Do you eat to live or do you live to eat? We believe you can do both. Yes, food is meant to nourish your body, but it also nourishes your soul. For us at dining services, food is about more than just substance. We strive to make every meal a memorable dining experience. We believe in good food – and not just food that tastes good, but that’s good for your body, for our communities, and for the planet.
One of the biggest challenges of making healthy lifestyle choices is eating outside of your home. It’s confusing, intimidating, and often frustrating. How many calories is that sandwich? And what about hidden fat grams in sauces? How do you know if you’re making the right choice? Health and flavor don’t need to be mutually exclusive.
My job as the Registered Dietitian at dining services is to be a support system, helping the university community make informed choices about their food and lifestyle. I believe that good, nutritious food fuels healthy, active people. I’m here to fill you in on the most current research in the field of nutrition, whether it be the newest fad diet, the most amazing cleanse that will make you look like a Victoria’s Secret angel overnight (satisfaction not guaranteed), or the most up to date nutritional recommendations from Health Canada. On top of keeping you guys up to speed, I’m also here if you need one-on-one guidance or advice on a variety of issues (allergies, restrictions, weight management, services available on campus, sports nutrition, etc.). I would be happy to meet with you personally and work together to make positive, beneficial changes.
