me help!

Buying local to your community has so many benefits including:
- supporting local farmers
- keeping your money in your community
- less environmental footprint
- consuming produce that is as freshly picked as possible

This last one is important to your health, because the more time that goes by from the time produce is picked to the time it is eaten, the more nutrients are lost.

Basically, the sooner you can eat something after it's been harvested, the better!

The fruits and veggies noted here are just a few items that are grown and available in BC in the winter months.

It may be the last thing you want to do when you're stressed, but moving your body can have a profound effect on stress levels!

Exercise, in any form, is an excellent stress reliever. It increases our endorphins (helping us to feel good), decreases negative effects of stress, and acts as “meditation in motion” by forcing us to concentrate on our movement and not on what is stressing us out.

Try to carve out time to move every day, during the holidays and all year round!

Think it’s impossible to enjoy the holidays and not ruin the progress you've made on your health journey?

I'm here to debunk that myth!

With a little planning and reimagination, you can enjoy all the foods you love and still feel great.

Here's how:

1. Choose Nutrient Dense Options
As always, plenty of plants is a good idea! Focus on building meals around whole grains and plenty of vegetables, and offer fruit alongside your yummy desserts. You can have both!

2. Be Mindful of What You Drink
Enjoy your favourite drinks and have plenty of water as well.

3. Eat Mindfully
With so much going on at mealtimes during the holidays, it's easy to lose track of how fast we're eating and how much we're eating. Focus on chewing your food to promote good digestion, and be mindful of your hunger and fullness cues.

4. Enjoy Your Food
Take the time to savour what you're eating and enjoy the meal with your family and friends. Don't feel guilty about eating things that are out of the ordinary for you. Embrace it and have fun.

5. Don't Restrict
I've said it before and I'll never stop saying it! When we follow food restriction by not allowing ourselves to eat what we want, it produces huge cravings and, often, binge eating. You won't lose control by allowing yourself to eat what you love, you'll lose control when you restrict them. So enjoy!

6. Think of Nonfood Ways to Celebrate
Many celebrations are focused solely on the meal. Try making things such as a walk after dinner, or family games and activities just as important as the food.

Let me know, will you implement some of these strategies this holiday season?

Hey moms, check out these tangible tips for boosting your meals and have more energy to get through the day!

Breakfast Example: whole grain toast with natural nut butter, h**p seeds, banana, and cinnamon

Lunch Example: using a store-bought salad mix, combine with cucumbers, tomatoes, artichokes, cubed up tofu or chickpeas, avocado, and your favourite dressing. Have some leftover quinoa or rice in the fridge? Heat it up to make a great whole grain addition.

Dinner Example: try making a creamy broccoli or pea alfredo pasta with your favourite salad on the side. Use chickpea pasta for lots of protein, and try this easy alfredo sauce:
1 cup cashews (that have been soaked for 15 mins in boiling water)
1.5 cups of water
1.5 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1 clove garlic
salt to taste
Mix in a blender until smooth. Add to cooked pasta.

11/23/2022

Hey moms, I know the health and wellness space can be confusing and stressful.

My philosophy with nutrition is to make it as simple and and easy-to-implement as possible.

So here are 5 ways to start improving your nutrition now:

1. Choose whole grain breads, pastas, and cereals
- refined grains are fine once in a while, and they do have some health benefits and cultural importance, but whole grains are much more nutrient dense
- you want to look for the words "whole grain" or "whole wheat" as one of the first two ingredients.

2. Eat plenty of dark leafy greens
- dark leafy greens are packed full of fibre, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients that support a plethora of chemical reactions in the body and are important for overall health
- the darker the colour, the more nutrients are present!
- some great choices include spinach, kale, bok choy, swiss chard, and collard greens
- have them in salad, stir fries, soups, casseroles, smoothies, and in just about anything else!

3. Incorporate more nuts and seeds
- nuts and seeds provide us with plenty of healthy fats needed for brain health, organ protection, to produce some hormones, to help us absorb certain vitamins, and to provide energy.
- they're also sources of protein, fibre, vitamins, and minerals.
- incorporate them into your diet by making your own trail mix, adding them to smoothies, sprinkling them on top of salads, and mixing them into oatmeal or yogurt

4. Drink plenty of water
- water is essential to life and too many of us don't drink enough!
- drinking 6-8 glasses per day allows the body to replenish what it uses in chemical reactions and what is excreted throughout the day
- to jazz up your water try adding lemon, cucumber, fruit, or mint
- herbal teas also count towards your daily water intake

5. Honour your cravings
- how often have you denied yourself something you love with the thought that you can only treat yourself on the weekend, and then gorge on it when it's finally "cheat day"?
- allowing yourself to have small amounts when you have cravings signals to your body that that these foods are always available, thus decreasing cravings and binge eating

Remember that was matters most is what you do most of the time, not some of the time.

Making the effort to make small changes in your meals can have a big impact over time!

Need a comforting meal loaded with plants? I’ve got you covered...

This Mexican bowl is one of my favourite recipes. I love that I can mix it up and add different ingredients depending on what I have on hand or what I'm feeling like.

But for your first time, start by:

1. Cook rice according to package directions
2. Chop yam into bite sized pieces, toss in desired seasonings, and roast for 40 mins at 400F
3. Drain and rinse beans, sautee with garlic until warm and fragrant
4. Cut tofu into bite-sized pieces and sautee until brown on most sides
5. To make guacamole, mash 2 avocados, 2 crushed garlic cloves, the juice of 1 lime, and a pinch of salt together.
6. Add all finished ingredients into a bowl. Mix it up and enjoy!

You could also:
- add cherry tomatoes on top
- throw in some frozen corn with the beans
- lay a bed of spinach down before adding everything else on top
- Add spices! Toss the yam and tofu in some garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and cumin

I grabbed this recipe from my FREEBIE, The Beginner's Guide to Eating More Plants.

Head on over to the link in my bio to grab your copy of the other recipes included in the meal plan!

Do you despise grocery shopping and thinking about what you're going to cook?

I hear you! I used to feel like all I thought about all day was what the next meal I had to make was going to be. But not anymore!

Since I started meal planning, I rarely have to think about the next meal, and only have to grocery shop once a week!

Here are my 5 easy steps to meal planning:

1. Plan Your Themes
Having a dinner theme for each day of the week makes it easier to decide what you're going to have for dinner each day. Create your themes based on what works best for your evening schedule.

Example Themes:
Monday - Casserole
Tuesday - Mexican
Wednesday - Soup & Sandwich
Thursday - Breakfast
Friday - Pasta

Keep your themes the same every week but switch up your recipes!

2. Choose Your Meals
Now that you have your themes in place, make a list of your favourite recipes, or keep them somewhere handy, and refer back to them each time you do your meal planning.

Having your recipes/ideas organized makes the meal planning process faster.

3. List Your Ingredients
Once you've decided what you're making for dinner, start writing a list of the ingredients you'll need to buy for each recipe.

Don't forget to add what you'll need for breakfast and lunches during the week as well.

4. Write Your Grocery List
Now that your ingredient list is complete, you can write your grocery list.

Think about the path you take through the grocery store and write your list in that order to avoid having to walk back and forth through the store multiple times.

5. Shop for Your Food
Now that your ingredient list is complete, you can write your grocery list.

I have to be honest that sometimes I just don't want to meal plan. But I do, every week, without fail, because it makes the week run so much smoother and keeps my brain just a little less full.

Let me know in the comments, do you already meal plan?

If so, what does your routine look like? I'd love to know!

If not, will you try it out?!

11/08/2022

Have you ever considered meal planning?

Those who know me know that I'm a planner, so meal planning came super naturally to me!

I know that's not the case for everyone, but hear me out!

Here are 4 Reasons to Meal Plan

1. Saves Time
Meal planning allows you to grocery shop once a week, and makes that trip super quick because you know exactly what you need to buy. It also saves you time before meals because you'll already know what you're going to cook!

2. Saves Money
Because you'll only be going to the grocery store once a week, and know exactly what you need to buy, meal planning decreases the likelihood of spending extra money on random impulse buys.

3. Healthier Choices
With less impulse buys and food planned in advance, it's easier to ensure that healthy choices are always available in your fridge and pantry.

4. Less Food Waste
Because you only buy what you need when you meal plan, you're less likely to have food sitting in your fridge uneaten and ending up in your compost bin, resulting in less overall food waste.

I honestly can't think of any cons when it comes to meal planning, other than the effort it takes to actually do it. But it saves you so much more time and effort in the long run!

Do you meal plan?
What’s holding you back from doing so?

After months of tinkering, I finally hit "publish" on my website!

I could play around with it forever, getting it just right. But if I did that I knew I'd never get it up and running.

I wanted to have blog posts ready to go, but I keep getting sidetracked with other tasks and then the website gets pushed to the side.

So here she is! I hope it's clear how I can help you and I hope it brings you value.

Maybe I'll have someone do my website for me one day, but for now I created it myself using some helpful techniques from my business course by .ca

And of course I have to shout out my cousin and photographer Jesse at for doing an amazing job on my photos!

🥂Here's to my first time saying this.....check out the link in my bio 😉

Okay ladies, I know Halloween can be hard. Your house is either filled with candy for trick-or-treaters, or your kids are going to bring a ton home tonight, or both!

Diet culture tells us we don't have any self control if we indulge in candy. We're supposed to deprive ourselves of it all year and not have any in the house, and then we're not supposed to eat it at Halloween when we finally do have it in the house?

It doesn't stop there, because of course we're going to eat some. Of course we are! It tastes so good! But because we're not allowed to have it all year, we binge and end up eating "too much."

Uh-oh, time to feel guilty now. Better workout extra hard this week to make up for it, maybe eat a little less during the day.

Does this sound familiar?

Well, as a nutritionist, I'm giving you permission to stop this endless cycle. I'm giving you permission to eat the damn Halloween candy! And the Christmas candy, and the Easter candy! Please, enjoy the foods you love! Without guilt!

Your overall health is all about what you do most of the time. It's not going to harm your success, or your health, or make you take giant leaps backwards in your health journey if you have a bit of candy when you feel like it.

And when you start to let yourself be around these foods more often, you'll find you won't crave them so badly. You won't WANT to binge them. Because you know they'll be there tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day, if you feel like having them then. It's all about balance!

Don't listen to diet culture. You're not a horrible woman if you enjoy some Halloween candy tonight (or this week!). You're human. Please, do what makes you happy, regardless of what diet culture wants you to think 🍬

Let me know in the comments 👇🏻 have you refrained from enjoying Halloween candy because of diet culture in the past? Will you enjoy some tonight?! I know I will!
