Dietitian Approved Road Trip Snacks

Dietitian Approved Road Trip Snacks

With summer being SO busy - having healthy snacks on hand for all your activities can seem impossible. This tends to lead to people eating fast food, or grabbing unhealthy ‘junk foods’ at gas stations or on the road.

I've rounded up my TOP tips for road trip snacks that are quick & easy - and to keep the whole family happy! You can watch the replay here: Tip 1: Make-Ahead Road Trip Snacks Fail to plan, and plan to fail, I always say. By having snacks on hand, it makes the healthiest choice, the easiest choice.

5 day menu for IBS & gut health

June has been an exciting month. I've been gearing up to launch something people have been asking me for for a LONG time. Introducing my FREE 5 Day Menu for IBS & Gut Health  As my clients and followers know, I offer a one week and four week low FODMAP menu through counselling, and on my site. However, I was starting to get a bit frustrated with all the confusion about FODMAP's and gut health that are out there - and starting to see that, as FODMAP's become more 'main stream' - people are using the diet for all the wrong reasons, and without a proper explanation and implementation. Ok. I'll get off my soap box now and tell you what it's all about. This menu is focused on IBS...

Beat Summer Bloat

Does summer time mean dealing with summer bloat? It's common. Since we have so little time to truly enjoy nice weather in Canada, we hang up our aprons, spend time on patios, picnicking, barbecuing, and all in all, putting nutrition on the back burner. It's no wonder my gut clients complain that summer time makes them feel bloated & uncomfortable with the abundance of food! I thought I would share my top four tips with you to beat summer bloat! Top 4 Tips to Beat Summer Bloat Get CONSISTENT fibre. You're health conscious - and let's face it - you still gotta work.
