When the joy goes out of eating, nutrition suffers. – Ellyn Satter
Hi! My name is Kirstie, and I love food. Professionally speaking, I am a registered dietitian (RD), which means it’s my job to talk about food. WHAT. I love it. The neat thing about being an RD is everyone understands food because we all eat! The tricky thing about being an RD is a lot less people understand nutrition. There are many crazy things on the internet that seem to cause a lot more harm than help. My goal is to help others embrace nutrition and the joy of eating, so I started this website to share evidence-based nutrition information, healthy eating tips, and my favourite recipes!
I’ve loved food since I was a tiny human, so it’s a joy knowing I get to embrace a career I’m passionate about. I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor’s of Science in Food, Nutrition, and Health, with honours, as a dietetics major. (It’s a mouthful, I know). I am currently registered with the College of Dietitians of BC, and I work as an clinical dietitian in inpatient and outpatient care for Fraser Health.
Outside of the food world, I am also in love with my husband David, cozying up with a book, running, a good hike in the mountains, and Jesus.
