But you don’t really want to know all that, here’s who I really am;

I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, but more than that, I am passionate about food, heath and exercise……but mostly food! My experience in the health and fitness industry has spanned over a decade and I have learned TONS along the way. People LOVE to talk about food. We love to think that we are “eating healthy”, or “doing the right thing”, but the truth is, the vast majority of the population doesn’t have a clue what truly eating healthy means. I didn’t. And I really thought I did!

Over the past 3 years my journey took a real turn, I began asking a lot more questions, questioning “conventional wisdom” and digging deeper with my research. How is it, as an educated North American society that we have reduced our intake of fat, increased our intake of whole grains, have a slew of low-fat, low-sugar “diet” foods at our fingertips but continue to become increasing overweight and diseased? The answer is simple. None of those foods are what we evolved to eat.

All those questions and hours of research led me right back to the beginning, to our paleolithic ancestors. The simple truth is that the foods we ate 10,000 years ago are what we have evolved to thrive on, what makes us feel alive and energetic and able to tackle the world. These REAL foods help keep us at a healthy weight, free from disease and allow us to thrive! I’m not promoting some crazy “fad” diet with powders and potions and bars, I simply promote eating food. Real food, not the food products we have grown accustomed to. Real food tastes great and the meal combinations and delicious recipes are endless!! Real food will get you the real results you’ve been looking for!

    I loved your gluten free banana bread (http://www.bmacwellness.com/blog/2011/11/02/Best-Banana-Bread.aspx) but unfortunately this link no longer works so I no longer have access to your recipe … any chance you will be posting the recipe on this site? Thank you!
