Welcome to Food For Thought!

Who Am I?

I am Mary-Margaret, a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN) and Certified Culinary Nutrition Expert (CNE) who also has Bachelor of Science in Nutrition (BscNutr). I am passionate about tying all of my education together to help people make better food decisions for optimal health.

Why Nutrition?

Food is our body’s fuel, and just like you make sure to give your car the right gas, you need to give your body the right fuel too. From personal experience and the experience of others around me, I have seen just how big of an impact food has on our health. We all have to eat to live, so why not eat better things so we can make the absolute most of our lives? After all, we only get one!

My Relationship With Food

I have been eating gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free for over seven years now, all by choice. (You can read about why I chose to change to eat this way here). It has been a challenging change to say the least, and is definitely not without its rough patches. However, the incredible healthiness and wellness I feel from eating this way makes it 100% worth the effort.

No, this does not mean I am promoting gluten, dairy and sugar-free lifestyles for everyone. I believe in eating well for your body, whatever that “well” is, whether, it’s Paleo, gluten-free, low-carb, vegan, Keto, etc. Whatever your body thrives off of is the way you should be eating.

My Thoughts on Food

Why This Blog?

While completing my Nutrition degree I couldn’t wait to share all my learnings with the world, so I created “Food For Thought”. I share scrumptious recipes, write about nutritional information, discuss food in the media and review various food products. My goal is to provide people with the information and knowledge to help them make healthy food choices.

Please join me on the journey to optimal health!


Please know that I am in no way trying to enforce anything I write about on anyone. I am just presenting information for you to consider and filter best for your individual lifestyle.

  1. I have started to “eating clean” about a year ago. I was shocked at the quick and overall effect it had on the way I feel. A couple challenges I have is that I am a type 1 diabetic and was diagnosed with pernicious anemia the same time I began eating clean. Any advice for me with these particular challenges?

    1. Hello Diana,
      Please accept my sincerest apologies for taking so long to get back to you. I am thrilled to hear that you have had great success with a diet change! It truly is amazing the difference good food can have on our body. Before I offer you any advice, would you be able to elaborate more on what you mean by “eating clean”? What are you eating/avoiding?
      It would help to have a clearer picture on your existing diet before I suggest any changes.

      Cheers for now!
