A word from the author

Nutrition is a very complex science that is every evolving and changing, making it challenging, yet exciting to work in. Because nutrition is ever changing, it is important to ensure proper information is being shared. Nutrition is both preventative and restorative in nature, and when understood, can be a benefit in both regards. Sharing evidenced based nutrition is something I am passionate about as a dietitian and medical professional. Nutrition is not only complex with regards to the research and science behind it, but nutrition is also complex in that fact that it involved emotions. Food is tied to memories, celebrations, holidays, etc. Understanding both the science and the psychology behind nutrition is imperative when working towards creating a healthy relationship with food.
