I grew up in a home where good food was a big deal. My mum was a creative and delicious cook (her mint cured salmon remains my favourite dish ever). She put an emphasis on healthy foods.
Packaged foods in our household were a no go – reserved for holidays and road trips only. My sister and I complained at the time but I am grateful now for the mindset of health she instilled. I knew what it was like to go out into the world well-nourished. With a healthy body and mind it felt I could accomplish anything!
I’m now the mom of two boys. I spent the years in between pursuing my love of food, fitness and writing. I studied kinesiology and personal training, worked in the food industry, got disillusioned, and went back to school for a graduate degree in journalism.
My own family has its share of health challenges (who doesn’t these days?). As mom, I controlled what we ate, so I tried alternative diets such as GAPS and SCD. I fermented, juiced, eschewed grains and dairy, threw out anything in a package and spent hours learning about alternative healing modalities.
The more I learned, the more things changed – for the better. Food is a major part of our healing journey but so is reducing the toxic load in our daily lives and using a tailored supplement regime to enhance the good health we now enjoy.
My goal is to share my knowledge and help others. Please get in touch if you are ready to empower yourself – I look forward to sharing the ride with you!
