Like most women, I wear many hats. Besides being a Holistic Nutritionist and self care advocate for all, I’m also a recipe developer, a plant centric whole food lover, a wife, and a mother (in no particular order), but above all I'm a woman on a life long journey to achieving my own personal ohm. In my spare time, I do laughter yoga and binge watch Grey’s Anatomy, but don’t we all do that?
You’re probably wondering how I got here. Keep reading…
Chances are I’ve been where you might be in this very moment. I know what it’s like to not feel like myself, but I also know what it’s like feel to amazing and everything else in between. Thanks to a lot of trial and error over the last 20 years, my studies in Holistic Nutrition and my hard core determination, I’ve found a way to navigate my wellness journey so that my good days outweigh my bad days. I’m certainly not perfect, I’ve finally accepted that, but more importantly I’ve (mostly) let go of the ridiculous notion that I should be.
Throughout all of this, I've learned that:
a) Diet is not one size fits all or set in stone for eternity; the right way to eat is as unique as you are and should change with the seasons and stages of life;
b) Mindset and lifestyle play a huge supporting (and sometimes leading) role in determining the state of our physical and emotional well being; so you can eat all the kale in the world, but if you’re stressed, anxious, depressed, it will affect your outlook and your overall well being on many levels;
c) Sometimes it’s not your fault and there is nothing you can do. You just have to give it time. This doesn’t mean giving up and letting go, it just means being patient and gentle with yourself and giving your mind, body and soul the time they need to get through a rough patch.
As a Holistic Nutritionist my goal is to empower you to eat well and live a more balanced and happy life by educating you about the benefits of natural nutrition and the powerful mind body spirit connection in ways that are relevant to you. I’ll give you the tools you need to make healthy choices and I’ll show you how to make lasting changes to your dietary habits, lifestyle and self-care routine at your own pace and on your own terms. It’s not a quick fix, it takes time, effort, determination and a real change in mindset and everyday habits, but the results are undeniably worth it.
I’ve created the “Nourish Live Pamper Guide: How to eat well & live a more balanced life in 9 doable steps” to help you get started. It’s a practical approach that anyone can follow, on any budget and it’s yours completely free when you Join The HolisticNiss Community.

Where did you get your training?
I got my training as a Holistic Nutritionist through the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition where I studied the science behind nutrition and learned about the powerful mind body spirit connection.
Through my course work, assignments and practical case work, I learned to help individuals achieve their personal health goals and regain balance, through dietary and lifestyle adjustments, more specifically, by correcting nutritional imbalances, utilizing stress management techniques and implementing self-care principles.
I share all of these things and more, in my Free guide and on my blog.
Where did you learn to cook?
Cooking and eating nutritious, delicious food is my passion. I am a self taught home chef and spent years developing recipes that I shared in a food blog and on my Instagram account. I love creating new recipes and using new preparation techniques, but I also love revisiting the classics to make them more nutrient dense without sacrificing their deliciousness. I am inspired by local, seasonal ingredients, my Lebanese heritage, my Canadian upbringing and my love of Italian food and I can show you how to prepare healthy meals and snacks that you and your family will enjoy.
