A dietitian at heart

What can I say? I’m a dietitian at heart. But I’m human, too. I love crisp salads, great grains, low-fat yogurt... chocolate mousse, a slice of pizza and even a glass of fine wine.

When it comes to smoothie offerings, many restaurants have abandoned health for a product [...]
  • Sesame Street Super Foods

    Now that I’m watching Sesame Street with my little munchkin I’ve been enjoying their attempts to teach healthy eating. Did you know that Elmo’s favourite food is wasabi, which is a “sometimes” food like cookies. In one video, Elmo tries kiwi for the first time after being encouraged to do so by the superfood puppets. I [...]
