There’s a lot of ways to describe food, eating, diets, and our relationships to all of those things.

We have a weight problem. The problem isn’t with what we weigh; rather, it’s with how we talk about weight and our bodies in general.   Kylie, a client of mine, recalled to me a time that she went out to what was supposed to be a fun, relaxing dinner with some of her friends.... Read more »

I reviewed intermittent fasting a while back, admittedly, I didn’t have many good things to say about my 5:2 experience.  Today I’m re-reviewing IF because it’s still a really big thing, and surprisingly, my mind has changed a bit about it.  Before we get started, I want to put one thing on the table.

This diet review is an opinion piece.    I’ve gotten so many requests to review Brightline Eating, so here we go! Brightline claims that it helps people live ‘happy, thin, and free’.  The diet is based off of the premise that just like smokers who can’t have one cigarette every once in a while, people...

This Ideal Protein diet review is an opinion piece.   It’s been quite a while since I reviewed the Ideal Protein program, but the response to my review has been overwhelming to say the least. I’ve gotten hate mail, compliments, and even a few clients coming to me because they couldn’t bear to be on... Read more »

A lot of you have been messaging me about Beyond Meat and Impossible burgers and other plant-based meat alternatives, asking if they’re healthy. My answer is always, ‘healthy’ compared to what? To meat? To other meatless items? To a steady diet of Big Macs?  ‘Healthy’ is always relative, and it’s always subjective. I actually try... Read more »

I used to think the Environmental Working Group was a reputable, trustworthy source of information.  Emphasis on ‘used to’…that is, until I did a little digging into what’s behind their most popular work, the Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen. I was pretty taken aback with EWG’s dumpster fire of misinformation mixed with scare tactics and... Read more »

This recipe was developed in paid partnership with Florida Department of Citrus, however, all opinions are genuine.   Is summer actually here? As I’m writing this, it’s finally warming up in Toronto, but I’m still not confident enough in the weather to put my ski jacket away…and for those of you who think I’m joking,... Read more »

There are a ton of food rules to help us eat ‘healthier’ and ‘less processed’ foods: shop the perimeter of the grocery store, don’t eat anything in a box, choose foods whose ingredients you can pronounce, foods with more than 5 ingredients shouldn’t be eaten…but are these ‘rules’ even helpful?
