Best Memories of 2012

As we say good-bye to 2012, here’s my 12 favourite professional accomplishments I would like to have etched in electrons:

  1. Attended my first exclusive book launch party with new baby and husband as dates.
  2. Repeat publications in alive magazine including one on postpartum nutrition that’s dedicated to my new little Li
  3. Conducted nutrition analysis for a franchised restaurant wanting to make their Nutrition Information public
  4. Provided foods and nutrition research to Canada’s Most Trusted Media Personality
  5. Taught food literacy and simple meal prep to Montessori students in grade 1 through 4
  6. Helped a woman in Newfoundland normalize her blood sugar, lose weight and gain enough confidence to travel to Europe by herself
  7. Wrote my first e-book on heart health
  8. Developed content for an award-winning holistic nutrition App company
  9. Counseled numerous families towards a gluten-free, casein-free, Specific Carbohydrate or GAPS lifestyle
  10. Consoled numerous mothers as they laughed, cried and learned about a gluten-free, casein-free, Specific Carbohydrate or GAPS cooking and the benefits it may have on their family’s health
  11. Experienced my first consult with a Type 1 diabetic managing without insulin because of a raw vegan diet
  12. Helped a juice company in Thailand launch heart disease reversal program (EKFF is national and international!)

Looking back, it was not my best year as a nutritionist in private practice, but certainly one of my most eclectic and humbling as I submitted myself once again to the needs of an innocent child. In 2013, I look forward to continuing my specialization in weight-related metabolic disorders with a hefty serving of pediatrics on the side. I also resolve to invest more time in this website 🙂
