1. Begin slowly but gradually

Of course, if we remove everything from our diet in such a short amount of time with no substitution, the conversion will be rather difficult. Depending on whether you are starting from scratch or starting from a vegetarian diet, have small goals to reach your ultimate goal, gradually.

Begin to explore different substitution options for meat, cheese, eggs and milk. Discover your tastes and preferences! Then, the next step is simply to gradually increase the frequency of vegan meals or days per week.


Quick answer: supertasters do exist! In fact, I've met several of them in my clientele! Interestingly, individuals are divided into 3 categories: non-tasters (25%), average tasters (50%) and supertasters (25%).

Like superheroes, supertasters have a special power to detect bitterness and taste more strongly than others. Average tasters are sensitive to this, but much less so than super-tasters.


Gender stereotypes are found everywhere, from clothing to toys. But did you know that they are even found on grocery store shelves and in our pantry! Here’s a quick summary of the major trends in gender stereotypes in food.

What are the feminine eating stereotypes?

—healthy, light (or with these indications).



—Delicate foods that are eaten in small bites.

—with a pale or even pink packaging!

—sweet, but not too sweet!


This is the key message to remember for developing healthy eating behaviours and relationships from childhood.

As a parent, let your child decide how much food to eat and offer foods of good nutritional quality for optimal growth and development. It is also important to establish the notion of pleasure in eating and to enjoy meals in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

As a team, we support each other in order to offer you an exceptional local dietitian service that is personalized and adapted to the latest food science.


Did you know that you can reduce hot flashes by more than 20% with soy alone?

Since it is implied that nutritionists eat well … what are they doing during the holiday break?!

Asking this question is a symptom of the famous food dichotomy that still circulates: eating well or eating poorly. Unless you’re talking about food stains on the tablecloth or on our brand new white shirt … we should get rid of that mentality! But, since that’s what you’re here for, here’s what nutritionists do over the holidays, or at least a summary of my own program!


Not all breakfasts are created equal. Though you may be rushed in the morning, skipping breakfast can leave you feeling tired and starving, causing overeating later on. Starting the day with a meal high in sugar or low in fibre and protein can also leave you feeling hungry and craving more within hours. The right breakfast, however, can help you wake up, feel energized, and start the day on the right foot—and it doesn’t require a lot of preparation time!

Here are 10 breakfast ideas to get your day started right.


Whether it’s for work, sports or your chidren's activities, it’s frequent to end up getting something on-the-go or even to skip snacks altogether!

Here is why we should plan for snacks :


"Another little piece of fish? Why not, it's healthy! "
"I should eat dinner, it’s already 5:30 pm. "
"I trained hard today, so that means I can eat more than usual! "

bloating nutrition

Do you sometimes have this unpleasant feeling that your belly is swollen after eating certain meals? Do you suddenly feel tight in your pants at the waistline? You may be bloated.

What is bloating?

Bloating is a feeling you have when there is more gas or fluid in your intestines than normal. It is usually accompanied by abdominal distension and sometimes abundant gas, burps, diarrhea or even constipation.


Milk that is 2 days past its best before date? Overripe banana? Wilted carrot? We all have the habit of throwing away our forgotten food… because it’s easy! According to the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization), the third of all the food that is produced for consumption is lost or wasted, which represents 1.3 billion tonnes of food each year. About half this waste is generated on the consumers’ side, in our homes. That’s around 27$ of food each week that goes straight to garbage! Fortunately, with very simple gestures, we can make a big difference.
