This week for my heart-to-heart blog series about some of the most common struggles women (and men) face with food and their body. Because let’s face it, the way we relate to food can really be a reflection of how we live our lives. Dear Aglaée, I think I’m afraid of feeling hungry. I rarely feel hungry. I make sure I[…]
For this first of my new heart-to-heart blog series about how so many of us relate to food and our body in ways that feel a bit crazy (or crazier than we’d like), we’ll explore why the concept of moderation is so difficult to integrate in our lives (and especially in our stomach). Dear Aglaée, I don’t know[…]
The story of the little seed. A story about breaking free from food and weight struggles (my story and maybe yours too).
Once upon a time, there was a little seed lost and buried in the dark. She didn’t know how to break free of her husk and start living above the ground. She felt like she would be stuck there forever. She tried to be every kind of flower she saw on social medias and in[…]
Hi everyone! I haven’t been blogging in a little (long) while but I’m really excited to get back to it. After dedicating many years of my life and career working in the field of digestive health, I have recently taken the decision to take a new direction. I’ve always felt called to work in the area[…]
Hi, I’m a registered dietitian & nutritionist and my BMI is 26.1. If you’re not familiar with the BMI, it stands for Body Mass Index. It’s calculated by dividing your weight (in kg) by the square of your height (in square meters). It’s something a Belgian mathematician and statistician came up with back in 1830 and[…]

Do you sometimes change pants as the day goes by to make room for your bloating? Or perhaps you resorted to wearing yoga pants all the time since you’re always bloated? Have your digestive issues prevented you from living your life with the freedom you desire? You are NOT alone. I used to be bloated[…]
Here’s one of my favorite recipe because it requires very few ingredients and is easy to make in a pinch. Whenever possible, make a double batch and freeze extras to have a handy snack or treat when needed. Enjoy! Bon appétit!
You probably wouldn’t think that there is much to be said about canned tomatoes… but we always need to be on our toes whenever the food industry tries to prepare our food for us! 🙂 This week’s Friday Food X-Ray will actually be short and sweet. We don’t even need to look at the label.[…]
How often do you get sick? a) Is it 2-3 times a year? b) Every month? c) Whenever someone around you is sick? If you answer anything more than once a year, you are definitely NOT alone… … but even though it is common to get sick often, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it is normal. […]
Do you take a multi? I used to take one everyday… until I realized that a multi wasn’t doing anything that food couldn’t do and that some of the synthetic nutrients in the multi I was taking were actually NOT doing anything to improve my health. Personally, taking a daily multi left me anemic and[…]
The typical breakfast foods are unfortunately high in carbs and lack protein (see this post I wrote about the missing ingredient in your breakfast), which sets us up for feeling low in energy and craving sugar for the rest of the day. This breakfast should help you avoid this common problem by combining the perfect balance of nutrient-dense[…]
Veggie chips! That sounds like a healthy snack, doesn’t it? At least, that’s what the food industry would like you to think! Let’s have a closer look together.
