Lauren

Organic, Fresh, Wholesome FOOD FOR LIFE

My name is Lauren and over the past few years healthy living has become a passion of mine. I'm 30 years old and graduated with a BA from the University of Western Ontario in 2005. A few years after graduating, I felt the need to pursue my passion and enrolled in the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. As a Registered Nutritionist, I find myself constantly wanting to share health tips with my husband, family & friends, so I decided to write a blog.

To my future blog subscribers: I hope to educate you about nutrition, share my own personal health & fitness tips & recipes, and help you make healthy changes to start living a healthy lifestyle.

I also write a blog called 'the other big O' (as in organic) with more nutrition tips and travel stories you can check out.

If you'd like to book a free 15-minute consultation, please email me at laur1982@gmail.com.

Disclaimer: This blog reflects my point of view, and not the viewpoint of CSNN or those therein.
