What A Nutrition Educator Eats


So I had this crazy idea for the blog and instead of chewing it over for a couple of months (I do this a lot!) I’m just going to go for it.

If this new series is totally, completely silly and you think my energy could be better spent sleeping in, let me know. I like sleep just as much as you do. But I love helping you more. So if this helps, tell me. And if it’s lame, also… tell me.

Here goes –


I’m a Nutrition Educator… and I’ve been keeping in real, whole and natural since 2007.


That’s 6 years of:

fresh meals (6,570 meals to be exact – if you count lunch and dinner).

figuring out what works for me.

working with a bazillion clients to learn what works for them.

learning what doesn’t work for me.

teaching myself how to eat on the go (because I seem to eat more meals in my car than at a table).

scouring for the healthiest stuff for lowest dollar.

I’ve been everywhere, man.

So here’s the deal: every Friday (until you tell me to stop) I’ll post a couple of pictures of my meals and snacks from the last 7 days. Nothing fancy.

My intention: is to give us new meal ideas, go-to quick snacks and IGNITE a conversation between all of us.

What this is NOT: This is not a documentation of all the things I ate in a given day. This is not a replacement of my daily recipe posts. Nothing has changed on the blog, a series has just been added.


Let’s inspire one another to eat healthy on a limited budget with limited time and multiple allergies, restrictions and sensitivities… kay?


Ready? (I’m kinda nervous…)

The Good Bean makes these incredible roasted chickpeas that make for a great snack. 1 serving has over 7 grams of protein, they’re not oily, and they’re super CRUNCHY.

I kick my sugar cravings to the curb by having a savory breakfast instead of a sweet one. Roasted butternut squash (can be made ahead of time and warmed up when you need it) is great with a pile of sauerkraut and a quick vegetable stir-fry of onions, mushrooms, spinach and leftover bison sausage.

We had a chicken stir-fry the night before. I pulled out the chicken and had it for snack with celery, carrots, a bit of Homemade Hummus and a crumbled up quinoa rice cake.

Balance is necessary for success in EVERY aspect of our lives. I treat myself… because that’s life. My sister and I went out for poutine at The Big Cheese. The fries were deep fried, the gravy was layered on thick, it was amazing (and it was gluten-free AND dairy-free to boot!)

Nutritional yeast on salad is one of my favorite things.

Green juice is necessary. Loads of calcium, magnesium and stress reducing goodness. I don’t go a day without it anymore. This is my favorite recipe of them all.

What A Holistic Nutritionist Eats

I ran out of time to pack a lunch so I went to Superstore and bought a package of organic greens and loaded it up with hard boiled eggs, mini carrots, snow peas and broccoli.

We took these Nori Sandwich Wraps with us for our Father’s Day picnic (along with a batch of Dad’s Famous Potato Salad)

Puffed amaranth sprinkled over top of a Super Woman Green Smoothie makes for a perfect mid-afternoon snack. It’s so loaded with protein you’ll be full for a very, very long time.

What A Holistic Nutritionist Eats

High protein snacks are where it’s at. I whipped up this omelet with eggs, a bit of leftover rotisserie chicken, onion and served alongside grainy mustard (as a veggie dip for my carrots and celery).

I wore cute shoes as I ate it, too.

Now it’s YOUR turn –

  1. I just heard of holistic nutrition. I would love to hear more. I googled and ran across you blog. Do you have a facebook page by chance.

  2. After being misdiagnosed at age 16 with a crazy rare disease called dermatomyositis and living on chemo for almost five years, I discovered I had a gluten intolerance and this alone was the cause of ALL my symptoms (severe muscle pain, skin rashes, inability to walk, swallow, ulcers in my throat, etc.)After going gluten-free I was able to go off all my medication and today, nearly four years later, I remain symptom-free. Today I am gluten-free/dairy-free/GMO free and I have found that this works very well for me. I also eat organic with lots of healthy fats and I only eat meat if I know who killed the animal (aka my brother who kills deer) and I only eat eggs from local farms. I have not yet kicked the refined sugar habit but I am getting there! Small steps, right? Thanks for sharing what works for you. This is what works for me.


  3. Thanks in part to your blog, I do feel like I’m taking care of my body again! I love so many of your recipes, and I’m feeling very inspired and committed!
