About pages are my favourite pages on blogs. They’re the first page I visit on any new blog.
I first started blogging back in University at this blog here, that was 7 years ago (eep! Time flies). I’ve been blogging off and on since.
I’m a 28 year old dietitian working on the beautiful Vancouver Island in British Columbia. I love being a dietitian, even though it wasn’t something I dreamed about becoming as a kid, I’m happy I’ve chosen this career. Food is a powerful and is a place where many parts of our life meet, and I love talking to people about their eating and health habits. I think about food, nutrition and health all the time.
On this blog I like to break down myths, particularly around dieting, food and health. The way we talk about food and health is confusing as hell, and while what you eat is important, there’s a lot of evidence that the why and how is just as important. I come from a Health At Every Size perspective, and try to break the dieting cycle with many of the people I work with. When we tune into our cravings, our hunger and our fullness, we nourish our bodies 100% better then by following strict rules of “good” and “bad” foods. Food should be enjoyable, and eating foods you enjoy does not make you unhealthy. I use this blog as a place to get my thoughts on some of these concepts out into the world.
In my spare time I’m working on a graduate school program, playing Ultimate Frisbee, Roller Derby, lifting Heavy things and training for the West Coast Trail. I also find time to relax, visit with friends, and just chill at home with my cat.
