Today marks the official launch of our Educated Eater blog, a project 3+ years in the making! Thank you for visiting and showing your support for our worthwhile endeavor: to impact the health of our fellow Canadians in the most natural way possible – with food. Yummy, healthy, un-processed “convenience” food.
It’s time to change our definition of convenience. Taking a little time (and I mean only a little – it just takes knowing how, which is what we’re teaching here) to prepare whole, natural, nutrient-dense food is a lot more convenient, in our opinion, than battling heart disease, diabetes, and obesity – all diseases that can be positively impacted by improved nutrition.
But we’re really not here to scold, judge or shame people who don’t eat like an educated nutritionist. We get that there are obstacles; mainly a lack of awareness of what can be done to improve nutrition, as well as the lack of time to research and implement changes. So we’re here to empower you with both. By following our recipes and health tips, you will be able to start eating as though you were educated in the field – without having to take the time to pursue a second education! The criteria of our recipe submissions also ensures that the recipes you find here are easy and quick to prepare.
This site has been designed as a reference for anyone wishing to improve their nutrition and seeking information about how and where to start. You will find a number of recipes for any taste, all which have been contributed by well-educated and certified nutritionists throughout the country (listed on our Contributors page). Contributions will continue to be added on an on-going basis, so be sure to check back regularly for updates including new recipes, health tips, substitution ideas, and inspirational stories about the amazing transformations people have experienced through simple diet and lifestyle changes.
To find out a little more about the founders of the project and what we’re up to, please visit our About the Project and About the People pages. If you’re a nutritionist and want to contribute to this project, please visit our How You Can Help and Contact Us pages.
We look forward to your contributions and feedback as we continue to expand our vision!
Yours in health,
