Help for Bingeing and Binge Eating Disorder


Support for Overeating and Bingeing Issues

In our practice, we commonly support clients struggling with bingeing issues as well as binge eating disorder. Binge eating or eating in an uncontrolled way can happen to anyone at any age, gender or weight. Everyone eats emotionally sometimes but when eating becomes an ongoing issue that is causing distress, help is available. When a client works collaboratively with the right support (Psychologist, Physician and Eating Disorder Dietitian), change is absolutely possible. Our Registered Dietitian team works closely with clients seeking a better relationship with food. It is rewarding to be part of helping clients move from a place of eating shame and overwhelm, to a place of food freedom.

Kids Nutrition Adventures in the Produce Aisle by a Mom Dietitian


How to Get Kids Interested in Fruits and Veggies

One of my favourite mom dietitian things to do with my kids when grocery shopping is to let them pick out a new (or new-to-them) fruit or veggie (it usually ends up being a fruit). While I’d love for them to pick out more vegetables, I’m a realist and know starting with fruit is a good way to feed their curiosity when it comes to new food (plus if they are bugging me to buy them something sweet, fruit is a good compromise).

For obvious reasons, my kid’s don’t get much say in what goes into our grocery cart, otherwise my cart would be filled with lots of processed or sugary foods. As a mom (and a dietitian) I love giving them a little freedom to pick out a new food item and the produce section is a good place to start. Of my children, one especially isn’t the most adventurous eater but this is one way that he has become interested in trying new foods.

Balsamic Strawberry Asparagus Salad Recipe


Try This Fresh Spring & Summer Salad

This easy balsamic strawberry asparagus salad recipe takes advantage of fresh seasonal produce, as well as using the BBQ to roast the asparagus. With a drizzle of balsamic reduction, and fresh basil, this side dish is a great blend of spring or summer flavours. Serve with grilled meat, poultry, seafood or tofu and whole grain garlic toast for a balanced meal.

We specialize in the achievement of health without guilt or complexity. Since 2000, our Calgary nutritionists have offered nutrition counselling, professional speaking, educational resources, media expertise as well as food and grocery industry consulting. We also offer a one of a kind online nutrition course "The Pursuit of Healthiness" for individuals and employees looking to achieve better health, energy and move towards your personal best weight (still enjoying foods you love).

We stand for balanced living and no unnecessary food restrictions. You can count on us for healthy eating advice that always saves room for your favorites.

Live Deliciously,
