I'm a Toronto-based Holistic Nutritionist, Meditation & Yoga Instructor that focuses on anxiety. I help women get off the hamster wheel of looping thoughts and find calm using diet and mindfulness techniques.

Heather’s Reviews

Nutritionist approved source of sugar!

This alternative to traditional sugar peaked my interest when I saw the ingredients...just dates! I usually recommend my clients reduce refined sugar as it affects pretty much every cell in the body. And working in the area of anxiety management, blood sugar stability is KEY for feeling calm and happy....

Adaptogens to the rescue for stress & anxiety

This was my first time trying Niyama's Daytime Zen supplement, although I'm no stranger to adaptogens! I'm a big fan of using what nature has to offer (plants!!) as a way to cope with stress and anxiety. Our lives are stressful and there's a lot of uncertainty to deal with;...

A delicious chocolatey protein powder that's smooth as silk

I was excited to try Niyama's chocolate protein powder as I've tried their vanilla one in the past and enjoyed it! This one was even better! I wanted to work it into something more exciting than a smoothie so I recipe-tested a protein pumpkin loaf with awesome results. The pros...

A fun and flavourful snack to curl up with

Before trying this snack I actually had to google what "lotus seeds" were as I'd never seen them in a snack. But I think these little guys are going to be big in the coming years! The nutrition on them is solid with 14% of your fibre needs for the...

Culinary lavender used in a new way!

I've never used lavender in food before, but have always wanted to try it! I've only used the essential oil version to calm anxiety, but I was excited to try using it in a new way. I know lavender is calming and this is English lavender, which tends to be...

Lavender essential oil worked before a big presentation!

There's lots of research to support the use of lavender essential oil for anxiety, results are comparable with prescription benzos! It's something I use myself before nerve-wracking meetings or presentations, and I recommend it to many nutrition clients to help with sleep. What I like about this specific lavender is...

Organic spread that's a great alternative to dressing in salads!

I love the flavour of this organic vegetable spread! I used it in place of dressing in a salad because regular ol' oil & vinegar just doesn't do it for me anymore. I appreciate that the ingredients are fairly minimal, not a lot of extra stuff in the list. I'm...

A mood boosting oil that goes great with breakfast

I'm already a huge fan of styrian pumpkin seeds from Austria, I've used them in whole form before, and as a powder, but they can be tricky to work in. So I was really excited to find it in oil form for more versatility! The nutrition on them is solid,...

Supplement with the BEST adaptogenic herbs! Bye bye anxiety

Pretty pumped about this one! I've only just started taking it, and feel pretty good, but these types of herbs usually take a bit to ACTUALLY start working. Here's what I love about this product and why I'll be recommending it to my clients with anxiety:  ashwagandha - amazing for...

My natural chill pills for anxiety

I've been taking these for about 2 months now. I think the most interesting part was when I stopped taking them for a week (because I ran out) I noticed my anxiety returned. I started to feel panic at the grocery store like I used to. That's when I could...

A supplement to support mood and immunity!

We are living in an unprecedented time, and I'm sure we could all use a little extra support. For me, this support comes in the form of ramping up what supplements I use. I'm always talking about that gut-brain connection and how the bacteria in our body can support our...

First few sips are soothing and calming

This was my first time trying this tea with california poppy and chamomile! Luckily I'm having it before bed because the sleepies are setting in. The taste is pretty mild which I like, some chamomile teas are too strong for me.  As someone who works in anxiety and stress management...

Post yoga workout energy boost!

I’m always looking for mood boosts for clients and moringa fits the bill! Full of antioxidants like vitamin A, and mood boosting Vitamin B6, and a bit of protein to stabilize blood sugar.  This was a great addition to a post yoga workout energy ball recipe with natural peanut butter,...

Coconut oil makes a great addition to a fun breakfast!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, why not jazz it up! I used Silkeny coconut oil to brush sweet potato slices and make an awesome sweet potato toast with mashed avocado, sauerkraut, and hemp hearts. The coconut oil adds a mild sweet flavour to the toasts, and...

A fantastic alternative to soy!

It's not that I'm against soy, but following a plant-based diet means I rely heavily on it. It's nice to have an alternative that's just as savoury, but with a twist of sweet!I used this product in a stir fry with loads of veggies, tempeh, and cauliflower rice. Delicious!I also...

Give your tacos a plant-based boost

I love jackfruit because it's so versatile! Pulled pork? Check! Burritos? Check! My favourite is jackfruit tacos with sliced radishes, cabbage, avocado, cilantro, and a squirt of lime!Jackfruit is incredibly high in Vitamin B6 which helps activate GABA, your brain's main relaxing neurotransmitter. These tacos I made are a total...

A superfood with anti-inflammatory effects to boost your smoothies

I'm all about mood boosting double duty foods and moringa fits that bill! It has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects (so key for reducing anxiety). It has also shown blood sugar stabilizing effects, another key for anxiety. Unsure how to use it? I blend it into smoothies, or add to some...

Keep that blood sugar stable with healthy fats

One of the biggest triggers for anxiety is your blood sugar swinging all over the place. These bars do a great job of stabilizing that blood sugar with healthy fats. I find I'm full for a few hours with one of these. Oh and they're super creamy!! So great there's...

Focus without the caffeine jitters

I don't recommend caffeine to my clients as for most people it spikes their anxiety! No thank you! Four sigmatics coffee-free mushroom blends are a great alternative to caffeine and still give a boost to help you focus. Huge fan of this product, and would recommend for anyone who is...

Mood support in its most bioavailable form

I usually recommend a B complex to my clients. Especially if there's any sort of mood issues or stress is really high! I've had great success with this product as those who are poor methylators can still use this supplement. Get ready for energy galore!

Slip into dreamland with this awesome blend

This tea is fantastic! Such a great combination of herbs to help you sleep. As someone with anxiety sleep doesn't come easy. My mind is always racing. This tea helps calm and relax everything in my body so I can drift off to sleep.
