I’m a nutritionist, author, chef and food photographer and good food has always been a huge part of my life. I grew up in the US in a family that was always cooking. Starting in my teens I struggled with hormonal balance and endometriosis for most of my adult life and it took me many years to figure out what type of “diet” was best for me and that there really is no one size fits all approach to what you should eat. While getting my BA from Hampshire College in Massachusetts, I fell in love with nutrition and developed my cooking skills through working in restaurants. Eventually moving to Canada, I became a Certified Nutritional Practitioner at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition and I now love assisting and empowering others to feel healthier and manage chronic health conditions by eating healthy food. I love food photography and you can find my photos on the Living Kitchen blog and social media platforms, as well as on Food Network Canada. My first cookbook, co-authored with Tamara, is published by Appetite by Random House and available January 2019. I also love getting out into nature as much as possible, practicing yoga, and hosting dinner parties with my partner Daniel.
I’m a nutritionist, chef, author and TV host and I grew up loving hamburgers, french fries, pizza and chicken fingers… a shiny example that picky eating habits don’t last forever! Along with my hamburger loving ways, I also suffered from pretty painful digestive issues, eventually being diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I was in chronic pain for 9 years until I turned to food to heal myself. After being completely symptom free since 2008, it’s my passion to assist people to eliminate pain, find health and eat nourishing, real good food. I got my BA (hons) from McGill, went to the the Institute of Holistic Nutrition to become a Certified Nutritionist and I’m a chef. I combine my knowledge of nutrition and passion for cooking to work with clients to create lasting changes in their lives.
A few other fun facts: I’m a mama, I hosted a TV show called Home Cookin’, Sarah and I create recipes, write and photograph delicious food for Food Network and we’re publishing our first cookbook with Appetite by Random House in January 2019.
