Holistic Nutritionist R.H.N.
Find ease & peace with food and your body 🙏 UnDiet method 💛
I am a Holistic Nutritionist and UnDiet Expert with an online private practice and I am on a mission to help women quit diets for life and find ease and peace with food and re-build their relationship with eating and their bodies.
My work is inspired and informed by my experience working with women in my private nutrition practice, my training as both a Nutritionist (R.H.N) and a Sociologist (MA), and my own ever-evolving relationship with food and my body.
After dieting almost half my life, I decided there had to be other ways to cultivate a healthy weight and a strong, vital body so I set myself on mission to figure it out. In this process, not only I transformed my own body and mindset around food, but also discovered my passion for natural nutrition, body movement, and above all, being a champion for other women who like myself, have hit “diet” bottom. In addition to coaching women in my private practice, my happy place is the dance floor where I can get out of my head and into my body.
What’s the first thing you think about when you’re making food?
Do you go for taste?
Whatever is easier/faster/cheaper/most convenient?
Are you thinking calories or macros?
Tell me in the comments 👇
Still one of my faves 😍
Rolled oats, peanut butter, mango, h**p seeds and coconut flakes
What’s your favorite breakfasts these days?
Am I right?
One of the best things we can do to decrease the frequency and intensity of our emotional eating episodes is to balance blood sugar levels. YES!
In case you're wondering, why? well is because when blood sugars are wonky you're much more likely to experinece strong craving, which are REALLY hard to resist when you are having a tough day and want to resource to food to make yourself feel better
How do you balance blood sugar levels? 🧐
Start by NOT skipping macros/food categories & instead, include all macronutrients at each meal
✅ A bit of protein (beans, legumes, eggs, tofu, fish, poultry, etc.)
✅ Some healthy fats (think olive oil, avocado, nuts, seeds, butter among others)
✅ And complex carbohydrates for the fiber kick (veggies including starchy ones such as sweet potatoes, quinoa, oatmeal, fruits, etc, etc. etc.)
Do you often miss or avoid any of these?
If you’re feeling a little heavy in your heart lately, know you’re not alone
There is so much going on in the world and it can certainly feel overwhelming
The last several years, I’ve been exploring and learning different ways to process my emotions rather than numbing them with food so I wanted to share them with you
I would like to remind you though, that food is always an option for coping and soothing, but as we know, food may be able to distract us from pain, but ultimately does not take it away. Especially, if you find yourself falling back into a cycle of guilt and self-shaming is important to discover other ways beyond food
These ways I’m sharing help me process my feelings and allow me to feel exactly as I often want to: calmer yet present
I believe every time we “check out” from pain, stress, boredom, overwhelm, we miss the chance to go deeper into the journey that is life and to experience it fully
I hope these practices help you too my friends:
🌼 A long walk outside
🌼 Deep breathing
🌼 Dancing to music that feels right in the moment
🌼 Starring out the window and welcoming stillness
🌼 Human connection
🌼 Writing & journaling
🌼 Hugs help a lot too :)
How about you, do you practice any of these?
The less you get yourself to a place of deprivation and starvation, the higher your chances to break the emotional overeating cycle. Of course, tuning out diet culture messages requires some ongoing action
Clean up your feed regularly by unfollowing and unsubscribing accounts that promote diet culture messaging and unrealistic body standards that trigger you to restrict/diet in the first place
If you’re not part of my private community “Master Your Emotional Eating”, you’re missing a lot of good things :)
For instance, my good friend and Fresh Air Educator Erica Love is joining me this coming Tuesday Feb 22nd for a live conversation about how body movement can help us cope during difficult times and strengthen our physical & mental health as well as our relationship with food and our bodies.

Is "believe in yourself" enough?
What would you do with your life if losing weight wasn’t your raison d'être?
I’m gonna get real for a sec here…
Many of us are so obsessed with our weight because if weight loss is not the all and all of our lives, we just don’t know what to do with ourselves…
But what if googling “how can I lose 10 pounds? We took our journal out, close our eyes, take 10 deep breaths and let our imagination run wild to the rhythm of this simple question:
“ALL I REALLY WANT IS…”
what would you find?
about 7 years ago I did this exact same exercise and I discovered something interesting…
As I looked into my list, I realized that weight-loss was not a pre-condition to fulfill my heart’s desires
And I discovered something else… fulfilling my heart’s true desires was: scary, it would require hard work and definitely gather up some courage to step outside my comfort zone
If you find yourself exhausted from your weight loss-centered life, may I suggest you take a moment to pause, you ask yourself “what would I do with my life if losing weight wasn’t the centre of it” and re-direct your energy and your strength to fulfilling your heart’s real desires
I believe our hearts are really wise, and they want to be heard and you may just surprise yourself in terms of what happens to your weight when you put your mind to cooperate with your heart
