Living with COVID-19

My clients typically are at elevated risk of COVID-19 complications, so my consults are now 100% virtual, for everyone’s safety. We use a secure platform designed for healthcare professionals (IntakeQ).

Feel free to reach out to me for a free introductory call if you’re struggling with food during this difficult time. Happy to help you stay well.

(Sorry to say I can’t do individual consults with residents of BC, Ontario, Quebec, and PEI due to regulations set by their dietetic colleges. But if you live there and need a referral, look on the Dietitians of Canada website.)

Ways I can support you

Meal Planning Session

If you struggle to come up with satisfying heart-healthy meals, day after busy day.

We’ll set up a meal planning routine that works for you and create individualized lists of go-to breakfasts, snacks, and entrees, so you can save time and eat better. You’ll feel good about supporting your health while still enjoying one of life’s great pleasures… food!

Clarity Session

If you’re confident in your eating habits and ability to follow through, but want help making sense of conflicting advice from different sources. 

Ask as many burning questions as you can fit into an hour and leave with a better understanding of nutrition and heart health. My goal is for you to feel more confident in your food choices, so you have one less thing to stress about.

Label reading and (online) grocery store tour

If you read labels, but aren’t sure what’s most important and what it all means.  

I’ll teach you how to interpret the information on packages, including nutrition facts, ingredient lists, and marketing claims. We’ll look at some of my favourite heart-healthy products. Knowledge is power. Don’t be fooled by another misleading food label again.

Packages

Jumpstart to Change

If heart health is important to you, but you struggle to stay on track. You have one or more nutrition-related heart disease risk factors that need attention — blood sugars, pressure, cholesterol, or triglycerides.

We’ll start with a 30-minute cardiac nutrition assessment, after which I’ll send you a comprehensive, personalized report with recommendations to support your goals. We’ll discuss that in a 60-minute session so you get clear on what to eat, and make a plan to help you get started.

We’ll follow that with two additional 60-minute sessions to troubleshoot, problem-solve, and if you like, address topics from the Single Session list above. You’ve got this.

First session: 30 minutes .
Subsequent sessions (3): 60 minutes each .
Cardiac Nutrition Assessment Report .
$375 .

Cardiac Nutrition Assessment

If you’re a highly motivated self-starter who wants to ensure you’re on the right track with eating for heart health.

Think of this as your annual nutrition checkup. You’ll complete a questionnaire and food record, after which we’ll meet to ensure that I understand your priorities, health situation, and eating habits.

Then I’ll provide you with a personalized assessment and recommendation report and then we’ll meet again to review it, answer your questions, and solidify your plan. 

First session: 30 minutes .
Second session: 60 minutes .
Cardiac Nutrition Assessment Report .
$195 .

Follow-Up Consultations

If you’re making changes and are looking for a coach to support and cheer you on along the way.

We’ll review your progress, troubleshoot, and adjust your plan as necessary. Book a shorter session for a quick accountability check-in, a longer session if you have more questions or want to do additional work on one of the topics above. 

Healthy eating can be a real challenge in our culture, so there’s no shame in seeking support to stay motivated and keep things fresh. Most big studies where people made significant changes offer weekly support for the first few months, followed by an extended period of monthly support. The more often you connect with a coach or counsellor, the more likely you are to continue making progress, so take advantage!

60 minutes, $100 .
 45 minutes, $80 .
30 minutes, $55 .
15 minutes, $30 .

Healthy eating doesn’t have to be hard

Between the media, the Internet, diets, and your helpful family, sometimes you can feel lost.

 

It doesn’t have to be that way!

Most nutrition experts agree on the fundamentals of eating to support good health. And there are lots of ways to get there. 

One that works for you, I’m willing to bet. That’s what I call your sweet spot. That place where healthy, delicious, and right for you overlap.

I’m here to help you find your Sweet Spot. It might take a little time and some experimentation. Even once you know what to do, you may struggle to consistently do it. But once you really find your Sweet Spot, you’ll get to relax and confidently enjoy great food that supports heart health.

Let’s find your sweet spot.

If cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, blood sugars or any other nutrition-related aspect of cardiovascular health is your primary concern and…

  • You want to say goodbye to food stress.
  • You’re done with dieting — losing weight only to gain it back in a year or two. 
  • You do want to eat for better health, energy, and satisfaction.

Start by scheduling an introductory call and we’ll go from there!
