My name is Yvonne. I am a mother, a wife, a daughter, an aunt, manager/ chef/ maintenance crew at the Syto Manor, novice superhero of the planet, Girl Scout leader, soccer coach and a foodie.

Needless to say, like so many women that have come before me, I wear many hats. I have one of the best jobs on the planet. I get to be a stay at home mother and wife that happens to get paid to talk about food all day long. Many people are unsure what dietitians actually do when they are advised to see one. Contrary to popular belief, we are not in the business of taking food away. What a horrible business model that would be. Rather, we give food back to our patients arming them with the tools they need to live healthy in the real world. We provide survival skills to navigate in an ever changing world.

How do I summarize myself? At the end of the day, I am a plant pusher getting people to eat real food without judgement and guilt.

  1. Hi there Yvonne! I just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award! All the information is in my latest post: Basically, your blog is so informative and helpful, and I’m really impressed by everything you post. Your last post definitely convinced me to order a food scale, and so I’m waiting for mine to come now! I can’t wait! I’m in school to be a registered dietitian, and i have many family members, including my dad, who have diabetes, so your information is incredibly relevant to me and my health journey. You are also a great writer, and i just love reading all of your posts, so thank you!!

    1. Thanks for the nomination! I am glad you have found my blog helpful. The best of luck in your studies and health journey. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have regarding the field of nutrition.
