A Nutritionist Tips to Beat the Winter Blues

Years ago, when I didn’t understand about the connection between my mood and the foods I ate, I would struggle with the winter blues. By this time of the year, I would start to feel rather low energy. This affected my motivation to do things such as get out there, get fresh air, and socialize. As a result, I would spend my days going to work and then going home and crashing. With low energy and feeling unmotivated, I would put together a high-carb dinner and munch on chocolate almonds while watching TV (glad to report this was before the Netflix days :D). This was also the time when I struggled a lot with my weight. I wanted to lose weight but my habits were hindering my...

A Holistic Nutritionist’s Tips to Feel Your Best this Holiday Season

December can certainly be a fun month. All those parties and gatherings with friends and family, time off from work, trips and delicious meals are great way to get out of the routine. But for many of us, the holiday season can also create a lot of excess, especially with food.       I am a huge proponent of enjoying all that life has to offer in a balanced way, this means we need to break the all-or-nothing mentality and ditch deprivation, especially when it comes to food. I like to head into the holiday season with this same mentality.   In my personal and clinical experience as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, I notice that when we drop the excess vs. deprivation mindset, there is no need for extreme diets...

One Surprising Reason You May Be Sabotaging Your Own Weightloss

If you’re trying to lose weight, this piece of advice may sound counter-intuitive but weighing yourself constantly, in the hopes of keeping yourself committed to your plan, may be actually doing more harm than good in your weightloss journey. Many of us don’t realize that constantly weighing ourselves is creating an enormous amount of pressure and, as a result, increasing our stress levels.   If the only stress we had in our lives came from stepping on the scale, we may be able to handle it, but the reality is that in living our fast-paced, busy lives we are constantly under stress.   This is because in addition to “perceived” stress, there are other kinds that many of us may not be even aware of such as: physical, chemical,...

5 Easy Snacks to Curb Cravings and Balance Blood Sugar

If you struggle with strong cravings, especially late in the day, know that this is something that can be corrected by making some dietary changes. I often recommend clients to include 1 to 2 snacks a day to help them keep blood sugars stable throughout the day, and in turn, keep cravings in check. My clients also report having more energy when they follow this approach as well as being better able to manage their hunger, something very important for those on a weight loss journey (click here to learn more about how I finally lost- and kept off those extra 20 pounds!).    So here are my favorite 5 snacks to curb cravings and avoid overeating (especially at night): 1.    Sliced green apple with almond butter and true cinnamon:...

Fad Diets: Why They Only Offer Short-Lived Solutions

Aside from a description of their health concerns and goals, one of the most common things I hear as a Holistic Nutritionist, is that people are confused and overwhelmed with all the food advice circulating out there. Women will say to me: “I just don’t know what to eat anymore, I am so confused and overwhelmed”. I typically smile and nod in agreement. I get it, I’ve been there myself. It appears we have all forgotten how to eat to nourish our bodies.   It only takes a quick trip to your favourite social media platform or local bookstore to understand why we’ve become so confused around food. While the list of books that promote and teach balanced and sustainable approaches to eating is shrinking, the number of...
