Aglaée is no-nonsense & gut-friendly registered dietitian and nutritionist (with 10+ years of experience). She faced many health issues, especially with her digestion and hormones, which made her ditch the food pyramid to develop a natural and holistic approach to heal herself.
She shares her approach in her book & cookbook “Digestive Health with REAL Food: A Practical Guide to an Anti-Inflammatory, Nutrient Dense Diet for IBS & Other Digestive Issues” and her blog RadicataNutrition.com. She is also a crunchy mom and co-hosts the podcast Real Food Mamas.
Now that she healed herself, she loves eating (chocolate, plantains and butter are her favorite foods!), yoga, traveling, practicing her Spanish and spending time in nature (glimpses on Instagram).
My name is Aglaée and I am a no-nonsense & gut-friendly REAL FOOD registered dietitian and nutritionist
(with 12+ years of experience!).
I love coaching people to help them live their full potential by getting their health and life back using REAL food and natural remedies.
WARNING: I do not believe in the conventional nutritional dogma (after experiencing my own health issues with my digestion and hormones). I don’t believe in the food pyramid or counting calories or grams of anything. What I do believe is that health starts in the gut.
This is why I call myself a no-nonsense & gut-friendly registered dietitian & nutritionist. I also like throwing real food in my title because my approach is, unlike that of many other practitioners out there, based on real food and natural remedies rather than calories, grams of fat or percentage of this or that or supplements, pills and potions.
All I care about is helping you find the right way of eating for you. It usually involves getting rid of the processed food but I use my special art & science to help you figure out the rest. And most importantly, I guide you along the way to help you implement the health habits that will bring out your best self.
I would love to help you bring your full potential into this world by making sure your body and brain are working as well as they should because I truly believe the world would be a better place if we could all be and feel healthier. I also sincerely believe that the environment and the planet can also greatly benefit from a healthier lifestyle. Together, we can change the world one meal at a time. 🙂
After practicing conventional nutrition as a registered dietitian for 5 years, I realized that my career was not fulfilling as much as I had hoped to. I didn’t feel like I was able to help people enough with the tools I had.
Hungry to find my path, I sold everything I owned and went backpacking in South America for a few months. My travels opened my mind in more ways than I could never have imagined.
I started looking at everything with a fresh perspective. Including health & nutrition.
I started going back to the basics of biochemistry to better understand nutrition. I also started listening to experts in the fields of alternative medicine and holistic nutrition (many of them I had previously considered quacks and simply dismissed without taking the time to listen).
It was shocking to me to discover all the existing scientific evidence about alternative approaches that was never presented to me in dietetic school.
I felt betrayed at first but then empowered to make a difference.
That’s when things started going downhills with my health. I had brought back an unwanted souvenir from South America: a parasite. And post-infectious IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). And then FODMAP intolerance and SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth).
After months of being sick, I finally figured out a natural and holistic protocol to heal my gut.
Inspired to help more people struggling with digestive issues, I decided to take on the project to write a book to share everything I had learned, including the protocol I had developed. Digestive Health with REAL Food was born.
The (too long) period of time I experienced digestive issues remain a dark part of my life but I now know it happened for a reason. Healing myself naturally was a turning point in my life and I am forever grateful to now be able to help so many others suffering with the same issues do the same so they can get their life back.
This is what I am the most passionate about! There is nothing I like more than hearing times and times again how the power of real food changes my clients’ life in unimaginable ways. 🙂
Why Radicata Nutrition?
What does Radicata mean?
Radicata is latin for root because I truly believe that nutrition is the root of health!
This word also represents my approach very well because my goal is to find the root of your health issues because that’s best place we need to work on to start changing your health and your life for the better!
A few fun facts about me:
- I love traveling, I am fluent en español and en français and after living as a digital nomad for a few years, I went back to my roots to live in my province of origin: Québec (Canada).
- I am a true chocolate addict (although I have learned to love the good healthier kind!).
- I am a mom to a toddler and a momtrepreneur, which means that even though I seem relatively well put together (I try my best at least), I might actually still be wearing my pajama bottoms when we talk online via skype or when recording a webinar or videos. You’re absolutely welcome to do the same. 🙂
- And if you’re wondering how to pronounce Aglaée, it’s really simple and it goes like this: [AH – GLA – AY]. Or click here to listen to me pronouncing my name.
