This month I’d like to discuss supporting self love through nutrition.
It is so easy to forget to treat ourselves with love when we’re busy spouses, parents, pet-parents, professionals, students, or any other position where we spend much of our time caring for, servicing or trying to please others.
By now you may have had the chance to take a look at Canada’s new Food Guide for 2019. Maybe you’ve already formed your own opinion on it. Perhaps it has inspired you to make some changes in 2019, or maybe you’re just happy to keep eating the way you are.
Either way, I hope you’ll consider my thoughts on the new food guide.
You may know that it’s more difficult to obtain adequate Vitamin D during harsh Canadian winters, and perhaps you supplement with it, but do you know why this vitamin is so important?
As a nutritionist, it’s probably no secret that I recommend my clients focus on eating whole, unprocessed real food.
Now, the fact that we’re even using the term Real Food & fake food, or that we have health food stores versus a regular grocery stores, is deeply disturbing to me.
