Hello, I’m Stephanie, a Toronto based Holistic Nutritionist who believes in the power of transformation that lies within a lifestyle comprised of eating fresh, whole foods, cooking with real ingredients, and doing what makes you happy each and every day.
An unexpected beginning….. I am a recovering sugar, processed food, drive-thru, negative self talk addict. Today, as a nutritionist, I can say that I’m grateful for being that person who was 240lbs, unhealthy and unhappy because it has taught me so much about taking care of myself and living my life to the fullest. Things began to unfold with little body whispers, that eventually turned into aggressive and desperate screams. These whispers began as aches and pains, irregular headaches and difficulty focusing; those annoying pains that are easily masked or ignored. Then my body began to talk a little louder, I felt bouts of exhaustion and dizziness. But before long, my life crashed and those whispers became impossible to get out of bed screams. My personal health journey has been far from smooth roads and sunny skies, experiences I draw from and am grateful for each and every day. I have an undeniable passion for the healing power of food and consciousness, having experienced the immense power of transformation myself. This has lead me to the knowing that for me, there is no better path in life than the one of supporting people in their journey of finding themselves and coming into complete, whole health. Today, as nutritionist, reiki practitioner and Wellbeing expert my hope is to help you listen to the whispers before your body and soul really start to scream.
MY GOAL – The kitchen for me is a place of peace and joy, my best source of therapy. Everything that I create is infused with love and I hope to inspire others to find a similar love for nutritious, whole foods. I do not believe in ‘diet’. Instead, I believe in balance, that everything in life is either expansive or contractive. After having an unhealthy, contractive relationship with food for years, I’ve come to realize that sustainable health can only be achieved from a place of balance. My goal as a nutritionist is to teach my clients how to make healthy choices. Our food choices impact the health of every single cell in our body, those choices can make the difference between feeling ok and feeling GREAT. I don’t believe in quick fixes, I believe that results and vitality come from living a healthy balanced lifestyle. I want to strip away the confusion about how to live your healthiest life, and most of all I want to empower you with information and tools to live your BEST life.
WHAT I’M NOT AFRAID TO ADMIT
- I’m NOT perfect. I allow myself indulgences like french fries every now and again.
- I LOVE coffee and drink one delicious cup of freshly roasted organic Mocha Java each morning.
- I will teach you the benefits of daily meditation, but struggle myself to maintain consistency
Remember! It takes much courage to tune in, to listen to the whispers and begin to release the familiar. but there is no real security in what is no longer serving you. There is more security in the letting go, for in change there is life – A beautiful healthy & happy Life.
