Spring is here! If you are in Ottawa like us, you know that this winter has been brutal, so we are so thankful for the warm weather. Spring is a time of rejuvenation and change. During this time, people often get the urge to start spring cleaning; out with the old and in with the new. If you’re looking to start making some changes, why not start with your eating habits? This month's newsletter is all about small changes to make a big impact on your health this spring.
If you’ve been on multiple diets during your lifetime and have vowed with each one that this diet will be the last one, only to have it end with guilt and shame and a vow to do better next time, you may be stuck in the diet cycle.
If you follow my work, you know that I am a huge believer in Intuitive Eating and making eating decisions based on how your body feels. That being said, I find that having a basic framework to build balanced meals can help take some of the pressure off meal planning, while still providing the opportunity to make decisions in the moment based on what your body needs right now, and what you have upcoming in your day.
It's no secret that the way I practice Dietetics and the work I do with my clients changed A LOT when my daughter was born. Last week I recorded my first ever podcast with Marie-Pier from The Balanced Dietitian Podcast where I talked a little bit about my journey towards intuitive eating and weight-inclusive care and how becoming a mom played a large roll in my journey. We also chatted about the challenges that new moms can face and how intuitive eating can help support your postpartum journey.
