I have been on an amazing journey. I wanted to be able to provide the best nutrition for my family. I knew about eating fresh foods and preparing them simply for the best results. But that was not enough.
I started by taking a nutrition class at a local community college. It was a start but many parts of it didn’t make sense to me. All they spoke of was the Canada Food Guide and I knew it was bull sh*t. There had to be more.
Then I became pregnant and my interest became a mission! How could I be sure I was getting the best nutrition I needed for my body and a healthy baby. I switched to organic and got serious. But I needed to learn more.
I had a beautiful baby girl and while on my maternity leave I enrolled in a Registered Holistic Nutrition program full-time. Now that was serious. And as my husband would say “that was the beginning of the real crazy”. Yes – a newborn baby and full-time school – that was crazy.
I survived – my family flourished and my passion for holistic food continues to grow and evolve as I learn more every day. I finished the program – and I have completely changed the way my family eats. And we love it!
Along the way I learned my daughter has a severe (read anaphylactic) allergy to peanuts. That sure changes your life! No restaurants, no kids parties, no sleep overs at other kid’s homes, no Halloween trick or treating and the restrictions continue. But we will get through this with our nutrition plans.
I hope you find my website and blog both interesting and helpful. I hope you will join me on my journey of discovering real food and healthy eating. I am willing to help you with questions and concerns. Please contact me if I can help you with your concerns. I look forward to sharing my adventures (and perhaps mishaps) along the way to better health for you and your family.
