Welcome to Hey Nutrition Lady!
For those of you who don't know me, my name is Katie and I'm the Nutrition Lady! I'm a university-trained nutritionist with a Bachelor of Science in Food, Nutrition, and Health and Master of Science in Nutrition. I'm passionate about real food, a champion of body positivity and intuitive eating, and a meal-planning lunch-packing whiz.
My mission on Hey Nutrition Lady is to lean in on my science background and use critical thinking to help sift through the enormous amount of misinformation and pseudoscience when it comes to nutrition, to help you make informed decisions about what to eat in order to become your healthiest and happiest selves.
I'm a lover of carbs, a hater of mushrooms (the bane of my existence as a vegetarian), and a green smoothie aficionado. I make my own pasta, from scratch, and it's glorious, but I see equal value in feeding my family boxed macaroni and cheese from time to time.
Now that the new site is up and running you can expect fresh recipes and nutrition content weekly, but for now I'll leave you some of my favourite recipes from the archives!
This Chocolate Black Bean Brownie Smoothie is one of the most popular recipes on the site! It's loaded with plant-based protein thanks to the beans (you can't taste them, I promise!) and is thick, creamy, and luxurious.
These No (Added) Sugar Banana Bran Muffins are a staple in our home! I make a batch one a week and keep them in the freezer. Sweetened with only bananas and dates, they're perfectly sweet and make a great lunchbox treat or breakfast on the go.
This Mung Bean and Coconut Curry might be the most popular recipe on the site! Easy to make and packed with flavour, if you've got a package of mung beans and the back of your cupboard you're not sure what to do with, make this! It's freezer friendly, vegan, and totally delicious.
Orecchietti with Broccoli and Lemon is a favourite quick and easy weeknight dinner that packs in the veg and the flavours in a simple yet elegant dish.
And for a sweet treat, this Raw Chocolate Raspberry Mousse is just the thing! It's vegan, free from refined sugar, and packed with healthy fats. Plus: chocolate.
