Hello there! My name is Cate. I believe in more, not less.
More vegetables, more traveling, more laughter, more snacks, more movement that makes you happy, more dinner parties.
I am a Registered Dietitian (RD) and Certified Lactation Counselor (studying to become a International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) I’ve worked on organic farms, in cafes and bakeries, in hospitals, health centers, soup kitchens, and food pantries. Everything about food is my passion and I could talk about it all day. No, really.
I don’t believe in restrictive diets, and I don’t believe in cutting out whole food groups. I believe in more. I believe in feeling full.
When we talk about food, we are also talking about social justice, climate change, world hunger, gender issues, and worker’s rights, among many other issues.
And when we think about nutrition, oftentimes we think about weight loss, and forget that eating is about health- and true health incorporates many different parts of our life- and its much more than how we eat or exercise. These days, being at war with your body is normal, and that is NOT healthy.
My goal as a nutrition professional is to teach others how to feel full with both food and life.
My personal interests include cooking, running, reading, watching silly you tube videos, writing poetry, baking cookies, hiking, signing/songwriting, gardening, yoga, and getting lost in Google Maps (go on and Google Map Northern Canada, you won’t regret it).
Currently, I am lucky enough to be taking a year to travel around South America. I currently work at Healing House in Cusco, Peru as a nutrition counselor, and also volunteer with a wonderful organization called Peruvian Hearts. I am really privileged to be able to travel and highly, highly, encourage it should you ever have the chance.
If you have a specific question or would like to work together on a project, I am available for group and private consultations, as well as workshop development in the Cusco area.
