Hey! I am glad you made it here! I am basically a "fine dining foodie" trapped in a nutritionally-minded body.
Some of my cooking background includes 20 years of experience in fine dining and catering food operations as a certified chef. I have previously owned and operated a multi-location catering/cafe business and taught many amazing students in college culinary programs. In addition, I am a certified personal trainer and have competed in regional and provincial fitness competitions. I am a self-professed, non-denominational fitness devotee. Do what moves you to sweat. Then repeat.
During my time as a chef, I realized that there is a serious need for "real food". Nutrition that is accessible for everyone to become the best version of themselves.
Discovering that I am Celiac, lactose, and lectin intolerant, I struggled to find food on the go that was both healthy and allergy-free.
This business was born out of the need to help other working families (just like mine) that want to eat healthy whole food while managing their fast-paced weeks. We need to face the fact that we cannot always be the full time working professional/student, full-time cook, full-time mom/dad/guardian and still maintain a sense of balance.
In addition, I believe practical nutritional education is a huge factor in assisting families to eat healthy every day, not just in "diet mode". In addition to education at The Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, I am a life-long learner of people, earning my BSW - Bachelor of Social Work at Trent University. Our minds are powerful tools, and when we are able to unlock that power, we can achieve our nutrition goals.
