Meet the face behind, In Your Face Nutrition.
I’m Emma, a Registered Dietitian, Certified Diabetes Educator and from work to play my life revolves around food. I originally started this website to share recipes that I had created, kitchen tips and to promote healthy eating behaviours and healthy food choices. I soon realized that doing that wasn’t enough, now I’m rebranding what was once Dietitianeats and growing my writing under mentorship to be a bigger voice in the nutrition world.
I want to get the messages worth reading out there!
I want to improve the overall health and intake of Canadians by lessening the (over) consumption of unhealthy foods due to knowledge gaps, obesogenic environments and the increasing exploitation of socially and economically vulnerable Canadians.
I don’t believe in the “eat this, not that.” attitude. I believe in a diet that allows you to discover new foods you can enjoy, challenge the way you prepare food and provide adequate nourishment for the body in an affordable manner.
Your food (diet) should be affordable, achievable and acceptable. I believe the food you purchase should be affordable, you should know how to store and prepare it and you should enjoy eating it, thus making it acceptable. If your current diet (what you eat) doesn’t fit within the ‘triple A’ seeing a dietitian may be useful to help you in improving your diet.
I’m happiest in the kitchen, travelling to try new foods and restaurants or being active. I love to be challenged and am constantly motivated to learn more. I enjoy playing on teams for sport and working with a team, my motto is “A team isn’t a team without synergy”.
