            Hi there! I am Anna, and I'm so glad you're here. As a registered dietitian and certified intuitive eating counsellor I specialize in supporting folx of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds find peace with food and their bodies. 

I take a weight inclusive and trauma-informed approach, focusing on cultivating a positive and healthy relationship with food and your body, rather than trying to achieve a specific weight or shape. I know that there is a lot of stigma and discrimination around larger bodies and I strive to create a safer and more supportive environment for all of my clients. 

My goal is to be your guide as you (re)learn to listen to your body's signals of hunger and fullness, and as you (re)build trust in yourself to make food choices that feel good and nourishing for you in your body. I also incorporate mindfulness and self-compassion practices in order to embody a holistic approach that encompasses physical, mental and emotional health. 

I would be honoured to meet you, and support you on your journey to a more positive and peaceful relationship with food and your body.

I aim to help my clients to develop a healthy relationship with food and balanced eating habits through a realistic and personalized approach as well as to prevent and manage chronic diseases. As an avid sports enthusiast, I understand the energy requirements and the body's needs to perform well in sports such as skiing, running, team and individual sports. My mission is to help transform the subject of nutrition into an invigorating rather than intimidating experience.

En tant que passionnée de sport, je comprends les besoins énergétiques et les besoins du corps pour être performant dans des sports tels que le ski, la course à pied, les sports d'équipe et individuels. Ma mission est d'aider à transformer le sujet de la nutrition en une expérience vivifiante plutôt qu'intimidante.

Frequently asked questions

Benefits of a Plant-Based Lifestyle with a Specialized Vegan Dietitian

So you've decided to explore a plant-based lifestyle, or perhaps you're already well on your way. Regardless of your motivations or curiosity about this wonderful way of eating (environmental concerns, humanitarian and ethical values, religious practices, health considerations and more!).

You may be looking for some guidance and/or reassurance that you are getting all of your nutrition needs met. Look no further than a specialized vegan dietitian!

These nutrition professionals specialize in plant-based eating and can guide you on your journey to healthy, delicious and nutritious eating. In this article, we'll delve into the role of a vegan dietitian, the benefits of working with one, and some frequently asked questions.

How Can a Vegan Dietitian Help You?

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics position paper on vegetarian diets states that "Appropriately planned vegetarian, including vegan, diets are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits for the prevention and treatment of certain diseases".

vegan-nutrition-meal

There are several ways a vegan dietitian can help you navigate the world of plant-based nutrition:

  • Managing health conditions: If you have a chronic health condition, such as diabetes or heart disease, a vegan dietitian can help you tailor your diet to manage your symptoms and optimize your health.

  • Meal planning and nutrition coaching: They can provide guidance along with delicious recipes and ideas to help you to meet all your nutrient needs, taking into account your lifestyle, food preferences, and health goals. Your dietitian-nutritionist will also teach you about foods to look for or try out (if you are willing to!), to ensure you get all vitamins and minerals you need to thrive in your vegan life style.

  • Transitioning to a plant-based diet: If you're new to veganism, a vegan dietitian can provide guidance and support as you make the switch, addressing any concerns or questions you may have, while all the while still enjoying what you eat!

  • Sports nutrition: If you're an athlete, a vegan dietitian can help you optimize your plant-based diet for peak performance and recovery.

  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding: Did you know that vegetarian and vegan diets are appropriate for all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy? There is even some evidence that use of vegetarian diets in pregnancy is associated with a reduced risk of excessive gestational weight gain and gestational diabetes. Expecting and nursing mothers can receive specialized advice to meet the unique nutritional needs of this life stage.

Here is a short (non-exhaustive list) of concerns vegan registered dietitians commonly help people with:

  • Building a balanced plate with all the foods and food groups you'll need

  • Identifying nutrition mis-information and myths about vegan diets (for example the truth about soy)

  • Increasing your tolerance for beans and legumes (minus the flatulence!)

  • Grocery shopping on a tight budget

  • Simple preparation techniques for key staples including legumes, whole grains, soy products and vegetables

  • Unintended weight loss or feeling full early

  • Preparation techniques for vegetables to reduce odours and enhance flavours

  • Over-reliance on foods high in saturated fats

Disclaimer: Nutritionist vs Dietitian

In Canada, there is sometimes a difference between the terms Dietitian and nutritionist. While both titles can be use interchangeably in some provinces, this is not the case in others.

The title ‘Dietitian’ is protected by law across Canada in every province. The term ‘nutritionist’ however, is only a protected title in Alberta, Quebec, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

Only nutrition professionals who are regulated and have protected titles have a legal scope of practice which includes: providing individualized nutrition counselling, medical nutrition therapy, and nutrition education to individuals with specific health concerns.

That said, while the term "nutritionist" is sometimes used on this website, it is important to note that we only work with licensed Registered Dietitians in good standing with their provincial regulatory bodies. That means you can be assured that all of our partners providing nutrition counselling meet the education and ethical standards set by all of the provincial regulatory bodies across Canada.

We strongly recommend that you consult with a Registered Dietitian (or other recognized healthcare professional such as a doctor) when you are considering making any significant dietary changes.

Rest assured that on Online Nutrition, every nutrition professional is vetted to confirm they are a Registered Dietitian in good standing with their provincial regulatory body.
