Why Food Is Not Your Problem

Why Food Is Not Your Problem

You struggle with eating healthy consistently or sticking to your diet. You feel like you’re always failing and just need to try harder. You don’t understand why you just can’t get your shit together and stick to your freakin eating plan. You think sticking to a diet is what will change your life because frankly when you lose weight you feel happier, you feel more comfortable in your body, you feel more outgoing and social. Truthfully though, food is not your problem and the reasons you think you feel better is all about mindset. Read More

Why Self-Care Is Not Enough

Why Self-Care Is Not Enough

Self-care is a hot topic these days and rightfully so.  Women are waking up to the importance of taking time for themselves and not putting others needs in front of their own, so that they can serve from a full cup.  There are many wonderful ways to incorporate self-care into your life including the usual Epsom salt baths, reading, yoga, getting a pedicure or massage.  These things are all great but they won’t be enough if you’re still stuck in negative thought patterns that are leading to undesirable actions and habits.  This is Why Self-Care Is Not Enough.

You Lose More Than Weight When You Go On A Diet

You Lose More Than Weight When You Go On A Diet

Diet culture tells us that when we lose weight we will therefore become happy, popular, successful and more. It shames us into thinking that we aren’t good enough and that our bodies are somehow wrong if they don’t fit societal ideals of the thin, lean body. Diet culture basically tells us that we’ll get everything we want in life if we just lose weight. This is a fallacy as diet’s not only don’t work but they won’t create the feelings and experiences we’re really hungry for.  The truth is, we lose far more than just weight when we go on a diet.

Chocolate Raspberry Balls

Chocolate Raspberry Balls

Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner I whipped up a Chocolate Raspberry Ball recipe.  If I’m being real though, I’d make these bad boys anytime because chocolate is good all year round. 😉  I used my favourite dark chocolate to coat the raspberry filling, which allows these to stand up to room temperature.   Read More

What Is Intuitive Eating?

What Is Intuitive Eating

When you decide you want to break free from the diet cycle, stop restricting, stop binge or emotional eating, it’s time to try something different. It’s time to step away from counting, tracking and weighing. It’s time to step away from meal plans and learn to listen to your body and eat intuitively. This can be scary, as it requires releasing control and learning to trust your body. Read More

Why I Stopped Giving My Clients Meal Plans

Why I Stopped Giving My Client's Meal Plans

When you become a certified holistic nutrition consultant one of the things you’re taught to do is create meal plans for clients.   It never has to be something set in stone and can be given as an example of what they can eat, which is how I started. The truth is I hated creating meal plans and it never felt good to tell people what to eat.  It felt off for me because it didn’t align with my beliefs and values. Read More
