We are looking forward to continuing to serve the Calgary area and expand our digital nutrition offerings this year. Here is a sneak-a-peak of our cozy new private waiting room:

How to Work on Inner Personal Growth (If You Don’t Have Time to Read Books)


Why audiobooks are awesome

By Registered Dietitian / Online Nutritionist Lindsay Rieger

Working on personal growth all sounds great on paper (or as I’m spouting it off to clients) however let’s be honest, life happens…and it is very busy for most. A lot of clients that I work with don’t even have time to even get groceries never mind read a book on bettering oneself. Enter one of my greatest loves…audiobooks.
