Hi Lovely. So glad you found your way here.
I’m Ana, a Holistic Nutritionist based in Toronto, Canada.
I’m a super taster (it’s not as “super” as it sounds), a picky eater and a recovering chocolaholic. I have two young boys I call My Little Tank and Sweetie Pie.
I focus on infant and children nutrition and sprinkle in some hormone balancing help for mommies.
Throughout high school and my twenties my eating habits were nothing short of disastrous. I thought my body could handle it because I had no apparent health troubles. But little by little, I became addicted to sugar, had acne pretty much until I was almost 30, PMS, extreme bouts of fatigue, insomnia, migraines, and weight gain to are a few.
I’ve always known that I had poor eating habits, but I also had no idea how to cook. As the time came for me to start having a family, I knew this was going to be a problem.
I remember my grandmother making me natural remedies when I was sick and cooking the most flavourful soups. She would make everything from scratch ad the kitchen always smelled delicious. I know I wanted to be able to cook like that one day.
I became so overwhelmed and tired of scouring the internet getting conflicting advice form people quoting the same studies … I had no idea what to believe. Learning about nourishing my body for my pregnancy because a bit of a favourite hobby, so I decided to enrol at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and become a holistic nutritionist.
BEST DECISION EVER!
Here are 11 Fun Facts about me
1. I grew up hating food … except chocolate. I’m a supertaster, so I taste everything way more intensely then I would like. so it can be difficult for me to enjoy certain foods. But I always loved chocolate …. Ok fine, I still love chocolate!
2. The hardest thing I ever did in my life was getting through the first few months as a new mommy. Boy, it was tough. It was also the most rewarding experience I ever had. Now that I have two, I’m so lucky that My Little Tank is
3. After 10 years of smoking, I finally quit. This was a huge accomplishment for me! I knew before having kids it was something I wanted to tackle. It’s been 4 years and going, yay!
4. I inspire investments … My high school business teacher used to tell the class he will invest in the Mars Bar Company stocks because I bought that many Mars bars.
5. The more I cook, the more I enjoy it. I love winging-it. I think I’m developing an addiction to the anticipation of taking that first bite to see if the dish turned out.
6. I’m a recovering exclamation mark user. I probably still use too may exclamation marks, but what can I say, I’m actually really excited about stuff.
7. Happiness does not just happen … you make it happen. It’s a constant reminder that creating a healthy [read imperfect yet balanced] lifestyle is about focusing your attention on the small things that make you feel happy in your body, mind and spirit.
8. I speak 3 languages. English, French and Romanian.
9. I’m a planner addict. I love goal setting, planning, and organizing every area of my life.
10. I think books are sacred. No, really, I do. I feel the author poured so much of their mind and soul into the words they wrote, that it’s precious. My books look pristine. I don’t break the binding, fold corners to mark the page or write in them.
11. I love creating pretty things online. I love making workbooks, cheatsheets, checklists, tracking sheets, pretty tags, cute labels for my kitchen, you name it.
