Diab-eat-this!

Research shows that nutrition therapy has a significant impact for those diagnosed with diabetes. Get individualized meal planning strategies and delicious exchanges for sweets and treats.

Sure, I’d rather you eat plenty of fruits and veggies instead of chicken wings and poutine, but rest assured this program is not a dictatorship. So your first step is to resist the urge to cast nutritionists or dieticians as villains threatening your food freedom!

In fact, that’s what makes working with a nutritionist so valuable: instead of a one-size-fits all approach, you’ll get information that fits your personal needs.

This program isn’t only for diabetics. I can also help you create an eating plan for special diets often related to diabetes. For example, celiac disease, kidney disease, lactose intolerance, or pregnancy.

This package includes...

  • 60-minute initial consultation to review your health history and current health status, and to define your health goals and current diabetes treatment
  • A 60-minute follow-up session with recommendations specific to your needs
  • Customized information package and resource materials
  • (Optional) 7-day meal plan with snacking ideas and mouth-watering recipes (+$95)

I will even take the recipes for some of your favourite foods and alter them to fit your dietary needs while keeping them appetizing to you. Yes — even cheesecake!

You will learn...

  • Recommendations for supplements and herbs specific to your needs
  • The best healthy sweeteners (and how to incorporate them into recipes)
  • Strategies for navigating restaurants and food courts
  • How to read food labels (and see the hidden sugars)
  • Which carbohydrates to embrace
  • Where to find beneficial fats and oils
  • How to reduce blood pressure and cholesterol
  • All about the Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load
  • How to make easy swaps with a handy ingredient substitution list

How it works...

Sessions can be done via telephone, or in person if you live within the Greater Victoria area on Vancouver Island. Additional follow-up consultations can be booked on a hourly basis for ongoing clients.

If you're ready to get started, simply fill out my online intake form (it only takes 15-20 minutes) and I will be in touch. Or learn more about the process on my How It Works page.

Cost... $125

Add a custom 7-day meal plan (with snacking ideas and mouth-watering recipes) for an additional $95.

Don’t wait: change your plate!

“Tricia, I just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed the cooking class. It was nice to get out of the office and learn something new together. It seemed like the men had the most fun – surprisingly! I think it was a great team building exercise for us and we will definitely do it again next year.”
