I love creating nutrition messages that entertain and inspire others to explore plant-centred eating. Myth-busting is a must. Exploring trends, giving practical advice for getting dinner on the table and making nutrition research understandable is part of my nutritional DNA.
In addition to my cooking series, The Urban Vegetarian, I am a trusted media contributor to local and national outlets and have been featured in USA Today, The Globe and Mail, MindBodyGreen, Well + Good NYC, The Vancouver Sun, The Toronto Star, Chatelaine, Family Circle and FASHION magazines. I have appeared on Home and Family, The Marilyn Denis Show, E-Talk and The Social in addition to being a regular guest on Vancouver’s Breakfast Television, Global BC Weekend News and AM1150 Kelowna.
Beginning my career as a retail dietitian, I learned quickly that sharing trusted products with my audience is more helpful than providing vague nutritional guidelines so I enjoy working with healthy products. However, I believe strongly that if a product isn’t good enough for my family, I won’t share it with my clients.
I work exclusively with plant-based products with a preference for whole food options.
I have a preference for certified organic products, and non-GMO is a must.
As a registered dietitian, I can only work with supplements that have clinical evidence to support their use.
I have worked with many natural food companies, including Bio-K+ Probiotics, MegaFood Canada, Botanica Health, Nature’s Path, Earth’s Own Beverages and Planet Hemp Superfood.
If you have an amazing, nourishing product that meets these parameters, let’s chat about sharing it with my audience!
