Hi, I’m Tanya

Here’s a few professional and personal things about me!

About Me

As you may have guessed if you’ve been wondering around my site, I’m a holistic nutritionist and personal trainer. Here’s the professional facts, I studied nutrition at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and became a personal trainer with Can-Fit Pro.

In my day to day work I do such things as cooking classes and demos, I have done many lectures and education classes on nutrition, fitness and living a life that doesn’t suck! And I also work with individuals one-on-one either in nutrition and/or personal training.  And in a past life I owned a health food store.  That was cool!

Here’s the more juicy stuff.

I eat meat and chocolate and ice cream and burgers and I also enjoy a glass of ice wine from time to time. Yes, you read all that right. I personally follow the 80/20 rule. I live a healthy life day to day, I drink green smoothies, eat raw food, meditate, exercise, breathe, stretch, sometimes I’m gluten free and vegan and I even detox from time to time. But I also LIVE life and enjoy myself. I know and understand that I am solely responsible for my own health, it’s up to me and only me to make the best of what this life has to offer, so I grab it with both hands and make life happen.

Live is really short and truly precious, I learned this when my Dad died at the young age of 46 (heart attack). I’ve also had my own health scares. When I was 25 I found a lump in my breast and at 28 I had cervical dysplasia (pre-cancerous cells in the cervix). It’s an under statement to say I was scared out of my mind. Fortunately, they were nothing too serious but again it forced me to look at how precious life is and that we are only here for a short period of time. Life is not meant to be wasted. Life is fun, an adventure, take risks, love, laugh, be silly, look after yourself, love yourself, be kind, share, dream, tell the truth, support, help, move, rest, eat real food, and sometimes eat ‘bad’ food. Make life an adventure, it’s way more fun that way!
