I want to get the messages worth reading out there!
I originally started this website to share recipes that I had created, kitchen tips, and to promote healthy eating behaviours. I soon realized that doing that wasn’t enough, I’ve since rebranded what was once Dietitianeats, have completed a Master of Public Policy from the School of Public Policy at the University of Calgary, and moved to Kingston, Ontario.
I want to improve the overall health and intake of Canadians by lessening the (over) consumption of unhealthy foods due to knowledge gaps, food environments, and the increasing exploitation of socially and economically vulnerable Canadians.
I don’t believe in the “eat this, not that.” attitude. I believe in a diet that allows you to discover new foods you can enjoy, challenge the way you prepare food, and provide adequate nourishment for the body in an affordable manner.
Your food (diet) should be affordable, achievable and acceptable. I believe the food you purchase should be affordable, you should know how to store and prepare it and you should enjoy eating it, thus making it acceptable. If your current diet (what you eat) doesn’t fit within the ‘triple A’ seeing a dietitian may be useful.
I’m happiest in the kitchen, travelling to try new foods, or being active. I love to be challenged and am constantly motivated to learn more. I enjoy playing on teams for sport and working with a team, my motto is “A team isn’t a team without synergy.”
