About

Karen Gilman, Founder

You are here because you:

  • Have no idea what to feed your daughter
  •  Are worried she is going to be malnourished
  •  Need some support with meal planning

Vegetarian diets can provide all the nutrients kids need to grow and thrive. But following a vegetarian diet can sometimes be a challenge. You can’t just defrost some chicken throw it under the broiler and be done with dinner. Vegetarian meals require a little more time to plan and sometimes prepare. I can help remove some of the stress from this process and help you make nutritious and appetizing meals for your family.

I don’t want you to agonize over each and every meal you prepare. Oh and school lunches, ugh! They were already a struggle to begin with.
And you don’t want your daughter getting her nutrients from a jar of vitamins. Though she occasionally may need to, it is best to strive to get her all that she needs from the food she eats.

Why me?

I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (TM) and mom to two teenage (yikes!) girls, one vegetarian, one not. For me, preparing vegetarian meals for the past 30 years coupled with the Diploma in Natural Nutrition from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, has provided me with the insight and tools to provide help to families whose children are vegetarian.

As a mom, I know the struggles with getting everyone to eat well. I love cooking healthy meals from scratch for my family. Sometimes they eat them, sometimes they don’t.

As a Registered Holistic Nutritionist it is my role to support dietary and lifestyle changes your family can embrace.

Registered Holistic Nutritionists (RHNs) are professionals trained in natural nutrition and complementary therapies, whose principal function is to educate individuals or groups about the benefits and health impact of optimal nutrition. The word “Holistic” means looking at the body as a whole, rather than just the symptoms and working on improving specific areas of your body at the functional level.
